Dear Jesus

Genre: situational comedy

Written and directed by Danielle A Scott-Haughton

Starring: Linda Adey, Leonie Haynes-Moses & Samantha Earle

What is it about: Woman loses her job on the same day she discovers her live-in boyfriend in bed with her best friend and now must move back home with her mother and work with her at her Jamaican takeout spot.

What makes this smart: If you can get passed the low budget production value of this series, you will discover a very clever take on the not-so-perfect relationship some believers have with the man or woman upstairs – yes, I’m talking about God. Also did I mention it is from the UK and revolves a young Black woman and her family, who hailed originally from the Caribbean? This is the kind of diversity of the Black experience we need to see more of on the big and small screens.
