Robin Thede unveiled her long-awaited HBO series A Black Lady Sketch Show last week and critics agree she’s onto something incredible.
The creator, executive producer, show runner, and star of the series that features an all-star cast of hilarious performers including Gabrielle Dennis, Quinta Brunson, and Ashley Nicole Black sat down with theGrio to discuss her intentions for the show.
Aside from recruiting tons of A-list celebrity guest stars (Angela Bassett, Laverne Cox, Yvonne Orji) for the series co-executive produced by Issa Rae, Robin Thede has provided tons of reasons to tune in. Not only is the show hilarious and thought-provoking, it also represents Black women in ways we haven’t seen before.
