Mission Statement

Goals N' Shit is created, written by and starring people of color. Its focus is showing a lesser seen narrative of millennial black women holding privilege in one hand and struggle in the other. From our crew to our desired audience, we aim to be diverse and inclusive.

The Story

Goals N' Shit follows BISPA, a woman that's JUST hit rock bottom. She's been spit on (literally), fired and broken up with -- and has never faced this kind of rejection in her life. Bispa's forced to confront some dark truths about herself and one that she definitely does not want to face is the fact that she is *gasp* NORMAL. 

Season One

Bispa has a thriving relationship with her best friend KERI,

and a loving relationship with her boyfriend TOMÁS.

But it doesn't last for long. 


Keri's a first generation Ghanian-American and besides working 50+ hour weeks as a nurse, also sells African clothes on the side to subsidize pay and take care of her family at home. Over the season, we see that Keri gets close -- real close -- to being fed up with Bispa's self-absorbed ways. Does the friendship last through hard times? We'll see. 


Tomás and Bispa have been dating for almost a year. It's been smooth sailing until Bispa starts to have a breakdown that's more than Tomás (btw, his real name is Thomas, but he's fancy) bargained for. He becomes emotionally unavailable (surprise) and now wants to completely break ties. But relationships are never THAT simple, so season one chronicles their journey.


All the while Bispa is trying every way she can to regain a semblance of the status and priviledge she once held. That means lying, exagerrating, chakra-aligning, building, breaking down and more. In season one Bispa attempts to launch a new business herself -- and sees that the journey ain't pretty.


Since we're tackling  quite heavy topics, our way of infusing humor is through absurdity. The more outlandish the situation or outcome, the better.  


In order to tell our story the best way we can, need your contributions to help make our project look as beautiful as possible as well as keep our cast and crew happy and fed!


We belive that GOALS N' SHIT is necessary viewing. As our society further glamourizes perfection, quickly changing beauty standards, instant-gratification, the "hustle" mentatlity and more, we want to take it back. Slow it down. Show that life gets messy, gets put on pause, can sometimes be a struggle but also that YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT -- and can have a lot of fun along the way.


Let's make light of this mess called life and own our GOALS N' SHIT.
