*The scripted digital drama series, “Milk + Honey,” featuring Debbie Allen, Lance Gross, Boris Kodjoe and Faune Chambers; returns this month on Issa Rae’s YouTube channel with brand new episodes.

The series stars Yaani King Mondschein (“Saving Grace,” “Mad Men”) and new-comers Asha Kamali and Alex Lavelanet, and follows the professional and romantic journeys of four ambitious, Black women as they navigate through the lights, smoke, and mirrors of Hollywood. The series chronicles the trials and triumphs of chasing a dream: challenging each character to confront tough choices between love, work, and passion while on their paths to the promise land of milk and honey.

The series was originally created and released in 2010 amid Hollywood’s mounting diversity crisis. EUR/Electronic Urban Report covered the debut of the series’ first two episodes.
