I'm a little late to the party on this, but . . . if you've ever been "one of the few" in your office/workplace, then you must watch Aasha Davis (Pariah) in the first three episodes of the web series, the Unwritten Rules, based on series creator Kim Williams' book 40 Hours and an Unwritten Rule: The Diary of a Nigger, Negro, Colored, Black, African-American Woman.

I'm a little late to the party on this, but . . . if you've ever been "one of the few" in your office/workplace, then you must watch Aasha Davis (Pariah) in the first three episodes of the web series, the Unwritten Rules, based on series creator Kim Williams' book 40 Hours and an Unwritten Rule: The Diary of a Nigger, Negro, Colored, Black, African-American Woman.

The Unwritten Rules is a funny and realistic series that will appeal to those of us who aren't necessarily the awkward ones at our jobs.  Writer/creator Williams describes it as a series which "examines the comedic realities of being an African-American in a predominantly white workplace."

Davis (who I absolutely loved as Bina in Pariah, which is now out on DVD, so go out and buy 10 copies) stars in the series' lead role as Racey Jones, sharing, “The series immediately made me laugh because, it reminded me of stories that my sister would tell me about working in corporate offices and in the same turn it made me nervous because it was exposing those type of stories I only felt comfortable enough to discuss with someone like my sister. I'm really attracted to stories like "the Unwritten Rules" because they inspire interesting and sometimes difficult conversations."

Also starring throughout the season are Balbinka, Nicole Fox, Sara Finley, David Lowe, Ebenezer Quaye, and Antonio Ramirez.

Check out episodes 1-3 of the Unwritten Rules.  A new episode airs every 1st Wednesday of the month HERE.
