And in one candid moment, she shares the details of her heartfelt pep talk with Angela Bassett and her love for indoor rock climbing. Watch the clip here.

Baggage Claim star Paula Patton is headed to the small screen for a new drama for ABC. Deadline reports that Paula has signed on to star in ABC drama pilot Runner. It will be her first time leading a tv series. How’s THAT for a post-divorce comeback?
“Runner”, written by Michael Cooney and directed by Michael Offer, delves into gun control and arms dealing – but from the perspective of a woman. Deadline says,
“It centers on Lauren Marks (Patton), a wife and mother who had believed her husband had died in a plane crash, only to discover him alive, well and traveling with a mysterious woman who uses Lauren’s stolen identity. Thrown into a world of secrets and crime, Lauren finds herself running into Mexican cartels and people from her past she had hoped to forget.”
Sounds juicy! ABC hasn’t revealed when filming starts on the tv show, but we do know that Paula will be back on the big screen in March 2016 with the fantasy flick Warcraft. We’re loving all the YBF Chicks taking over network tv!
