Amazon Studios and Universal Television have released new first look images from their new show Harlem. The show is created, written, and executive produced by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip, Barbershop: The Next Cut), and revolves around four best friends that live in Harlem, New York City, as they move into a new phase of their careers, relationships, and big-city dreams. The first season of Harlem, which consists of 10 episodes, will premiere December 3 exclusively on Prime Video.
Harlem will star Meagan Good (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Venom) as Camille, Grace Byers (Empire, The Gifted) as Quinn, Shoniqua Shandai (Sing It!, I Am the Night) as Angie, Jerrie Johnson (Good Trouble, Mother’s Milk) as Tye, and Tyler LePley (The Haves and the Have Nots, Slumber Party Slaughter) as Ian. The first-look photos, courtesy of Prime Video, show the core four friends hanging out in two places that look like restaurants/bars and watching a movie together, all while having a good time.
Joining the main cast will be recurring guest stars including Jasmine Guy (The Cosby Show, A Different World) as Patricia, Whoopi Goldberg (Sister Act, Star Trek: The Next Generation) as Dr. Elise Pruitt, Andrea Martin (Black Christmas, My Big Fat Greek Wedding) as Robin, Robert Ri’chard (Cousin Skeeter, One on One) as Shawn, Juani Feliz (The Polka King, Blue Bloods) as Isabela, Kate Rockwell (High Maintenance, Deadbeat) as Ana, and Sullivan Jones (Halston, The Gilded Age) as Jameson.
Harlem is produced by Amazon Studios and Universal Television, a division of Universal studio Group, in association with Paper Kite Productions. In addition to Oliver, Amy Poehler (Russian Doll) and Kim Lessing (Moxie) also serve as executive producers alongside Dave Becky (True Story), Pharrell Williams (Hidden Figures), and Mimi Valdés (Roxanne Roxanne). Malcolm D. Lee (Girls Trip) directed the first two episodes.
