Los Angeles, Feb 24 (PTI) Veteran actor Phylicia Rashad is set to executive produce and possibly feature on the small screen adaptation of Emily March's ongoing 18-part novel series 'Eternity Springs'. 'The Cosby Show' alumna Rashad is joining hands with 'Virgin River' executive producers Roma Roth and Christopher E Perry to executive produce the series, reported Deadline.

John E Pogue, known for his work on 'Beauty and The Beast' and 'Everwood', is attached to pen and also executive produces the adaptation.

The plot is still under wraps, but according to the producers, the show will explore important and meaningful present-day issues while appealing to a diverse and multi-generational audience.

'We are excited to collaborate with Phylicia Rashad, an extraordinary, talented actor whose impressive body of work not only laid the foundation for inclusivity but opened the door to change in Hollywood at a time when it wasn’t as fashionable to do so,' said Roth.

A network is not yet attached.

Rashad recently appeared in the Netflix film 'Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey' and can be seen on NBC's hit family drama 'This Is Us'. PTI RDS RB RB
