Fresh off the premiere of her debut feature, Queen and Slim, Lena Waithe has released the trailer for her coming-of-age comedy on BET, Twenties.
Loosely based on Waithe’s start in the industry, the eight-episode series follows Hattie (Jonica “JoJo” T. Gibbs), a queer aspiring TV writer, as she navigates young adulthood alongside her friends Marie (Christina Elmore) and Nia (Gabrielle Graham).
That includes jump starting her career as a writers’ room production assistant, which (unfortunately for her) comprises office politics, unexpected coffee runs and one powerful boss.
Guest stars include Sean “Big Sean” Anderson in his debut role, Jenifer Lewis, Rick Fox, Vanessa Williams, Seth Green, Iman Shumpert, Kym Whitley, Chuey Martinez, Marsha Thomason, and Nazanin Mandi.
