Delroy Lindo Set To Headline ABC Drama Pilot ‘Harlem’s Kitchen’
The Good Fight co-star Delroy Lindo has closed a deal to play the lead in Harlem’s Kitchen, ABC’s Harlem family restaurant drama pilot from Zahir McGhee, Mandeville Television and ABC Studios.

As Deadline revealed last month when Lindo started negotiations for the role, his interest in the ABC pilot led to his decision to leave the CBS All Access legal drama The Good Fight as a series regular after the upcoming fourth season when his contract is up.

Written by McGhee and to be directed by Stephen Williams, Harlem’s Kitchen is set in a fine dining restaurant in Harlem and centers on Ellis Rice (Lindo), Executive Chef and patriarch, who runs a successful restaurant with his wife and three daughters. But an unexpected death thrusts the family into turmoil and puts the restaurant’s future in jeopardy as long-buried secrets are revealed.
