“Much of our world and work as a family has been inspired by the intimate conversation we’ve had with the incredible people we’re surrounded by,” Shahidi said in a statement obtained by Variety. “For years, we at 7th Sun have wanted to open the door wide open and share with my peers how moving it is to hear some of my favorite folks talk about their favorite things. We are excited to join forces with Jesse Collins Entertainment, Tiffany Mills and Meta to share these meaningful moments wit

“Let’s take a break from the everyday and get into what matters,” Shahidi begins the trailer to her new show. “Let’s hang with friends, explore their passions and their dreams, and learn something totally new about them because you never know what you might find out.”
