ABOUT THE POTTY BREAK SERIES: On the surface, Potty Break looks like the adventures of two "loose" party girls and their escapades in the bathroom at their favorite nightclub. Beneath the surface, you have two broken women who struggle to be OK and are not dealing with their pain in a healthy way. Women who are typically discarded because of their appearance or lifestyle. Each episode has a drop of social commentary and explores topics that are usually hard to digest such as colorism, identity crisis and sexuality through the eyes of two women conversing in a bathroom in a humorous way. The two women who haven't quite acquired the wisdom that comes with age, similar to Sex In The City. Season 1 serves as a "slice of life" look into the complicated lives of these two aging party girls. Like Insecure, it's a comedy, but deeper.
Imagine I LOVE LUCY, set in Harlem. A Black American and a Black Brit who are in "survival mode".
