About the Show
Actress, comedian and cohost of ABC's "The View," Sherri Shepherd ("30 Rock," "Less Than Perfect") leaps from daytime to prime time to headline her own all-new, multi-camera comedy series, "Sherri." "Sherri" centers around a newly single mom, paralegal and part-time comedian/actress who tries to get back into the dating scene and move on with her life after divorcing her cheating husband. Sherri finds solace and support among her girlfriends at the office while juggling her hectic life.
"Sherri" marks the first comedy series ever to be wholly owned by Lifetime. The Network has picked up 12 episodes of the program, to be produced in New York by Lifetime Television. Also starring in the series are Elizabeth Regen ("The Black Donnellys"), Kate Reinders ("Ugly Betty"), Kali Rocha ("Grey's Anatomy") and Tammy Townsend ("Lincoln Heights").
Malcolm-Jamal Warner ("The Cosby Show") and James Avery ("The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"), will guest-star in multiple episodes.
"Sherri" is produced by Lifetime Television. Terri Minsky ("Less Than Perfect," "Lizzie McGuire"), Nina Wass and Gene Stein ("Less Than Perfect") are executive producers. Dave Flebotte ("Desperate Housewives") is creator and consultant. Shepherd, who will continue to cohost "The View," serves as a co-executive producer of "Sherri," along with John Peaslee and Judd Pillot ("According to Jim"). The comedy reunites Shepherd, Minsky, Wass and Stein, who last worked together on the ABC sitcom "Less Than Perfect."
