Meagan Good Stars In New Comedy About Best Friends In Their Thirties Still Trying To Figure It Out

Roses in Harlem.

Celebrity News

Meagan Good is back on the small screen, but this time she's brought a fierce and fabulous posse to accompany her. Meagan will be starring in the Amazon Prime series Harlem, a comedy about four best girlfriends living in the "Black Mecca" and dealing with love, heartbreak, career challenges, and much more. The synopsis describes Meagan's character Camille as "a popular young anthropology professor at Columbia who has an extensive knowledge of the dating norms of many cultures, but has a hard time navigating her own love life."


Her girl gang includes Empire's Grace Byers who plays Quinn, Shoniqua Shandai who plays Angie, and Jerrie Johnson who plays Tye. There are also some exciting recurring roles such as Whoopi Goldberg, Jasmine Guy, and P-Valley heartthrob Tyler Lepley. The show is written and executive produced by Tracy Oliver, who is also the genius behind Girls Trip.

Tracy spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the show and said she wanted to "explore career stuff, but not necessarily in this overly aspirational way."

"With Megan Good's character, for example, Camille thought she was doing everything right. And then what we're doing with her in this season is that everything that she thought that you could script in life, that you could plan out perfectly and it was just going to go the way that you imagined it, all of it falls apart for her."

The inspiration for the show came when Tracy noticed that there weren't many shows on the air that were focused on Black female friendships. She also wanted to focus on a group of friends in their thirties to show that contrary to popular belief, many women in their thirties are still figuring it out much like women in their twenties.

"'...I'm in my thirties and I don't have everything together.' And I have so many friends that are still figuring themselves out too, or even starting over... And so I was kind of like, 'Well, let's be truthful about how the thirties doesn't necessarily mean that you have it all together.'"

Harlem premieres Dec. 3 on Amazon Prime.
