We’re back at it again by bringing you another web series that gets the BFTC stamp of approval. With cold weather creeping up, that means the infamous “cuffing season” is upon us. Whether you’re partnered up, single or somewhere in between, check out this show that puts a hilarious spin on the ever-changing world of dating.
Build A Boo is a raunchy comedy about two best friends who can’t seem to find happiness. The quirky humor lies within their banter and support for one another as they have each other’s back throughout their romantic mishaps. Ava, the sassy lesbian and Taylor, the average Jane both are trying to figure out their hearts’ desires as the plot twists and turns while they’re wondering if they should be careful of what they wish for.
Produced by Michelle A. Daniels, the creative mind behind Between Women, this web series explores dynamics of the Black community and LGBT relationships, as well as gives audiences insight on how to gauge whether our relationships are actually healthy. In an interview with Tagg Nation, Daniels expresses that her biggest passion and commitment to creating film works is to magnify the importance of themes of love in art.
“We kind of get lost in the sauce…We have to learn how to live in [these] relationships. From there, I’ve realized there is a lot of hurt. There’s a lot of pain and insecurities. There’s a lot of ‘I don’t know how to love.'”
In the age of cyber dating, profile swiping and catfishing, it can sometimes be difficult to build an authentic connection with someone we hope to be “the one.” Shows like Build A Boo remind us that in order to find the right person for us, we have to take a step back to look at ourselves and see what kinds of love we’ve given and received from the universe. Join Ava and Taylor on their journey as they “try to fix their love lives with construction paper.” Season 1 is available to stream on YouTube via The DAMN TV channel.
