Actress, comedienne and co-host of ABC’s The View, Sherri has moved from daytime to primetime to headline her own comedy series “Sherri,” premiering at 7PM ET/PT on Lifetime. Sherri will bow as part of a one-hour comedy block paired with the returning Rita Rocks, starring Nicole Sullivan, at 7:30PM ET/PT. Sherri marks the first comedy series ever to be wholly owned by Lifetime. The Network has picked up 12 episodes of the program, to be produced in New York by Lifetime Television.
Both series will feature stripped original episodes for a full week. Sherri will then move into its regular timeslot (Tuesdays, 10PM ET/PT), followed by Rita Rocks (Tuesdays, 10:30PM ET/PT). Sherri centers around a newly single mom, paralegal and part-time comedienne/actress who tries to get back into the dating scene and move on with her life after divorcing her cheating husband. Sherri finds solace and support among her girlfriends at the office while juggling her hectic life.
