Finally it’s out!!! I am very proud and honored to feature the 1 st episode of Latasha’s comedy web series “SIT BLACK AND RELAX”. Creative, generous, and BLACKALICIOUS are just few words to describe Latasha. In 201o, she created Dope files where she landed interviews with celebrities such a Pharrell Williams, Trey songz and many more… We both kinda met at a very interesting time in our lives. She was ending Dope files and was kind of soul searching while I was expecting getting a position that I really wanted at a TV station that finally never came through. She encouraged me to do my own thing and go for what I wanted and believed, which I did ! At that particular time I needed to hear this from someone like me! THANK YOU LATASHA…! She had told me she wanted to do something that had a purpose…Few months later, her interest for Black art and activism grew and she released “This week in racism” very interesting and insightful videos, where she makes racism funny
we know it ain’t , while sharing her opinion and dropping knowlegde about racism.
Sit Black & Relax is JustLatasha’s first scripted work. It’s a comedy web series about a passive and gawky Black woman named Maya, who continuously bumps into white conundrums while living her NYC life. The show takes inspirations of Comedy Central’s “Broad City” & FX’s “Louie”. Maya is a slightly-failing jewelry designer who works full time in a nanny-matching service to pay the bills. She manages her dating life and personal qualms with the advisory of her best friend named Lana, who is white.
Latasha wrote and directed the series as an ode to the normal life young Black women live, as an effort to dismantle the narrow stereotypes often provided by Hollywood.
An episode will be out every 1st monday of the month! Can’t wait! I hope you’ll enjoy the episode as I much as I did!
Now it’s time to SIT BLACK AND RELAX!
