Omarion to Produce, Star in AllBlk Dramedy Series Based On His Life


B2K member and actor Omari “Omarion” Grandberry will executive produce and star in a dramedy series for AMC Network’s AllBlk called Involved. The series will be loosely based on Grandberry’s life.


According to Deadline, Omarion will star as OB Sharp, a singer who gained fame as a boyband member during his childhood. As Sharp is set to embark on a worldwide tour, he secretly wants to leave the group to be a more present dad and have a better co-parenting relationship with his child’s mother Shayla, who lives in his guesthouse with her new boyfriend. The only person who has always understood him and his lifestyle is his best friend, Maya, who is openly bisexual. They’ve always had an intimate connection without being physical; however, all that changes when they meet Edy, an eclectic flower shop owner with a free spirit and fluid lifestyle. Suddenly, OB’s love life gets an extreme makeover, and together, they discover their new normal as a throuple. Faced with a multitude of changes in a short timeframe, OB Sharp is adjusting to new norms within himself, relationship and family dynamics and new business ventures.


“Just like multi hyphenated entertainers Jamie Foxx, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith who all have influenced and inspired me and a whole culture, Involved is intended to inspire, shift and impact the culture of American society’s thinking and understanding of special family dynamics. There is no better way for us to learn about and observe these cultural diversities than through the medium of entertainment,” said Omarion.


Tommy Morgan Jr., Kevin G. Boyd and Deji LaRay are the series co-creators. The series’ pilot is being written by Boyd and directed by Bentley Kyle Evans, who will serve as co-showrunners. Michelle Le Fleur will also executive produce alongside AllBlk’s General Manager Brett Dismuke, and SVP of Development & Production Nikki Love.


“Omarion is an expert storyteller across multiple mediums, and we could not be more excited to further our partnership by helping him bring this story to life on AllBlk. As a leader in programming by and for Black voices, we know our audience will appreciate such an intriguing and compelling story,” added Dismuke.
