Series info and storyline
On September 28, 2016 new scripted comedy Broke series has kicked off exclusively on YouTube Red, YouTube’s paid subscription streaming service. The series hails from BuzzFeed and was created by and stars Quinta Brunson (BuzzFeed Motion Pictures development partner and producer), Paul Dupree and Maurice Williams. It is written by Brunson, Garrick Bernard and Kate Peterman, executive produced by Brunson, Matthew Henick and Jared Sosa, and directed by Sosa and Adam Bianchi. There are eleven episodes in the first season.
Broke features three twenty-something cash-strapped best buddies and roommates recently out of college, with great hopes for the future – while the premise is typical, the characters and the execution is far from banal. Quinta Brunson and BuzzFeed YouTube channel are already reaching millions of fans, and the show is a worthwhile addition to the slate. Miloh, Brunson’s character in the series, is mostly autobiographical, and Brunson has toyed with the idea for the show for quite a while.
Reception and renewal prospects
Broke is another welcome installment in a wave of black sitcoms gaining popularity on various networks, such as ABC’s black-ish, NBC’s The Carmichaels and the new HBO series Insecure. The show is praised for the refreshing lack of focus on romantic relationships, the absence of black stereotypes and macho acts, and realistic characters. Brunson’s first attempt at a longer narrative than what she was used to while writing comedy content for Buzzfeed seems to be a success, considering the excellent social media response. We are very likely to see another season of Broke in the future, so please stay tuned, and we will inform you when an announcement is made.
