Onyx Collective Sets ‘Queenie’ Premiere, Drops First-Look Photos

Onyx Collective has set the premiere of the original drama Queenie, based on the bestselling novel by Candice Carty-Williams, for June 7 on Hulu, with all episodes streaming at once.

The series follows Queenie Jenkins (Dionne Brown), a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in south London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. After a messy breakup with her long-term boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places and begins to realize she has to face the past head-on before she can rebuild.

The series also stars Samuel Adewunmi as Frank, and Bellah as Kyazike, marking the rising R&B singer’s acting debut.

From creator Carty-Williams, the eight-episode series is produced by Further South Productions in association with Lionsgate TV and will stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Channel 4 in the U.K. and the Republic of Ireland, Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ in all other territories.

Queenie is executive produced by Carty-Williams, who also serves as showrunner. Non-writing executive producers are Further South’s Steve November and Sarah Conroy, with Lisa Walters as co-executive producer and series producer.
