New York, NY – April 19, 2022 – Today, ALLBLK, the popular streaming service for Black TV and film from AMC Networks, released the trailer for the new millennial dating dramedy, À La Carte. The 6-episode scripted series premiering Thursday, May 12, 2022 from Breanna Hogan and executive producers, Meagan Good (Harlem) and Dijon Talton (Glee), centers on the Black millennial dating experience and one girl’s journey to the place she never thought she’d end up – on the side.
À La Carte follows Mahogany Rose (Pauline Dyer, A Stone Cold Christmas), a gorgeous, young go-getter and overachiever who has had high moral standards her entire life. Mahogany has always had somewhat of a whimsical idea of how her love life would turn out. But when she meets Kaleb Myles (Courtney Burrell, Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home), a charming and charismatic man who checks off nearly all her boxes, she’s forced to reconsider her typical standards as she discovers that he falls short of a critical characteristic on her list – being single. With the help of her friends, Misha Taylor (Jessie Woo, Wild ‘N Out), a teacher who works hard and plays even harder; Reign Moore (Kendall Kyndall, Social Society, Games People Play), a recently cut off trust-funder forced to find alternative revenue to pay the bills and Shyra Clemons (Jenna Nolen), a grad student who believes she has found the perfect man; Mahogany must decide if she will stick to her preference of being the one and only – or step out of her comfort zone and learn to play number two.
Additional cast includes Kandi Burruss (Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Chi), Robinne Lee (Being Mary Jane, Fifty Shades of Grey films), Grammy-nominated singer Kelly Price, Dorien Wilson (The Parkers), Nazanin Mandi (Twenties), Daniel Augustin (How I Met Your Father), Mike Merrill (All American), Juan Gil (A Second Thought), and Xavier Avila (Pretty Dudes).
À La Carte is directed and executive produced by Dijon Talton and The Talton Company. Breanna Hogan and Meagan Good serve as executive producers on the series; as well as Katrina Y. Nelson (ALLBLK’s Lace) for The Talton Company and Christopher O’Conner in association with Prodigi Arts Entertainment. Angela White serves as producer.
