Empire star Rhyon Nicole Brown is set as a lead opposite Yaya DaCosta, Morris Chestnut, LaToya Luckett and Alana Bright in Fox drama series Our Kind Of People, from writer/executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Mixed-ish) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, Star).
According to Deadline, Brown will play Lauren Dupont, Leah (Luckett) and Raymond’s (Chestnut) daughter, a beautiful and ultra-privileged girl who rules the young social set of The Bluffs and is an established social media influencer. She takes an instant dislike to Angela’s (DaCosta) daughter Nikki (Bright), who has the audacity to call her out for her public rudeness. However, behind the scenes, she is trying to come to terms with her identity as a queer woman of color in her conservative community, and when Nikki discovers her secret, Lauren’s antipathy for the newcomer grows.
Congratulations to Rhyon!
