Black Cake Season 1 Episodes 1, 2, and 3

Based on The New York Times-bestselling book by Charmaine Wilkerson, ‘Black Cake’ is an upcoming family drama wrapped in a murder mystery. The show boasts a diverse cast of characters and a global setting, promising something similar to Hulu’s Kindred released earlier this year. The story takes place in Jamaica, Rome, Scotland, England and Southern California as the narrative travels halfway through the world through complex timelines.

Marissa Jo Cerar has penned the adaptation and serves as showrunner on the series, which spans decades. Black Cake will aim to stupify viewers with the bold fantastical elements that has got critics excited in the early previews of the show.
