NEWS PROVIDED BY
À La Carte, the new dramedy from Breanna Hogan, Dijon Talton and Meagan Good recently greenlit at ALLBLK, today announced the principal cast for its 6-episode debut season. Pauline Dyer (A Stone Cold Christmas), Jessie Woo (Wild N’ Out), Kendall Kyndall (Games People Play), Jenna Nolen and Courtney Burrell (Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home) will lead the cast of the scripted series centered on the Black millennial dating experience and a 20-something overachiever’s journey to adapting her dating deal breakers.
Dyer stars as Mahogany Rose, a gorgeous, young go-getter who is the epitome of perfection. The type who usually makes the right decisions, Mahogany has always had somewhat of a whimsical idea of how her love life would turn out. But when she meets Kaleb Myles (Courtney Burrell), a charming and charismatic man who checks off nearly all her boxes, she’s forced to reconsider her typical standards as she discovers that he falls short of a critical characteristic on her list – being single.
Mahogany’s friend circle keeps her on her toes while helping her navigate her newfound situation-ship. Misha Taylor (Jessie Woo) is a bold and liberal jokester who lives her life out loud in every way. Inside the classroom, Misha is the perfect 2nd grade teacher but outside of work walls, Misha owns her own voice and puts her sass on display. Reign Moore (Kendall Kyndall) is a Calabasas, CA native who serves as the moral compass of the friend group. Cut off from his privileged lifestyle by his father, Reign considers making some questionable decisions for money. Shyra Clemons (Jenna Nolen) is a traditional southern belle with southern views and morals to match. An Animation and Digital Arts graduate student, Shyra is Mahogany’s roommate and longest friend.
À La Carte is directed and executive produced by Dijon Talton and The Talton Company. Breanna Hogan and Meagan Good serve as executive producers on the series. Katrina Y. Nelson (ALLBLK’s Lace) and Christopher O’Conner serve as co-executive producers – the latter in association with Prodigy Arts Entertainment. Angela White serves as producer.
