Saidah Arrika Ekulona Upped To Series Regular For Season 4 – Deadline
September 7, 2022
EXCLUSIVE: Abishola will be seeing more of her mom in the upcoming season of Bob ♥ Abishola.Saidah Arrika Ekulona, who heavily recurred as Ebunoluwa in seasons 2 and 3 of the CBS/Warner Bros. TV comedy, has been promoted to series regular for Season 4.
Ebunoluwa is Abishola’s (Folake Olowofoyeku) mother. She and Dottie (Christine Ebersole) have become fast friends over their heavy-handed parenting styles. When Abishola was growing up in Nigeria, her mother was a harsh authoritarian, more recently Abishola has come to see some holes in her mother’s thick armor. Though Abishola doesn’t usually see it, outsiders can see that from Ebunoluwa’s directness, to her parenting style, to the pride she takes in her children’s accomplishments, Abishola is absolutely her mother’s daughter.
Bob ♥ Abishola is a love story about a middle-aged compression sock businessman from Detroit who unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, a Nigerian immigrant, while recovering from a heart attack and sets his sights on winning her over. Undaunted by Abishola’s lack of initial interest or the vast differences in their backgrounds, Bob was determined to win Abishola’s heart, in this comedic examination of immigrant life in America.
Billy Gardell and Folake Olowofoyeku star along with Gina Yashere, Christine Ebersole, Matt Jones, Maribeth Monroe, Vernee Watson, Barry Shabaka Henley, Travis Wolfe, Jr., Shola Adewusi, Anthony Okungbowa, Bayo Akinfemi and Saidah Arrika Ekulona.
Bob ♥ Abishola is from Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Chuck Lorre, Al Higgins, Gina Yashere and Matt Ross serve as the executive producers and showrunners.
Season 4 premieres Monday, September 19, at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
Ekulona recently recurred on AMC’s Better Call Saul and is recurring in Amazon’s series remake A League Of Their Own. She is repped by Gersh and Trademark Talent.
