'Black Monday' Star Regina Hall Inks First-Look Deal at Showtime
Regina Hall is deepening her ties to Showtime.
The Black Monday star has signed a first-look deal with ViacomCBS' premium cable outlet, under which she'll develop projects via her Rh Negative banner. The first such project is already in the works: a one-hour comedy special that Hall will star in and executive produce.
"Regina is an undeniable and brilliant force in Hollywood, both in front of and behind the camera," said Amy Israel, executive vp scripted programming at Showtime. "She is one of the most dynamic and fearless actors of our generation and in her work on Black Monday, she hilariously destroys every scene she's in. We are thrilled at Showtime to continue and expand our relationship with Regina as a producer and eager to get to work on what promises to be an ambitious slate."
In addition to starring in Black Monday, which last week was renewed for a third season, Hall serves as a producer of the series. She's currently filming limited series Nine Perfect Strangers for Hulu and will star in and executive produce feature film Master.
"I am excited to call Showtime home," Hall said. "Working with Amy has been such a delightful and organic experience. I am thrilled to expand our partnership to create smart, meaningful and impactful stories."
Hall's was nominated for an Independent Spirit Awards in 2019 for Support the Girls. Her credits also include Girls Trip, The Hate U Give and the Scary Movie franchise. She's repped by ICM Partners and The Initiative Group.
