PILOT SCREENING. Drawing inspiration from dance/variety shows like of Solid GoldSoul Train and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, each episode of Sherman’s Showcase is hosted by Sherman McDaniels (Salahuddin), as he takes viewers through time, via music and comedy drawn from the 40-year library of a legendary (but fictional) musical variety show.  Whether it’s a questionably attired funk super group in the 1970s, an up-and-coming MC in the 1980s, or an R&B diva from the 1990s, Sherman’s Showcase has it all: music, comedy, famous guest stars and dancing. 

Panelists: Diallo Riddle (creator/writer/EP) and Bashir Salahuddin (creator/writer/EP/actor); Cast: Nigel Lythgoe, Bresha Webb 

Moderator: Jacqueline Coley (Rotten Tomatoes)
