Bounce TV is developing the original series Finding Happy, starring B. Simone, Kim Coles, Marketta Patrice, Angela Gibbs, Stevie Baggs Jr., and Mike Merrill.
The dramatic-comedy is written, produced, directed by, and stars Black women, the network said Thursday.
Here’s the official description: “Finding Happy is a dramedy following the Black female experience through the unfulfilled life of Yaz Carter (B. Simone), beginning with her unhappy 36th birthday. The 10-episode debut season features Yaz’s loving-but-complicated family, her stagnant career in the evolving landscape of radio, and a merry-go-round of unrequited love while dating in the love desert of Atlanta.”
