Damon Wayans is back at ABC with new Sitcom “Let’s Stay Together”

Damon Wayans is returning to the TV screen with a new ABC project. ABC is the same station he partnered with for the hit TV show My Wife and Kids. Damon is also teaming up with a familiar mind in Don Reo, whom was the co-creator of My Wife and Kids.

According to sources, Let’s Stay Together is being pitched as a family comedy for a new kind of family. It will star Wayans as a single father who finds out it’s hard to get rid of millennial kids, and their kids. The sitcom reportedly features a storyline that mirrors Wayans’ own life.

In 2018, it was rumored that Hollywood would not book any of the Wayans brothers for new films due to what they called “audience exhaustion”. It seems that they dominated in so often with their zany comedy that audiences supposedly weren’t showing up in the same way that they once did. Despite that pushback, Daman and his siblings have consistently showed us that it’s better to pivot than to quit.

Damon is proving that theory one more time as he is now planning to go back on the road, planning to return to the stand-up comedy stage this fall as his pilot percolates. Long considered one of the pre-eminent stage comics, Wayans for a while thought that his edgy stand-up humor might not be welcome at this PC moment. But seeing how Dave Chappelle turned that notion on its ear with his recent Netflix special changed Wayans’ mind.

China McClain Quits the Black Lightning TV Series & Dedicates Her Career to God

“I’m doing God’s work now and I’m not doing anything else” says China.

Upon the recent news of the cancellation of the “Black Lightning” TV Series, Disney star China McClain announces that she quietly decided to leave the show prior to it’s cancellation. On a recent Facebook Live she remains vague about her full reasons for walking away, but stresses that it was not because she didn’t like the cast she was working with. China praised the cast and encouraged fans to watch the coming spin off featuring Jordan Calloway (AKA Pain Killer).

In the video below, China speaks about her next moves.

“All this is an illusion. It’s an illusion. This industry for what it is and everything people look to and praise, it’s not important,” she said. “God is moving me in more ways that’s bigger than this show. I’m doing God’s work now and I’m not doing anything else. I’m just going to put it plainly. I’ve never felt more awake in my life.”

In the video, China speaks more about the start of her own production company and everything God has been teaching her during the quarantine. While her full reasons for leaving the show seem to remain purposely unclear, she simply encourages fans to trust her decision.

Since the passing of Chadwick Boseman, China has been speaking more about God and other challenging topics that she has been wrestling with during this year and throughout the quarantine season. In the video she addresses her recent changes saying, “It’s been put on my heart to say these things and I want to take that same energy and put it into my movies.”

With tears in her eyes, she spoke more saying,
“I’m creating things now for y’all and it’s not to get a check. It’s to teach you something or to show you new avenues that entertainment doesn’t show you right now. We need the Spirit man in these projects. I don’t know where it’s gone. I can only pinpoint a few now and the rest of them hurt me to watch. A lot of people say they want change but, I’m ready for things to change and I want to help. I’m done teeny bopping around here. It’s not about making the best next move. I don’t even care about that anymore. I want to be apart of the good. If I’m not really apart of it and helping to push it forward, then I don’t know what I’m doing here. So, that’s what I want to do.”

We don’t know where these new decisions will take China next, but we and all of her fans will be ready to stand by with prayers and continued support! The Black Lightning Chapter in her life may be closing. But, it’s clear her journey continues and it’s full of promise!

There’s still one last season left of Black Lightning. So, be sure to watch! If you’re late to the party, catch up on all previous seasons on Netflix.
