“Superstar” will be distributed by Paramount, through a deal with NBC-TV and producer Lorne Michaels.
Laybourne’s credits include the role of Tasha on the MTV sitcom “Apartment 2F.” She has also appeared on Comedy Cen-tral’s “Viva Variety” and “Premium Blend.”
The deal was brokered by Emmy’s reps at the William Morris Agency and manager Maureen Taran of the Barry Katz Ent. Group.
