Stacey Dash stars in reality series about her interior design – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Stacey Dash, star of the ignorant film and spin-off TV series, seeks redemption in a new reality series.

Dash is to shine in A New Thing – with Stacey Dashwho will follow her as she leaves LA for New Hampshire in search of her reinvention as an interior designer at Debbe Daley Designs.

The series, which is in pre-production and currently being shopped to broadcasters and streamers, comes from Michael Holstein and The Content Farm.

It will follow her struggles and successes and document her return to the public eye after she was dismissed as a polarizing, outspoken conservative.

Dash, who also starred in Moving, Mo’ Money, Renaissance Man and Top view as well as on CSI and The game, is a rare right-wing in the entertainment business. She was hired as a Fox News contributor in 2014 and publicly supported Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy in 2016. She said last year that as a Trump supporter, she was “in some sort of box that I don’t belong in.”

While she’s reinventing herself as an interior designer, she hasn’t completely abandoned the Hollywood game. She recently signed up to star in a reboot of BET reality series College Hill: Celebrity Editionwho will see her live as a student with a number of other celebrities at Texas Southern University, one of the historically black colleges and universities.

Holstein, who started his career as a writer on HBO’s The wire and has worked on series including PBS’s Finding Your Roots, produces and it is developed by The Content Farm. Chris Brewster of The Content Farm and Mark Johnston of Eelay Media co-produce.

Dash said: “This has been a work in progress since I got clean and sober five and a half years ago. Interior design has always been a personal passion and a dream of mine. This may not be easy, but it’s a new thing and I I am excited to begin this journey, working with top designers and inspiring others to learn from their own mistakes and also pursue their dreams.”

Holstein added: “Stacey has such an inspiring story and is so positive, fun to work with and really committed to this project – it’s a pleasure to work with her and I think the public will enjoy the unique access she gives into her life. This is so much more than a typical follow doc or a star-powered reality show – it really is A New Thing and I love being a part of it.”
