Diallo Finds The Riddle In "South Side" Chicago

As an EMMY and WGA nominated writer and actor, producer, show runner, and moonlighting DJ, Diallo Riddle has proven to be one of the most creative and multi-faceted talents in the entertainment industry today.  In 2018 Diallo can be seen starring on NBC’s smash hit summer comedy series Marlon, as fan-favorite Stevie, Marlon’s overly intelligent, yet oblivious friend from college and confidant.

While acting in front of the camera keeps Diallo busy (he also recently appeared on NBC’s new drama series “Rise”) he continues to flourish in his writing career.  It was recently announced that IFC picked up to series “Sherman’s Showcase,” a scripted musical variety sketch comedy show created by Diallo and his writing/producing partner Bashir Salahuddin (executive produced by John Legend’s Get Lifted Film Co).  The eight-episode series will premiere in 2019 and has it all: music, comedy, games, and dancing. 

Diallo and Salahuddin also wrote and produced the series “South Side” about a rent to own business on the south side of Chicago, which was recently given a series order by Comedy Central. While visiting the Windy City, Diallo stopped by to discuss working with Marlon, clear up any misconceptions about his new series and more.
