Hailey Kilgore, who was Tony-nominated for her performance as Ti Moune in the Tony-winning revival of Once On This Island, will be a series regular in the forthcoming ABC series executive-produced by and starring Tony winner Leslie Odom Jr., according to Deadline.
Saladin K. Patterson will pen the currently untitled multi-camera comedy, inspired by the life of pastors Touré and Sarah Roberts. The series casts Hamilton's Odom and Kelly Jenrette as the pastors (named Omari and Hope in the series), who share a home with their combined four children. Kilgore, who also has a recurring role in NBC's The Village, has been cast as Omari’s biological daughter.
Kerry Washington, recently seen on Broadway in American Son (and soon to reprise her performance in a Netflix adaptation), produces alongside Odom and Patterson.
