A taste of Milk + Honey

In case the rebirth of The Game on BET is a little too Young & the Restless for you, there maybe an additional option. Milk + Honey is a scripted TV/web series produced by Brown Paper Dolls with Idris Elba signing on as the executive producer. The dramedy chronicles the loves, lives, and tribulations of several young black women in Los Angeles. You'll see some new and familiar faces in this cast, like Debbie Allen (Fame), Lance Gross (House of Payne), Bryce Wilson (Beauty Shop), Faune Chambers (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Asha Kamali, Yaani King, Shauntay Hinton, Charles Divins, and Rob Smith.

Milk + Honey provides positive portrayals of young black women fulfilling their dreams in the big city, similar to popular shows like Girlfriends and Living Single. Blackfilm.com provides an interesting synopsis of the characters:
Nia, an aspiring actress on a quest to climb the Hollywood social ladder, tries to remain faithful through it all. Harper, the classic Black American Princess, shakes things up in the agency world. Samirah, an Ivy league educated free spirit and DJ, wants nothing to do with “the life.” Conversely, Farrah, a socialite wild child siren and heiress, is constantly looking for love and acceptance on the scene. The fifth character is the Los Angeles landscape – - it’s culture, music and fashion.
Hmmm...maybe BET could add a new show to its Tuesday night lineup?
