Andrea Lewis is also one of the creators/producers of the show. Her resume includes popular series like Degrassi: The Next Generation and Black Actress. In a recent statement, she commented that this production is one of her “dream projects.” Lewis remarked, “As someone who grew up in the television and film industry, I’ve sat in more makeup chairs than I can count, and I have experienced the good, the bad, and the ugly of what it’s like being a Black woman and navigating the beauty space. I’ve always wanted to create a story that captured the fullness of our impact in the beauty industry.”
