In our Q&A series Last Call, we get down to the bottom of every last thing with some of our favorite celebs — from the last time they were starstruck to the last song they listened to. This week, Meagan Good takes our call.
Take it from us: Meagan Good’s upcoming series is about to become your new favorite show. From the mind of Tracy Oliver comes Harlem, a 10-episode series that follows a group of four girlfriends navigating life and love in their 30s in New York. According to Meagan, “it’s incredibly inappropriate, but in the most amazing way . . . it’s very honest, but also fun and very vulnerable.”
The show, new from Prime Video, is being described as a cross between Girlfriends, Living Single, and Sex and the City, and it stars Meagan, alongside Grace Byers, Shoniqua Shandai, and Jerrie Johnson. Meagan plays Camille, an ambitious professor who is still hung up on her ex, Ian (Tyler Lepley). “I immediately fell in love with Camille mainly because she’s just so quirky and honest, even when she’s trying to hide and trying to play it off,” Meagan told POPSUGAR. “There’s still an honesty and a purity to her, but she’s also very much of a grown-ass woman who is pursuing her career, smart, intelligent, and all these things.”
Regardless of whether or not you live in New York, Meagan hopes that viewers are able to relate to the dynamic characters and that the show offers them a sense of comfort. “I mainly hope that [people] see themselves and they realize that they’re not crazy and they’re just figuring it out and that’s OK,” Meagan said. “What’s amazing and beautiful about life is that we don’t have all the answers and sometimes we just have to be present and figure it out and experience it. And it’s not about the destination, it really is about the journey and the experience. And I hope that people have fun. I hope that they laugh. I hope that they see their best friends in it and people that are in their lives. And I just hope that they relate to it and feel seen.”
Harlem premieres on Prime Video on Dec. 3. Read the rest of Meagan’s Last Call interview ahead.
With a group of women, especially when they’re all leads, you don’t know what you’re always going to get. What I got were some really beautiful, humble spirits that have become my sisters. So the last day was emotional. I said my speech, thanked everybody, and told them how much I love them and appreciate this experience and this moment in life . . . these are days in your life that you never get back and you want to make sure that they’re rich and spent with people that you want to spend them with. That is what this experience has been.
