So if you don’t know already, I’m obsessed with Black film and television its just kinda my ish :). So I don;t just like the stuff that goes mainstream, I like to get my hand on the more obscure stuff. So looking at my the Concrete Loop. I ran across this web series produced my Idris Elba (let’s all take a moment and pause as we think of how beautiful the man is), anyway, Idris back this film company called brown paper dolls which was started by three black women from Chicago :). So so far their are only two ten minute episodes to the series. I watched both at the same time and overall I thought it was kind of dope. Since the episodes are so short, the first episode was kind of confusing for me but, after I finished the second episode I got a better grasp of what was going on. The series thus far is really about these black women just trying to navigate their way through life & love while following their dreams. I loved the act that these women were like women I’ve come across in my life. They had on flyy ass outfits, they were beautiful and I could relate to some of the things that they had to say. I would say if you have about twenty minutes to spare its definatly worth looking at. Debbie Allen is in it 🙂
Idris said: “I decided to get involved with Milk + Honey because of the strong demand for content that is relatable and authentic” states Elba about his involvement with the project, “Brown Paper Dolls has an intuitive way of displaying positive images of women throughout the series.”
