Karen Pittman may embrace Los Angeles living, but her aesthetic knows no borders. The objects in her home represent not merely her travels and great taste, but her mindful, empowered philosophy. And she brings that same intention to her roles. Whether you know her as Dr. Nya Wallace, the professor on And Just Like That or Mia Jordan, a no-nonsense producer on The Morning Show, her characters are never predictable and always multilayered. “They’re very complicated women,” she says. “They’re all very accomplished in a way that’s very late 20th century, early 21st century, African-American woman.”
The same can be said of her latest character. This August, Pittman takes the lead in Hallmark’s Unthinkably Good Things, as a woman confronting life’s crossroads while surrounded by her best friends in Tuscany.
