Kurt Farquhar (Black Lightning, The King of Queens, Moesha, Sister, Sister, Being Mary Jane) has composed the original score for the new Lifetime original film Wendy Williams: The Movie. The biographical drama is directed by Darren Grant (Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Make It Happen) and stars Ciera Payton in the title role, alongside Morocco Omari  as Wendy’s ex-husband Kevin Hunter. The movie chronicles Williams’ journey, from her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show. Leigh Davenport and Scarlett Lacey (Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance) wrote the script. Williams is executive producing the Front Street production with Will Packer (Girls Trip, Ride Along, Think Like a Man) and Sheila Ducksworth (With This Ring). Wendy Williams: The Movie will premiere this coming Saturday, January 30 on Lifetime.

Farquhar also continues to score The CW’s Black Lightning, which will return for its fourth and final season on February 8, as well as CBS’ The Neighborhood, which currently airs in its third season every Monday night.
