Adapted from the bestselling novel by Zakiya Dalila Harris, the series centered on Nella (played by Daniel), an editorial assistant tired of being the only black girl at the fiction publishing house Wagner Books. She was excited when Hazel (Riverdale Ashleigh Murray) was hired, but took a turn for the worse following a series of microaggressions that occurred just as Hazel’s star was beginning to rise.

Nella then discovered a sinister plot involving Hazel, who was revealed to be the recruiter for a secret cult led by Nelly’s book idol, Diana Gordon (Garcelle Beauvais), who used a special hair grease to wash the brains of black women so that they assimilate into white society.

The season finale – now serving as the series finale – saw Nelly attend a staff meeting with straightened hair instead of her natural afro, suggesting that she has assimilated. However, a subsequent phone call to Malaika resistance allies (The CW’s 4400 reboot veteran Brittany Adebumola) and Kendra Rae (Le Bel-Air April Parker Jones) alluded to the fact that Nella was working to bring down the organization from within.

The cast also included Hunter Parrish (Weeds) as Owen, Nella’s boyfriend Bellamy Young (Scandal) as editor of Nella, Vera and Eric McCormack (Will and grace) as company director, Richard Wagner.

All 10 episodes were released in large quantities on September 13.
