Famous Farrah
"Sometimes the only key to happiness is to spit 8 bars."

Directed by Talibah Newman, who directed the HBO-acquired the lauded short Busted on Brigham Lane, the comedic Famous Farrah centers of Farrah Satrapi, a young woman who is bored of her job at a medical lab and who takes up rapping to spice up her life. The series' teaser was featured at the Brown, Black & Digital event held at MIST (My Image Studios) in Harlem on May 15th.
 

FAMOUS FARRAH is a clever, but not too cool, daffy, but not slapstick spoof on the hip-hop game. As her 26th birthday approaches, Farrah Satrapi (Kathreen Khavari) realizes that she's bored with her monotonous, sterile life in the lab. After John (Mike Ivers), her Wall St. big-shot fiancé, forgets her birthday, Farrah’s wannabe socialite sister Ava (Giselle Vázquez) takes her out for the celebration she deserves. During their night out on the town, Farrah has a chance encounter with The Cake Boys -- a floundering rap group looking for a gimmick to put them on the map. After meeting Farrah, crew leaders Mac Illa (Lamar Cheston) and Greg Greasy (Eden Marryshow) are convinced that once they make her their “Fergie," they're bound to take over the game. Deciding she needs a little spice in her life, Farrah accepts the offer and the comedy ensues. "The Famous Farrah team hopes to bring a fresh meaning to the idea of career change and transformation with the new comedy series," says director Talibah Newman.

Famous Farrah was written/created by Chuck Neal. Follow the webseries on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/FamousFarrah and/or Twitter @FamousFarrah.
