‘Madam C.J. Walker’: Cornelius Smith Jr., Keeya King & J. Alphonse Nicholson Join Netflix Limited Series

Wow, I can’t wait to see this! ~ V


Scandal alum Cornelius Smith Jr, Keeya King (Van Helsing) and J. Alphonse Nicholson (P-Valley) are set for recurring roles opposite Octavia Spencer and Tiffany Haddish in Madam C.J. Walker, an eight-episode limited series starring and executive produced by Oscar winner Spencer and executive produced by LeBron James.

Written by Nicole Asher based on the book On Her Own Ground by A’Lelia Bundles, Madam C.J. Walker tells the untold and highly irreverent story of black hair-care pioneer and mogul Madam C.J. Walker (Spencer) and how she overcame hostile turn-of-the-century America, epic rivalries, tumultuous marriages and some trifling family to become America’s first self-made black female millionaire.

Smith will play W.E.B. Dubois, America’s foremost black intellectual and civil rights activist who is publisher of The Crisis and a co-founder of the NAACP, who befriends Walker.

King will portray Peaches, a stunning, tomboyish jazz singer who befriends Walker’s daughter Lelia (Haddish). King plays Violet in Syfy’s Van Helsing and has guest-starred on Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. She is repped by Play Management and The Characters Agency.
