The Best Man: Final Chapters written and executive produced by Malcolm D. Lee and Danya Lynne North has started production of a 10 episode limited dramedy series by order of Peacock.
"Based upon the eponymous Universal film franchise written and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the series will catch up with Harper, Robyn, Jordan, Lance, Quentin, Shelby, Candace, and Murch as relationships evolve and past grievances resurface in the unpredictable stages of midlife crisis meets midlife renaissance."
"The Best Man films were a cultural touchstone during my college days — and they've remained influential pop culture references to this day," said Dayna Lynn North. "I've grown up laughing with these characters, copying their dance moves, and grieving at their losses. I am overjoyed to be partnering with Malcolm D. Lee and this amazing cast to adapt this iconic franchise at Peacock."
"Here we go! The band is back together! I am very excited to bring these iconic characters back to the fans who have supported us through this franchise," said Malcolm D. Lee. "We are thrilled to deliver everything one would expect from this group of friends in The Best Man universe and take them through their final chapters. We can't wait! I told you it wouldn't be 14 more years."
Original cast from the hit films are set to return including Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and Harold Perrineau.
Blocking and rehearsing a scene on the streets of Manhattan, filming is in progress on the Universal Television produced series found working on the Upper East Side.
