A Luv Tale: The Series
Opening with a steamy flirtation between Taylor (Sheria Irving) and Candice (Vanessa Williams), A Luv Tale: The Series takes the audience on a clever and engaging journey full of twists and turns, melodrama, and sexy encounters. Set in historic Harlem and reminiscent of the classic ‘90s film Love Jones, these sumptuous six episodes offer a fresh look at several stunning queer women of color as they navigate their friendships, love lives, and artistic careers. Based on the award-winning romantic comedy A Luv Tale (Frameline23) from writer and creator Sidra Smith, this series continues the story and takes a contemporary, stylish glimpse at what it means to be a queer woman of color in the modern world with sharp humor and biting wit.
Directed by Kay Oyegun (NBC’s This Is Us), A Luv Tale: The Series features an impressive combination of new talent and familiar faces like Williams (TV’s Soul Food), Rotimi (Divergent, TV’s Power), and Leon (The Temptations, Cool Runnings). Armed with a banging soundtrack and featuring cameos like acclaimed producer Swizz Beatz, this show is the very definition of dope.
