Sound the air horn! HBO picked up Brown Girls, a web series about a writer and a musician who are best friends and their messy lives. Leila (Nabila Hossain) is loosely based on creator and writer Fatimah Ashgar’s life as she comes to terms with coming out to her family, while her best friend Patricia (Sonia Denis) decides to pursue her dreams of music. Brown Girls feels so beautifully familiar, with a cast full of hilarious and warm womenof-color characters. The series doesn’t shy away from real-life gross-out humor or quiet, touching moments between family and friends, giving us conversations about copious body fluids in one scene and tenderness between Leila and her sister as Leila comes out to her in another. We haven’t seen ourselves so gorgeously reflected back at us, and I’m so grateful that this is the show to do it. Finally, a show about girls on HBO that I’ll actually watch.
