A modern day “Love Jones” documenting the milestones of dating as childhood friends, as Robin and Charles fall in love one first at a time.

Starting in 2014 as a digital series on Issa Rae’s Youtube Channel, FIRST answered the deep call for Black people to see themselves represented on the small screen. The series hit a chord with young Black audiences because it was one of the first web series to represent Black people in a positive way. It has garnered over 7 million views and has now been made into a movie.
