Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira’s ‘Americanah’ Series Not Moving Forward at HBO Max



“Americanah” was supposed to start shooting earlier this year, but the production dates were pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This lead to a conflict in Lupita's diary so she then had to drop out.

The show received a 10-episode straight-to-series order with HBO. Both Nyong’o and Gurira were to serve as executive producers on the show, and Gurira writing and serving as showrunner.

Such a shame! Lupita was very passionate about this and had stalked/written to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie before she even got her big break in "12 years a slave".
