Lean On Me

When a spirited young black teacher Amari Baldwin scores the principal job at an Akron, Ohio, public high school, she must dig deep to transform a failing campus into an urban oasis. In a time when education and school safety have life-or-death stakes, Amari will take on a broken system that tests her mettle, love life and family. But can she keep her moxie in check in order to embody the aspirational educator that motivates and uplifts an entire community?


Wendy Calhoun will write the pilot, as well as executive produce with LeBron James and Maverick Carter via SpringHill. John Legend, Mike Jackson and Ty Stiklorius for Get Lifted will also serve as executive producers.
