“He’s going to be working with us for a while.” Set against a vibrant but rapidly gentrifying ‘Leimert Park,’ the web-series follows best friends and roommates as they navigate life, love and sex. Things get complicated when three best friends share a house in South LA’s Leimert Park. Despite being married, beats-maker Mickey hasn’t had an orgasm in three months, Bridget mistakes sex for love while assisting a visiting artist in residence and Kendra secretly shoots videos of her numerous sexual encounters, hoping this will finally be her break into the art world for her own art show.
Created by Mel Jones, Kady Kamakaté, and Davita Scarlett, first time director Mel Jones debuts the comedy series about gentrification and Black friendship.
‘Leimert Park’ starring Ashley Blaine Featherson, Ashlí Haynes, Asia’h Epperson, Wade Allain-Marcus, Franz Latten, and Ikenna Okoye is set to premiere at Sundance 2018. The series is executive produced by Stephanie Allain, Charles King, and Aaliyah Williams.
