Behind the camera, the crew for Naomi continues to grow, this wime with the announcement that DeMane Davis, known for projects such as Queen Sugar and Self Made, will be joining Ava DuVernay and Jill Blankenship as a co-Executive Producer as part of a deal with WBTV that Davis signed. As the show is currently filming, we are excited to see what she will bring to the show. Davis also released a statement regarding the announcement:
Growing up, I would scarf down Cap’n Crunch while watching Bugs Bunny every Saturday. I imagined a lot of things, but back then seeing him lean up against the Warner Bros. logo, I don’t think I imagined this. I’m forever grateful to Ava for putting me in this rocket ship. Getting to go ‘home’ and work with her and my Array family on ‘Naomi’ is a gift.
