Chris Spencer and Chad Sanders are developing a teen dramedy, How To Survive Inglewood, for NBCU’s streaming platform Peacock.
The pair created and will co-write the series as well as executive produce it alongside Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary of Revelations Entertainment.
How to Survive Inglewood follows Black teenagers trying to get through the absurd, treacherous, and embarrassing obstacles that come with adolescence. After moving from the suburbs to Inglewood, the Sanders family will find that teenage years are universally magical, confusing, scary, and hormonal, but in this new environment, the emotional swings are crazier because the stakes are higher.
