Recently, we heard that Keke "Keep a Job" Palmer launched her digital network KeyTV. Today, xoNecole has the exclusive first look at the first series on KeyTV, Heaux & Tell.

Written and created by Nakia Stephens and executive produced and developed by Keke, "Heaux and Tell follows the misadventures of three best friends who dive headfirst into provocative and ridiculous new experiences. A 7-episode scripted show featuring a BIPOC cast of talent and behind-the-scenes creators who helped bring it to life, the series offers this generation a real take on sex, sexuality, and sisterhood."

"KeyTV is about bringing new perspectives to the table and platforming creators who have something to say," Keke tells xoNecole of why she chose Heaux & Tell. "Overall, I want the network to deliver content that is relatable to our generation with characters you feel like you know, and Heaux & Tell, our first scripted series, delivers on that and more. The series takes the audience on a wild & seriously unexpected ride through the eyes of three Black women and best friends who don't always have it together in their relationships, at work, or even with each other but are doing the best they can. It's a show that I'd watch with my friends because it's about real characters dealing with their problems, their wins, and their lovers in real-time – and having some real good messy fun along the way."

The 26-year-old actor is beginning to see the fruits of his labor and so it’s hard to imagine that he almost went in a different direction.
