Cocci portrays Keith, a coworker to Leilani, whose friendship with Leilani causes Jibran to be jealous. Originally scheduled to premiere at SXSW, the film is now streaming on Netflix.

His first professional credit was earned on the TV series, Dynasty, in 2018, roles on other network shows soon followed, including The Gifted, The Resident, MacGyver and more.

Brown will next be seen in a large role as Janelle, a no-nonsense prison physical therapist who forms a romantic relationship with a patient, on Starz's crime drama Hightown. The series follows a woman's journey to sobriety that is overshadowed when she is pulled into the middle of a murder investigation. The highly-anticipated season 2 is set to premiere October 17th.She is no stranger to the small screen. Brown was nominated for her first Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Digital Drama Series for her role as Tamara in Giants, which streams on Issa Rae's YouTube Channel. In addition, she is known for her three-season run as Sergeant King on the hit CW series Black Lightning. Brown also recurred on season 2 of Netflix's Mindhunter, which was executive produced by Charlize Theron and David Fincher. Her memorable role on Showtime's The Good Lord Bird earned praise from The New York Times and Time Magazine. Brown's niche as the hip and witty charmer with an east coast flare has also landed her roles on numerous other networks including Netflix, HBO, ABC, CBS and TNT. Brown made her mark on the world of film in the Academy Award-winning Judas and the Black Messiah as well as Uncle Drew. She also starred as Bernie, one of the mathematicians known as a “human computer” in the award-winning Hidden Figures alongside Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer.

Five years after the debut of “Insecure,” the acclaimed HBO comedy-drama is finally coming to a close. Creator and star Issa Rae discusses the characters' journeys, personal growth and “betting on herself.”Read more:For a certain generation of Black women, Issa Rae's volume of work is like the Harry Potter books — stories about characters who grow and mature alongside their fans. “In shooting this final season, we've been very nostalgic and thinking about where we came from and imagining what our impact would be like,” says Rae, the creator and star of HBO's “Insecure.” “Maybe people will hold on to this show as part of their lives in that way, and we may go down in history, you know, if we stick the landing. … And that makes me feel really good.”“Insecure” debuted on HBO in 2016, focusing on the lives of two late-20s best friends in Los Angeles who are trying to navigate messy romances, social lives and professional aspirations. But Rae has been the voice of millennial Black women for more than a decade, all the way back to her hit Web series “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.”“I used to binge-watch this show in my dorm cafeteria on Fridays,” says Martine Powers, “Post Reports” host. “I'd be like, ‘Oh, all my essays are done, getting ready for the weekend. I'm going to watch “Awkward Black Girl.” This is going to be amazing.'”As Rae reflects on the final season of her show, her characters' trajectory, and her own personal growth, she says that she's learned to trust the choices she's made along the way that have led to greater artistic freedom — and power. “One of the scariest things to me … is just, like, the fork-in-the-road choice,” Rae says. “There's something so terrifying about knowing that this is a decision that I could make that could change the course of my life. And I just have to make it.”

[We're] just breaking that myth that Black people are monolithic, we can only write one thing or we all experience the same thing, when that's not true. We live varied experiences, and we write many types of things."   Mike discusses getting his first writing job with Issa Rae, and gives advice for the aspiring writer. "You have to remember that you're only as good as your last writing sample. You're only as good as your last project, so you have to keep the momentum. You have to keep writing. . . if I wasn't writing all the time, I would not have the opportunities that I have now.”   Don't forget to subscribe to the Write On Podcast on iTunes!   Now available on Google Podcasts!
