P-Valley’s Creator-Katori Hall Is a Force To Be Reckoned With

Katori Hall was the first Black valedictorian at her high school. She attended Columbia University and Harvard and won the Pulitzer Prize for her stage play The Hot Wing King. She's also the creator of the top-rated show P-Valley and is convincing us that she’s a creative who is here to stay! She's become a triple threat; her recognition in film, television, theater and book writing is growing. The theater community nominated her for a Tony Award after she wrote Tina: The Tina Turner Musical. She's also received the prestigious Olivier Award. Hall has received several fellowships and additional recognition in theater arts as well.

However, P-Valley gained a large fanbase and great commercial success after its first season. And there are mentions that the rapper Megan Thee Stallion's music will appear on this season's soundtrack. The show does a great job of encapsulating American society, current events, abuse, sexual orientation, violence, sexism, poverty, trickery, religion, and crime surrounding the lives of the employees at the Pynk strip club in the fictional city of Chucalissa, Mississippi.

Via Instagram, Katori credits the show's talent as being some of the best people to work with in the entertainment industry! P-Valley airs on Sunday at 10 pm (EST).
