Two Actors Who’d Call Harlem Home

Elizabeth Olsen may have gotten in the acting game much later than her older sisters, but now she’s finally managed to appear on a medium they haven’t. Olsen is headed to television after a straight-to-series order of a tentatively titled project called Widow that will serve as the beginning of Facebook entering the arena of legitimate television programming. Olsen will star in the series, which has been reported to be a half-hour dramedy.

Widow will run for 10 episodes and will tell the tale of a young grieving widow who reconnects with lovers she’s had in the past. Not much is known about the project or Olsen’s character beyond that, as even the series’ name is not rock-solid at this point.

Elizabeth Olsen will executive produce the tentatively titled series along with James Ponsoldt, who will also direct multiple episodes of the show. Lizzy Weiss is also on the executive producer’s list and will serve as Widow‘s show-runner. The series will be among the first of high-end content Facebook will bring to its platform, as the social media site is making a real effort towards making premium original content available on its Facebook Watch platform.

I couldn’t be prouder of the group we have brought together for this show. Kit’s story has been near and dear to me for years and I can’t wait to share our dark, funny, and complicated show with the world.

Elizabeth Olsen’s tentatively titled Widow series has a home at Facebook, but no release date to speak of just yet. For a look at some upcoming television shows that have release dates and will be coming to television in the early months of 2018, head on over to our mid-season premiere guide.

G.Keith Alexanderhttp://harlemamerica.com
As the former host of What's Hot! New York, the music and entertainment segment of Fox 5 New York’s “The McCreary Report”, G. Keith Alexander interviewed nearly 200 of today’s R&B and Hip-Hop artists and introduced his audiences to their hot debut releases, giving many their first exposure on TV. It is no question that G. Keith knows talent. It is also no wonder because, G. Keith is, himself, a tremendous talent. In radio, television, and in advertising doing voice overs, he has built an impressive career as a media broadcaster and communicator, having influenced millions of people with the sound of his voice. And what a voice! It is smooth, distinctive and commanding -- like his personal style.   Born and raised in Chicago, G. Keith as a young boy had dreams of becoming a disc jockey and eventually became music director and afternoon jock for his native city's WGCI. His baritone delivery has also resounded over the airwaves of Disco 92 WKTU, 98.7 KISS-FM, former jazz station WRVR, Inner City Broadcasting's WBLS in the Big Apple, Clear Channel’s Jammin’ 105 and Infinity’s New MIX 102.7. And while New York City has remained his home throughout his professional career, his appeal has been national.
