Well, ladies we’ve been craving positive images of ourselves on screen and it looks like our wish has come true.
A trailer for the new series, “Milk + Honey,” was released today and it looks pretty dope. The series follows four African-American women as they traverse spiritual, professional and romantic journeys in the City of Angels. The show stars legendary actress Debbie Allen, as well as Lance Gross, Bryce Wilson, Faune Chambers, and newcomer Asha Kamali.
“Milk + Honey” is being Executive produced by Idris Elba and the production company Brown Paper Dolls, which is comprised of three dynamic Black women—Dana Gills, Asha Kamali May, and Jeanette McDuffie.
According to Dana Gills, one of the series’ creators, “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.”
For now, “Milk+Honey” will be available via the web, but the series creators are hoping it gets picked up and aired on TV soon. Let’s keep our fingers crossed because this one looks GOOD!
