Once upon a time, there was a moment when all my social media feeds were not filled with baby pictures and engagement photos. I can now watch my elementary school friends take their children to elementary school. When did everyone become adults? ALL MY FRIENDS ARE MARRIED is a quirky comedic web-series with a blend of dry and physical humor. It highlights the joys and pitfalls of being single & living in New York City. With joy and irony we present the story of a woman struggling to survive adulthood from her very imaginative point of view.
The Black TV & Film Collective presents its first web series offering, “All My Friends Are Married”. The series premieres April 25, 2016.
Take a look at the original concept video that got the series going:
She has found who she is in being a storyteller and hopes to leave her mark through creating a community of collaborators seeking to tell impactful stories that increase grace and love for all people. And laugh a bunch while doing it. She is a graduate from Tisch School of the Arts with a double major in film production and dramatic writing.
Ekwa has directed for some of the biggest TV shows in East Africa including The Agency (MNET) a 13-part TV series which she created, show-ran, and directed; the hit show Block-D (KBC), and most recently co-created critically acclaimed Higher Learning (NTV) along with several short films. She’s written for TV and film, and produced several shorts. Weakness, a short film she recently produced, has screened worldwide, including New York, Durban and Brazil and was nominated for a 2010 Kalasha Award and a 2011 African Movie Academy Award. Most recently she wrote, directed and produced Taharuki (Suspense), a fictional short film addressing child trafficking, set against the backdrop of the devastating post-election violence which took place in Kenya in 2007/2008. The sequel film Sweet Justice is currently in development through the Babylon International 2011 program and will be shot on location in Kenya.
ANDREA COLEMAN (Lead Actress):
Andrea has performed in Off Broadway productions, short films and regional theater in the Northeast. Andrea has studied with the Upright Citizens Brigade and performed with the Manhattan Repertory Theatre. Last summer, she has written, directed and starred in a short film that was screened at Lincoln Center. Andrea’s comic timing and experience makes her the perfect match for All My Friends Are Married.
