Lana Condor to Star in Netflix Comedy Series 'Boo, Bitch'
Lana Condor is staying in business with Netflix.
The To All the Boys I've Loved Before favorite has signed on to star and exec produce an eight-episode limited comedy series for the streamer.
Titled Boo, Bitch, the series takes place over the course of one night and revolves around a high school senior, who has lived her life safely under the radar, who seizes the opportunity to change her narrative and start living an epic life only to find out the next morning that she's a ghost.
The series is based on an original idea from newcomers Tim Schauer and Kuba Soltysiak. On My Block showrunner Lauren Iungerich and Erin Ehrlich (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) created a new take on Schauer and Soltysiak's original script. Ehrlich and Iungerich will serve as showrunners and are credited alongside Schauer and Soltysiak as co-creators on the series. Jonathon Komack Martin (Deadpool), Blake Goza (The Escort) and Jamie Dooner (On My Block) will also exec produce.
A premiere timeframe has not yet been determined.
Boo, Bitch marks Condor's latest collaboration with Netflix after she rocketed to fame as the first Asian-American leading lady in a YA romantic comedy as Lara Jean Covey in the streamer's To All The Boys I've Loved Before and its sequel, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. The third and final film in the series, To All the Boys: Always & Forever, will debut Feb. 12 on Netflix. Condor's credits also include HBO Max's upcoming Berlanti film Moonshot. Previous work includes Deadly Class, Alita: Battle Angel and X-Men: Apocalypse. Condor is repped by ICM and Goodman Genow.
The news comes the same week that Netflix renewed Iungerich's breakout comedy On My Block for a fourth and final season. The Awkward creator remains in-house at the streaming giant with an overall deal. Iungerich is with ICM.
Erhlich is with UTA and 3 Arts; Schauer, Sotysiak, Martin and Goza are also with ICM.
