Created by Robin Thede, A Black Lady Sketch Show, features untold culturally relevant narratives through relatable and riotous characters, and impressive celebrity guests. The show is known for having 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. Trust me when I say, you will rewind hilarious one-liners every few minutes and laugh obnoxiously loud.
Insecure, starring Issa Rae (The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl) is a comedic snapshot of black life in Los Angeles following storylines for Issa, the main character, as well as her best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji) and other loveable and entertaining characters.

Satirical and provocative, #BlackAF, exploded onto the scene April 2020. Kenya Barris (creator) plays a dramatized version of himself opposite Rashida Jones (Joya Barris).
