A Luv Tale: The Series
New York Premiere
Dir. Kay Oyegun, USA, 2018, 75 mins
Based on the 1999 award-winning film, writer and creator Sidra Smith’s A LUV TALE: THE SERIES brings us back to Harlem: a section of New York City vibrant with brilliant, black artists. When we meet Taylor, she has a magical one stand with an older woman named Candice, only to later discover Candice is (a) married to a man, and (b) her best friend’s mother. This tea-spilling romantic dramedy boats an all-star cast including Vanessa Williams (SOUL FOOD: THE SERIES, CANDYMAN), Leon (COOL RUNNINGS, THE TEMPTATIONS), Rotimi (POWER, BOSS), and Victor Williams (KING OF QUEENS, THE AFFAIR), and is the directorial debut of THIS IS US and QUEEN SUGAR writer Kay Oyegun.
