Robin Thede Talks New Show ‘The Rundown’ on Sway In The Morning

Actress and writer Robin Thede stopped Sway In The Morning to give us the dig on her upcoming show The Rundown on BET. The show will speak on socio-economic issues that affect the black and African-American community.

Thede will be the only black woman on late-night television. She explains that the show removes itself from the guest invited, talk show style and delivers politics and pop culture in a satirical way.

“I’m not reporting news but I am definitely reacting to it and calling out the ridiculousness and the outrage,” she continued.

The Rundown premieres October 12 at 11pm. In the meantime, check out the full interview and get some sneak-peaks below.


Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
