OLTL alum Tika Sumpter to EP and star in CBS primetime's The 313

Former One Life to Live star Tika Sumpter (ex-Layla Williamson) will both star in and co-executive produce CBS's new series The 313.

Hot on the heels of her role as Michelle Obama in the film Southside With You comes word that former One Life to Live star Tika Sumpter (ex-Layla Williamson) is set to topline and co-executive produce the new CBS drama The 313.

The political series follows a 29-year-old city council president (Sumpter), who suddenly becomes the mayor of Detroit after a sex scandal brings down the current administration, Deadline reports.



Mad Men writer Tracy McMillan will be penning the first script of the series, which will be co-executive produced by Michael London.
