BET's The Run Down with Robin Thede takes a humorous and culturally relevant approach to its content, while offering a new perspective to the Late Night time slot.

Robin Thede, the former head writer of The Nightly Show, serves as the face of the series, tackling weekly issues concerning race, gender, politics, pop culture and everything in between. Through a combination of humorous skits, musical segments and satirical monologues, Thede attracts a wide demographic of viewers, who tune in to witness Thede's quick wit, and unique comedic voice as a woman of color in America.

The weekly half-hour show hopes to carve a more accessible path for women in comedy, encouraging and inspiring young women to pursue the typically male-dominated arena, while offering a more diversified television perspective.
