The popular web series “Black and Sexy TV’s: The Couple” is helping to fill the gap that television and film has left behind–the African-American love story. It follows a contemporary Black couple as they make the difficult transition from dating to living with each other. Watching the daily adventures of this funny and realistic couple makes you look at yourself and say “I can relate to what they’re going through.”
Dennis Dortch and Numa Perrier are the creators behind “Black and Sexy TV” and the movie “A Good Day To Be Black and Sexy.” They find inspiration for their work from their own real life encounters as a couple. In their interview with Clutch Magazine, Numa Perrier mentions “we all experience relationships so not only is it relatable but it drives us as human beings.”
As a fan of the series, it’s refreshing to be able to watch characters and story lines that you can relate to. Seeing African-American characters in relationships and expressing love to one another is not a message that’s being generated by today’s Hollywood. The web is challenging that status quo by creating video content that speaks to different audiences.
In this episode of “The Couple: Laid Up” the female lead character, played by Numa Perrier herself, is forced to take care of her man, played by Desmond Faison after an injury. Would you take care of your partner if they got injured?
