BGN interviews TV showrunner Marissa Jo Cerar to discuss the upcoming series Black Cake.

Much like black cake itself — which “was essentially a plum pudding handed down to the Caribbeans by colonizers from a cold country” — widow Eleanor Bennet has a complicated history. Losing her battle with cancer, she leaves her two estranged children, Byron and Benny, a flash drive that holds previously untold stories of her journey from the Caribbean to America. This discovery unravels their identities, setting in motion a character-driven, multigenerational story about inheritance and the complications of multicultural family legacies.

Black Cake premieres November 1 on Hulu.
