The Urban Movie Channel is collaborating with Insecure star Jay Ellis on the premiere of his latest project, Hard Medicine.
Produced by Ellis alongside producing partner Paula Bryant-Ellis, the series is a workplace comedy created by Melissa Eno Effa in the vein of Scrubs and The Office. Comprised of eight 10-12-minute episodes, the show centres around a quirky medical doctor of a low-income health clinic who must manoeuvre between demanding corporate heads, outlandish patients and her wacky but loyal staff, all in an effort to keep the community’s haven of healthcare afloat.
“I’m thrilled to be working on another project with Angela [Northington] and her team at UMC after the release of Like Cotton Twines earlier this year,” said Ellis. “The world and characters Melissa Eno Effa has created with Hard Medicine are unique, authentic, lovable and relatable. Sharing this journey with her has made this one of my favourite projects I’ve had the opportunity to produce. We are so thankful to have UMC as the home for this new project and to share it with a larger audience.”
