I had the pleasure of directing Seasons 1 and 2 of American Koko, a webseries created by and starring Diarra Kilpatrick and Executive Produced by Viola Davis. We premiered on ABC.com this week and I invite you to check out the show, spread the word, and let me know your thoughts! I’m proud of what we were able to accomplish with our dedicated cast and crew.
The link to the show is below, as well as the trailer, and of course some behind the scenes flicks from my Instagram [@double7].
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Akosua Millard, codenamed “Koko”, investigates and solves sticky racial situations in a post post-racial America as a member of the E.A.R. Agency (Everybody’s A little bit Racist). As she and her team of specialists tackle cases, she herself is trying to reconcile the trauma of her past that has led to outbursts of her Angry Black Woman syndrome. It gets in the way of her work…and more importantly, her dating life as her latest boyfriend may be the downfall to her and the agency!
