“I’ve been to Chicago, ATL, D.C., even L.A, and all the other abbreviated cities—they all got pee in the pool. I got standards!”
À La Carte showcases the misadventures of the Black millennial dating experience and it’s filled with dramedy [drama and comedy] that makes for an exhilarating ride. Viewers will meet 25-year-old Mahogany (Pauline Dyer, A Stone Cold Christmas) who ﬁnally lands the man of her dreams, Kaleb (Courtney Burrell, Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home), but there’s just one problem; he has a girlfriend.
With the help of her friends, Misha Taylor (Jessie Woo, Wild ‘N Out), a teacher who works hard and plays even harder; Reign Moore (Kendall Kyndall, Social Society, Games People Play), a recently cut off trust-funder forced to find alternative revenue to pay the bills and Shyra Clemons (Jenna Nolen), a grad student who believes she has found the perfect man; Mahogany must decide if she will stick to her preference of being the one and only – or step out of her comfort zone and learn to play number two.
À La Carte Exclusive Clip
In an exclusive clip for the series premiering only on BOSSIP, we see Mahogany having a night out with Misha, Reign, and Shyra. While Mahogany is adamant that she wants more than a hookup, her homegirl Misha tells her to loosen up.
“Girl, f*** your standards! You need some d***!” says Misha candidly while noting that her friend has been getting extra friendly with some popsicles while eating them.
Mahogany counters saying that she has standards.
“I’ll stick to old-fashioned dating—thank you very much!” replies Mahogany.
“Yeah, cause that’s been working out great for you,” sarcastically replies Misha.
Ooop! Now, why’d Misha have to say all that?!
