By Samantha Ofole-Prince

MC Lyte is developing a drama centered around the friendships between four sorority sisters. The rap/hip-hop connoisseur will serve as executive producer along with her producing partner Lynn Richardson under their Sunni Gyrl banner.

There's no word when the untitled drama, which is under development with the newly launched production company Kronicle Media will air.

Lyte is also set to star in the drama which follows four sorority sisters who are reunited under mysterious circumstances.

Headed by Korin Huggins and producing partner Monique Nash, Kronicle Media is an independent production company based in Los Angeles, Claif. that will develop drama, comedy and unscripted content for broadcast, cable and streaming networks, and digital platforms.

“We created Kronicle Media out of our desire to tell stories for and about women from diverse perspectives.  We saw a demand in the marketplace for female-centric content and felt this was the perfect time to capitalize on this, by creating a venture that would combine both our passion and producing experience.  We’re excited to dive in and make TV magic,” said Korin Huggins and Monique Nash.

Among its first projects, the new venture has signed a two-script development deal with ABC Signature Studios from writer, producer Josh Senter (“Finding Carter,” “Chasing Life”) for the one-hour drama, “Revival,” whose logline is currently under wraps.

Emmy-nominated producer Huggins oversaw Will Packer Productions’ television division under its first overall deal with Universal Television, from the company’s inception in 2013 until 2017 and served as co-executive producer on ABC’s “Uncle Buck,” NBC’s “Truth Be Told” and the History/A&E/Lifetime re-imagining of the miniseries “Roots."

Nash served as Director, Current Programming & Development at Will Packer Productions, working on “Being Mary Jane,” “Uncle Buck,” “Truth Be Told” and “Roots.” Her earlier roles include Manager, Current Programming at FOX Network, where she worked on “Bones,” “The Simpsons,” “Back to You,” and “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”
