More about Send Help:
ALLBLK, the popular streaming service for Black television and film from AMC Networks, announced its upcoming series, Send Help, the coming-of-age dark comedy series from actor, Jean Elie (Insecure, Colin in Black & White), and writer, Mike Gauyo (Insecure, Ginny & Georgia) is set to premiere Thursday, August 11.
This half-hour dramedy follows Fritz Jean-Baptiste(Jean Elie), a first-generation Haitian American actor who is on top of the world, since landing a starring role on fictional hit TV show, This Can’t Be Us…all while being the sole support system for his incredibly demanding Haitian family, reeling from a recent tragedy. Fritz is firing on all cylinders, until he receives a fateful call delivering the news of his shows’ cancellation. As Fritz struggles to conquer his feelings of imposter syndrome, the Hollywood community, and high maintenance family, he leans on his closest friends and confidantes…Patrick Cantave (Catfish Jean, Survivor’s Remorse), Nicole Cooper(Courtney Taylor, Insecure) and Sebastian “Simp” Gauyo (Amin Joseph, Snowfall), whose presence serves as a guide for Fritz, helping him navigate the difficult and often comical scenarios in his life. Now unemployed, will Fritz be able to keep his family afloat, while struggling to overcome the challenges of, once again, “making it” in Hollywood?
Additional cast includes Karina Bonnefil (Snowfall, David Makes Mann), Karen Obilom (Games People Play, upcoming House Party reboot) and Kimiko Singer (Emily the Criminal), and a fresh new face, Ana Bowen.

From the writer’s room, to the incredible cast, to everyone behind the scenes – we can’t wait to bring you along Fritz’s journey to figuring out how to get out of his own way.”
