Issa Rae, one of our favorite funny women, is back with yet another hilarious series, but this time instead of writing about awkward situations or questionable L.A. dudes, she’s taking her talents to church.
“The Choir,” her latest effort for AlrightTV, is “a dramedy that follows the United Church of Holy Christ in Fellowship’s choir as they attempt to rebuild their dying congregation.”
In some churches the choir is the main attraction for the faithful, so the members of United Church of Holy Christ in Fellowship’s chorus hatch a slew of creative—and at times inappropriate—ways to turn the church around.
In the first episode, the choir finds itself in the crosshairs of the interim pastor after singing a sexed up version of a gospel song. But things quickly go from bad to worse, and the group is left wondering if they can really pull the congregation together at all.
Check out the first two episodes of “The Choir”’ Will you continue to tune in?
