Shadow and Act has an exclusive preview of this week episode of Millennials on AMC Networks’ ALLBLK streaming service.
In the episode, premiering Thursday, Jaheem’s so called black activist cousin Adrian, comes to town and begins to brainwash all the guys with his unethical beliefs during the duration of his visit; while Todd joins an experimental medical trial to make some fast money but it gives him bizarre side effects.
Watch the clip below:
The six-episode original sitcom premieres. The show is centered on the lives of four 20-something roommates and their neighbors who live across the hall. It documents the four millennials as they “navigate the chaos of being young and finding success, and themselves, in the city of angels.”
Millennials stars Kyle Massey of That’s So Raven as Omar, the straight-laced business student with dreams of becoming a corporate success. Omar urges his friends Jaheem (Keraun “King Keraun” Harris), a personal trainer, Travis (Philip Bolden, Are We There Yet?) an insecure YouTuber and college dropout Todd (Aaron Grady) to realize it’s time to grow up and get serious about their lives.
Each episode follows the friends’ mischief and it becomes clear that none of them have it all together. Their hardworking neighbor Mercedes (Teresa “Topnotch” Celeste) is an aspiring actress from Atlanta who brings balance to the boys’ menacing ways.
The series also features Tanjareen Thomas, comedian Buddy Lewis (Big Stan, Black Dynamite) and Katherine Florence.
Millennials is created by Rugg Williams and Oren Williams. Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show) serves as director and executive producer.
