At the beginning of the year we told you about the new Idris Elba produced web series, “Milk + Honey” starring Lance Gross, Debbie Allen, Bryce Wilson, Faune Chambers, and newcomer Asha Kamali. Well, get ready to feast your eyes on this fab new show because the first episode is here!

Milk + Honey” is the brainchild of Dana Gills, Asha Kamali May, and Jeanette McDuffie, the divas behind the production company Brown Paper Dolls.

In an industry that doesn’t carve out too many spaces for positive depictions of Black women, Dana Gills said “Milk + Honey” is a labor of love.

“Milk + Honey is a passion project.  Working on it for over 3 years,  [it was] created because we wanted to showcase positive and diverse images of women of color—[which you] don’t see many on the big or little screen.”

The series follows four African-American women as they traverse spiritual, professional and romantic journeys in the City of Angels.

Check out the first episode and let us know what you think!

    Someone said earlier that it was love at first sight for them…DIDO!!!

    This show had me in like the first 5 seconds! Beautifully shot. Girls all looked flawless. And all the dudes were definitely worth staring at. What I enjoyed the most is seeing people of color in non-stereotypical roles. Yall know the usual: the no depth co-star or the waaay extra over-the-top sassy black girl etc.

    This is a breath of exquisitely fresh air. Much appreciated!

    I’m sorry to say, this show needs better actors & actresses, except for Debbie Allen and Lance Gross. They were a little weak.
