Hulu Sets Premiere Date for “Black Cake” Starring Mia Isaac, Adrienne Warren, and More

Hulu has officially announced the premiere date for its highly anticipated drama series, “Black Cake.” The show is scheduled to debut on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, with the release of the first three episodes. Subsequent episodes will follow on a weekly basis, airing every Wednesday until December 6, 2023.

“Black Cake” is adapted from the best-selling novel by Charmaine Wilkerson and combines family drama with a compelling murder mystery. The series boasts an impressive cast, including Mia Isaac, Adrienne Warren, Chipo Chung, Ashley Thomas, Lashay Anderson, Faith Alabi, and Glynn Turman in recurring roles.

Developed by Marissa Jo Cerar, the show is produced by Harpo Films and Kapital Entertainment. The storyline spans multiple locations, including Jamaica, Italy, Scotland, England, and Southern California, offering viewers a rich and diverse narrative experience.

The story unfolds with the disappearance of Covey (played by Mia Isaac), a biracial teenager, in the late 1960s Jamaica. Covey, a star swimmer in her community, aspires to use her talents to swim around the world, but her dreams are jeopardized by her overprotective father’s interference. Covey faces a challenging decision that shapes the course of her life, leading to unforeseen consequences.

Joel Kinnaman plays Byron Bennett, a brilliant ocean scientist and social media influencer who must reconcile with his estranged sister, Benny (played by Adrienne Warren), following their mother’s death. Byron’s dedication to his mother’s final wish sets the stage for a powerful reunion and the revelation of long-held secrets.

Glynn Turman portrays Charles Mitch, a successful lawyer in Newport Beach, California, committed to fulfilling the last wishes of his dear friend Eleanor Bennett. As Charles works with Eleanor’s family to honor her requests, he navigates his own private grief.

The character of Eleanor Bennett is brought to life by Chipo Chung through a series of recordings left behind after her battle with cancer. These recordings uncover her journey from the Caribbean to America, challenging her children’s understanding of her life.

“Bunny Pringle,” played by Lashay Anderson, is a talented swimmer in 1960s Jamaica who aspires to become world-famous with her best friend Covey. However, when Covey mysteriously disappears, Bunny confronts unexpected challenges in her own life.

Faith Alabi portrays Pearl Thomas, a devoted caretaker for the Lyncook household during a tumultuous and uncertain time. Pearl’s unwavering dedication to Covey is rooted in a secret pact she made with Covey’s estranged mother, Mathilda.

Recurring guest stars include Ahmed Elhaj, Simon Wan, Anthony Mark Barrow, and Sonita Henry, each contributing to the complex tapestry of the series.

“Black Cake,” consisting of eight episodes, is executive produced by Oprah Winfrey, Aaron Kaplan, Carla Gardini, Brian Morewitz, Charmaine Wilkerson, and Michael Lohmann. The series will be directed by a talented team of directors, including Zetna Fuentes, Natalia Leite, Tara Nicole Weyr, and Mario Van Peebles. The collaboration between Two Drifters, Harpo Films, and Kapital Entertainment promises an engaging and unforgettable viewing experience for audiences when “Black Cake” premieres this November.
