Free, lowkey viewing parties for the pilot of Brown Girls, a new show directed by Sam Bailey and written by Fatimah Asghar, will be taking place all over the country on February 15th. Join us for the Seattle showing at Vermillion! We’ll be live-streaming the show starting promptly at 6:00 pm.

Link to trailer:

(This trailer “introduces some of the shows leading characters, Leila, a South Asian-American writer who is seemingly trying to navigate her own sexual orientation; and her close friend Patricia, a black musician who is struggling financially, creatively, and romantically. In just a short period of time, the clip, which is guided by the sounds of Chicago native Jamila Woods, illustrates a fusion of both of the women’s backgrounds, while addressing themes of love and relationships, family and sexual orientation.”)

Unlike other series, Brown Girls is led by a crew of 95 percent women, people of color and/or women, according to director Sam Bailey. “When I was putting the crew together, I really focused on making sure that the people behind the camera represented the story they were telling in front of the camera,” Bailey said of handpicking the BG team. “We got on set every day and the energy was just different. You could feel it. Everyone was so invested. It was personal for them and I think that comes through in the final product.”

*Please be aware: this show contains adult content, including cursing, sexual situations, alcoholic consumptions, and mild nudity.
