With our television screens overrun with scripted “reality” show drama which make Black folks look more like caricatures than real people, whenever I come across a film or a show that depicts us as complex individuals I want to share it.

Like “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl,” “12 Steps to Recovery,” and my latest obsession, the British cop drama “Luther,” well-written and well-acted shows featuring Black characters are a treat.

Recently, I was hipped to the show, “The Break Up Series.” Created by filmmaker Dui Jarrod, “The Break Up Series” follows couples as their relationships are unraveling. The first episode in the series, “Lights, Camera, Action” shows what happens when couples try to keep secrets from one another.

I’ll be sharing an episode of “The Break Up Series” each Friday, so stay tuned and tell us what you think!
