A neurotic work-study student and her two best friends navigate the campus recreation center’s employee culture, college academia and their impending trek into the real world.

[Pilot Synopsis]: PETEY MCDADE is the big woman on campus—at least, the Rec Center. She takes great pride in her work-study position: Group Exercise Door Monitor. When Petey’s supervisor (LINDA) asks her to train the new hire, she dutifully agrees. But that’s before she realizes the new trainee is RYAN, a former friend and lover. Ryan hopes to squash the bad blood between them. Still, Petey is hard-pressed to let it go. But when the two are locked in the judo studio, they are forced to work together in order to free themselves. Meanwhile, Petey’s best friend, LEYA, dodges managers to prepare an assignment during her shift.

[Concept]: Best described as "Parks and Recreation" meets "Girlfriends"—with a splash of "Broad City’s" offbeat, irreverent humor. This is a semi-autobiographical examination of an unsung aspect of college life, through the eyes of three young black women. As black women have recently been named the most educated group in the United States, this story illuminates some of the tribulations that come with that title.

I'm a writer. I'm a producer. I'm a thinker, dreamer, rebel. But most of all? I'm happy that the word-count minimum for these bios has been reduced. I would like to hope the work speaks for itself. I've been doing this for a long time and I've come to realize that at the end of the day, personal platitudes mean very little when showcasing your work. People only want to know your life's story after you get the greenlight. Go to bio
