The Best Man movie franchise is expanding to TV. According to Deadline, Peacock has ordered a 10-episode limited series The Best Man: The Final Chapters from the movies’ writer and director Malcolm D. Lee, and former Insecure executive producer Dayna Lynne North.
The Best Man and The Best Man Holiday is set to return, including Sanaa Lathan, Morris Chestnut, Melissa De Sousa, Harold Perrineau, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Nia Long, and Taye Diggs. Monica Calhoun is the only cast member that will be missing from the series because her character passed away from cancer in the film’s sequel.
“We’re excited to reunite this beloved cast for a limited series run of The Best Man for Peacock,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television, and Streaming. “With a powerhouse duo like Malcolm and Dayna, fans will fall in love with our favorite group of friends all over again.”
