Mission Statement

The show focuses on the lives of people of color living in New York City. Many of the topics explored are based on contemporary social & cultural issues. Diversity is big for us; so it's also important to hire a cast and crew that reflects our mission of empowerment.

The Story



About the Series 

A racially mixed, outspoken actress in New York City constantly being told "no" and offering herself a "yes."


Growing up in two different (but not so different) cultures, our main character (Glenís) tries to navigate her day to day struggles, big and small. She faces identity issues, constant career rejection, loss of power, and social oppression all while attempting to find her own voice. With the help of two amazing parents, one who is the typical Dominican mother and a sarcastic activist Black father; there isn’t any challenge she can’t take on. The main characters are smart, witty and relatable.  Join us in exploring the many layers that make us human. 


Our Goal

To create content that celebrates diversity, educates people on social issues and inspires our audience to seek out what they're really passionate about.
