This comedic drama with a dystopian technology twist shines a light on an underrepresented group: LGBTQ professional athletes navigating the homophobic sports world. The show was created by Philip Johnson, and inspired by his experience growing up as a closeted gay track athlete.
From its Modern Family-level of undeniable humor with a majority-black cast, to its Black Mirror-level of fictional+dystopian technology, to its one-of-a-kind incorporation of Professional Track & Field, Flip Flop will entertain & impact global communities. Flip Flop will be funny/entertaining as hell. After all, have you seen Philaye Films' 1st YouTube web-series: Black Sex & The City ?
