Updated: Oct 17, 2021

There is power in the stories women never tell! Screenwriters and twin sisters, JaNeika and JaSheika James have successfully navigated the Entertainment industry, respectively, and are now sharing it all in new memoir, "Living Double"! Credited with writing for hit TV shows such as 'Empire', 'Seinfeld', & 'Scrubs', the James sisters have proven to be Master Manifestors of their own paths.

Their Story

"Following JaNeika’s Masters studies at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communication, she had the opportunity to interview Yvette Lee Bowser, Creator and Executive Producer of the hit Fox television series, LIVING SINGLE. She began her career working for Mrs. Bowser on UPN’s HALF & HALF. JaNeika went on to work under the producing team of Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan at ABC Studios, and later in Scripted Development at VH1. JaNeika and JaSheika rose up the ranks from Staff Writers to Supervising Producers on Fox’s groundbreaking hit series, EMPIRE. Currently, they serve as Co-Executive Producers on HBO Max’s GOSSIP GIRL, and are developing a USA pilot, PHILLY REIGN, as Executive Producers alongside Oscar-Nominated actress, Mary J. Blige. They are committed to creating, developing, and writing projects that enlighten, inspire, and entertain audiences around the world."

Why you should read "Living Double".....

"JaNeika and JaSheika discuss their love for television, which grew out of watching movies and TV shows on VHS while living in Germany, and later watching soap operas with their grandmother. After their mother left the U.S. Air Force, the family settled in Tampa, FL. Although their obsession with television continued, the identical twins didn’t seriously consider TV writing as a career until they learned one of their favorite shows, Living Single, was created by Yvette Lee Bowser— an African-American woman, who was the first to create and show-run her own television series. That knowledge inevitably sparked JaNeika and JaSheika’s dream of one day writing and creating their own television shows. Living Double is the story of their journey to accomplishing their shared dream."
