For our first pride interview of 2023, we’re joined by Moonie Desvarieux and Jess Desvarieux, the sister team behind Moonie the Web Series. We discuss their queer Black web series, delving into where it came from, how the cast and crew were selected, and their writing process. Plus, where does funny come from! Acting! Directing! And so much more.
