Original Dreamgirls star and Grey's Anatomy Emmy winner Loretta Devine is tapped for a recurring role in P-Valley, the upcoming Starz adaptation of Katori Hall's play Pussy Valley, according to Deadline. The previously announced hour-long series will follow the lives of those working in a small-town Mississippi strip club, as well as the locals who come through its doors.
Devine will play the Granmuva of Uncle Clifford, played by Nicco Annan, who is reprising the role from the play's world premiere at the Mixed Blood Theatre in Minneapolis.
The cast of P-Valley also features Elarica Johnson, Shannon Thorton, Skyler Joy, J. Alphonse Nicholson, and Parker Sawyers. Chernin Entertainment executive produces along with Hall, who is the series’ showrunner.
Hall is well-known for The Mountaintop, her Olivier Award-winning drama about the final hours of Martin Luther King Jr. before his assassination. The play was seen on Broadway starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett.
