In this episode of the Black Girl Nerds podcast, we interview the team behind the new Prime Video comedy series Harlem. The series stars Meagan Good, Jerrie Johnson, Grace Byers, Shoniqua Shandai, Tyler Lepley and is created by writer Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip).
Featured in this episode are Oliver, Good, Johnson, Shandai, and Lepley.
Harlem follows four stylish and ambitious best girlfriends in Harlem NYC, the mecca of Black culture in America. Camille (Good) is a popular young anthropology professor at Columbia with extensive knowledge of the dating norms of many cultures but has a hard time navigating her own love life; Tye (Johnson) is a successful, queer dating app creator who prefers keeping vulnerability — and romantic partners — at arm’s length; Quinn (Byers) is a hopeless romantic and trust fund fashion designer who is trying to give back to the world while running a struggling business; Angie (Shandai) is a confident, vibrant, and filter-free singer and actress who also lives rent-free and fabulously with Quinn. Together, they level up from their 20s into the next phase of their careers, relationships, and big city dreams.
