Onyx Collective has picked up its first scripted comedy. Unprisoned, an eight-episode series from ABC Signature that stars Kerry Washington and Delroy Lindo, will streamed exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ in all other territories.
Inspired by the life of Terry McMillan, Unprisoned is a half-hour about “a messy but perfectionist relationship therapist and single mom whose life is turned right-side-up when her dad gets out of prison and moves in with her and her teenage son.”
Washington (Scandal) plays Paige Alexander, a marriage and family therapist and mom to 16-year-old Finn. The actress will executive produce along with Pilar Savone through their Simpson Street production company. Simpson Street is currently producing Onyx’s legal drama Reasonable Doubt from ABC Signature.
