Indiegogo Campaign Launched for SQUAD, a Melanated Comedy Series

Comedy Series’ Indiegogo Campaign to Launch in the Fall.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada (November 13, 2017) — Press Pillay, a boutique digital communications agency, announced today the launch of an Indiegogo campaign for its client SQÚAD.

SQÚAD, a web comedy series which surrounds women in the African diaspora, is setting out to raise $40,000 on Indiegogo to finish its development. The campaign launched October 9, 2017 and is ongoing.

SQÚAD will feature the trials and tribulations of five women living in Brazil, a country known for having the second-highest population of Black people outside of Africa. Viewers will follow raw and authentic journeys as the women navigate love, sex, sisterhood, body image, mental health and more from a distinctly non-American perspective.

“Conversations about Blackness in pop culture typically surround the African-American experience, completely disregarding Black voices in other countries,” said Helena Morgane, SQÚAD’s creator. “With SQÚAD the stories include the voices we rarely hear from – particularly those in Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and Latin America. I want to offer a space that challenges our similarities and differences within the diaspora.”

“We are tired of being reduced to stereotypes and token characters in mainstream TV and film,” said Sophie Duker, SQÚAD’s co-writer. “SQÚAD allows us to create space for ourselves, while advocating for more inclusivity in the film and television industry.”

SQÚAD’s Indiegogo campaign starts on October 9 and donors can sign up for a newsletter, watch the series’ trailer, receive behind-the-scenes tidbits and follow it on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (@sqdcomedyseries). To donate, go to https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/squad-a-melanated-comedy-series/coming_soon.
