Adapted from Zakiya Dalila Harris’ bestselling novel of the same name, “The Other Black Girl” revolves around the eerie experiences of Nella Rogers, played by Sinclair Daniel. Nella is an editorial assistant working in a predominantly white New York City publishing house, where she feels manipulated and marginalized due to being the sole Black woman in her company.
Things take a mysterious turn when Hazel-May McCall (played by Ashleigh Murray) joins the company and occupies the cubicle behind Nella’s. At first, Nella is excited to have another Black woman at the workplace, hoping for solidarity and understanding. However, her excitement turns to paranoia as Hazel becomes the new favorite at Wagner Books, while Nella finds herself increasingly isolated.
The trailer offers a glimpse into Nella’s deteriorating mental state, with ghostly images haunting her computer screens and office hallways. The tension builds as she receives cryptic notes on her desk, urging her to leave the company immediately. As Nella’s sanity comes into question, viewers are left to wonder whether she’s truly being pursued by sinister forces or if her perceptions are unraveling.
The series boasts an ensemble cast, featuring Brittany Adebumola, Hunter Parrish, Bellamy Young, Eric McCormack, and Garcelle Beauvais. Executive produced by Rashida Jones, Adam Fishbach, Zakiya Dalila Harris, and others, the show promises a blend of psychological suspense and horror elements.
