Guess who’s back? And it only took three months. Larry Wilmore will be returning to TV. Not that he really went anywhere, he just wasn’t in front of the camera for a hot minute. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Wilmore will develop material for his own projects as well as supervise others and work with ABC Studios in targeting upcoming talent for the studio.
“I’m excited beyond words to be back at ABC and look forward to this creative partnership. Disney took a chance on me as a young writer years ago and so I’m thrilled to return to the Mouse House. I hope my room still looks the same,” Wilmore said in a statement.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Larry Wilmore back to ABC Studios. We worked closely with Larry while we were developing Black-ish and are looking forward to what’s coming next from this incredibly talented writer-producer,” ABC Studios president Patrick Moran said.
Wilmore already executive produces the ABC hit Black-ish.
