About the show:
Seeking to address the failures of the comedy landscape and entertainment industry to include vital voices, this narrative series set in a limitless magical reality full of dynamic, hilarious characters is notable for its numerous firsts: the first all-black women writer’s room (led by Lauren Ashley Smith), the first black woman sketch director (Dime Davis, “Boomerang”), and the first sketch series cast composed entirely of black women.
Touching on such culturally relevant themes as social norms, anxiety, religion, sex, dating and relationships, each episode consists of five to six sketches and features guest stars such as Angela Bassett, Laverne Cox, Tia Mowry, Loretta Devine, Kelly Rowland and David Alan Grier.
