Sexy actor (and as i'll call him my fellow Ghanaian and East Londoner Hackney hood "brutha") Idris Elba has dipped his hand in the Executive Producing bucket. "Milk + Honey" is a dramedy series for the web and TV, which focuses on the spiritual, professional, and romantic journeys of four young ambitious YBF women navigating through the lights, smoke, and mirrors of Hollywood. The women experience a journey all of us can relate to.
.
About the series, Idris says:
.
“I decided to get involved with Milk + Honey because of the strong demand for content that is relatable and authentic,” states Elba about his involvement with the project.

“Brown Paper Dolls has an intuitive way of displaying positive images of women throughout the series.”
.
The series stars Lance Gross (Our Family Wedding, "House of Payne"), Faune Chambers (Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Bryce Wilson (Beauty Shop), veteran actress Debbie Allen and introduces Asha Kamali. Also newcomers Yaani King, Shauntay Hinton, Charles Divins, and Rob Smith.
.
Idris and the Brown Paper Dolls company (Chicagoans and Spelman, Howard U & FAMU grads Dana Gills, Asha Kamali May, and Jeanette McDuffie) have been working on this series for over 3 years. It was created to showcase diverse images of women of color that are rarely seen on the big or small screen,and also to create more opportunities for black actors.
.
The "Milk + Honey" scripted series will soon be seen on all platforms soon and is looking to get picked up by a tv network. (Personally I hope its not BET cos i cant stand BET - anybody else but bootyshaking entertainment tv.)
