Synopsis
Beloved for its refreshing comic tone and emotional heart, it centres on Marcus (Seth Gilliam), who has never had a boyfriend. Along with his closest friends, he hangs out at Miss Smokies club. They are always on the lookout for love, more often than not fall for the wrong guys, but are always there for each other. Polk is unafraid of the clich├ęs of the romantic comedy, and wins out by giving them a young, black, gay spin with some extra comic flair.
