Veteran star of stage and screen, Jenifer Lewis is starring in a new (scripted) comedy web series, along with D.J. Pierce a.k.a. Shangela (the breakout star from the TV series RuPaul’s Drag Race), titled Jenifer Lewis and Shangela.

Jenifer Lewis and Shangela follows the comic adventures of Ms. Lewis and Shangela as the show business diva mentors the up-and-coming drag performer, who lives in the basement apartment of her Hollywood mansion.

Jenifer Lewis and Shangela is a fun romp for our fans. We want to share the good times and unpredictable foolishness we enjoy just hanging out together,” said Ms. Lewis, who also recently headlined her own one-woman show titled Black Don’t Crack.

Jenifer Lewis and Shangela is self-produced by Lewis with The Collaboration Factory.

The series premiered last week, with new episodes scheduled to debut weekly on Wednesdays this month.
