TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 87m
SECTION: Episodic

A deeply satisfying display of female comradery, desire, heartache, and joy is at the center of this tart and refreshingly subversive Brooklyn episodic two-for-one! 

Ruthless, relentless, and uncertified, BKPI is the private investigation crew of your dreams. Mo, a lesbian Korean American health aide, Dawn, an African American MTA worker, and Iram, an Arab American bodega owner, form BKPI to solve crimes for their immigrant neighbors in Brooklyn. From tracking and shaming the neighborhood flasher, to side-eyeing and shading clueless neighborhood gentrifiers, no criminal behavior is too tough for the crew to tackle. Give BKPI a call, and consider your case handled!

A lesbian couple in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, is forced by lust and circumstance to face difficult truths about their polyamorous relationship, in the sexy, sharp, dramedy 195 Lewis, Season 1. Kris, newly arrived to the city, crashes at Yuri and Camille’s apartment, instantly causing tension between the couple. Anne, Camille’s sister and housemate, tells everyone she’s busy making music, but she’s really busy making a pass at every fine woman she sees. 195 Lewis is an intimate look at an interconnected group of lovers, family, and friends who are committed to radical, unabashed honesty. Layered storylines unfurl amidst scenes of lush parties, late-night hair braiding, and a nightmare sequence where warning smoke billows from genitals. Most importantly, this series poses a question we all want answers to: “How you gonna holla at someone with a bonnet on?”
