Amandla Joins the Cast of NBC’s Craig Robinson Comedy Pilot
Great news for Amandla Stenberg fans, the young actress has joined the cast of a new comedy pilot on NBC:
From executive producers Owen Ellickson and Greg Daniels, the untitled comedy pilot centers on Craig (Robinson), a talented musician who adjusts to his new life as a middle school music teacher, where he maneuvers precocious kids, teacher politics and the temptation of single moms.
Stenberg will play Irene, a spunky, fearless and smart eighth grader who is desperate to learn to sing despite her terribly off-key voice and Craig’s reluctance to teach her. Amanda Lund and Larenz Tate co-star.
It’ll certainly be interesting to see Amandla singing so hopefully the pilot episode does well and the series is picked up by NBC.
