In addition to singing and acting, Cynthia Erivo is taking on a new role as executive producer of the docuseries What We Keep.
The series, based on the book of the same name by Bill Shapiro and Naomi Wax, gives viewers a look into the homes of famous people to ask them the question, “Of all that you own, what object means the most to you and why?”
The logline reads, “In our current collective world experience, objects that provide comfort, memories, and safety are more important than ever. ‘What We Keep’ features unforgettable stories of deep love, pure inspiration, and great humor — and reveals these items as reminders of who we are.”
Erivo will executive produce alongside Shapiro, Wax, Oscar winner Dan Cogan (Icarus), and two-time Emmy winner Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?).
You can catch Erivo playing Aretha Franklin in the Nat Geo series Genius, as well as Doug Liman’s Chaos Walking and John Ridley’s Needle in a Timestack later this year.
