Hilarious New Series, ‘African Booty Scratcher,’ Basically Sums Up the Immigrant Experience

We can't WAIT for this new show!

Damilare Sonoiki, one of the writers of ABC’s hit show, Black-ish, wants to bring us a new comedy series about a Nigerian-immigrant family, Tunde and Ann, and their struggle to balance the pursuit of a better life for their son, Ayo, all while maintaining their traditional values and cultural identity.

African Booty Scratcher aims to look beyond stereotypes to explore a universally relatable immigrant story: how your friends mispronounce your name, the way the neighbors politely dissect your mom’s cooking, having to explain to your classmates why a B+ is unacceptable.
See if you don’t get a side cramp from watching the teaser video!
