With true-to-life comedic beats, Dreaming Whilst Black is adapted from the hugely popular web series co-written by Adjani Salmon and Ali Hughes.

Loosely inspired by real life events, Dreaming Whilst Black follows aspiring filmmaker Kwabena in and out of reality as he tries to make it in Babylon. With the echoes of his family's disappointment at his chosen career in his ears and a complicated personal life to navigate, can Kwabena scale all of the hurdles laid out in front of him to get his script commissioned?

Co-creator, writer and star of Dreaming Whilst Black Adjani Salmon says: "After such a phenomenal response to the web series, where we found an audience who really connected to Kwabena's journey, I'm happy we've made our show for TV. I'm excited to share this story with our earliest and new audiences alike."
