It’s a show that is inspired by the life of former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles. It focuses on the lives of three young women who work with the magazine.
Some character descriptions, without too many spoilers (written by me so I apologize for any grammar/writing mistakes)
There’s Kat, a black woman who is struggling with her sexual identity. Struggling might not be the right word since her experience is very positive and you can see she’s happy to explore. Her friends are extremely supportive. Kat is the social media expert for the magazine.
Sutton is someone who is very driven and goes after what she wants. She is an assistent, but dreams of going into fashion and works for it.
Jane is an aspiring writer. She’s sometimes unsure of herself, but with the help of her friends and her boss, she gets through most of her obstacles.
Adena is a recurring character. She describes herself as a ‘proud muslim lesbian’ and I think that’s a perfect description, even though there’s more to her character than that. She’s an artist and develops a close relationship with Kat.
Jacqueline is the editor-in-chief at the magazine. Unlike most female bosses portrayed on TV, she’s very supportive of her employees and helps them out if needed. She makes sure she talks to anyone in need and is just really awesome tbh.
Anyway, watch this show. It’s not perfect, there are mistakes, but it’s only 4 episodes so far and there is so much room for growth. We get to see three women navigate life in a different way, and we get to see a relationship between a bi/pan woman and a lesbian woman develop (and it’s really adorable and sweet).
You can watch it on Freeform on Tuesdays, on Hulu (I think) or on the Freeform website. If you’re outside of Europe, you can find it on websites like watchseries and projectfreetv.
Please support this show as much as you can. It would be a shame to only get one season of a show that is fun to watch, even when it tackles some serious issues.
In response to @wearethefandomsthatwaited‘s request in reply to my previous post, here is the little blurb and photo of Colin Morgan from the alumni news section in the Oct/Nov/Dec 2007 issue of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama’s Academy magazine. The photo may be from RSAMD’s 2006 production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle, but I can’t swear to that.
