In the introduction of her latest promotional video, Issa Rae and the production crew behind the ABG quotes, “Television has a very limited scope and range in its depictions of people of color. We want to change that.”
The Press Junkie concurs.
If you haven’t already caught wind of ABG – The Misadventures of the Awkward Black Girl, then you have truly missed out on a treat. Everything that television fabricates, Issa’s character “J” reflects just the opposite, showing the seemingly average side that lies in us all. Everyday situations become windows to our own lives and J and the rest of the cast gives you a dose of laughter and balance.
Here’s a interview with the entire cast + Episode 6: “The Stapler”. Unable to properly deal with her personal frustration in the workplace, J is sent to anger management.
