Watch 'SNL's Sasheer Zamata In 'Black Mad Men' Web Series By 'Key & Peele' Writer
Do you love Key & Peele? If the answer is no, do you at least love its stars and creators, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele? If the answer to both is "no" then I'm gonna be honest: I'm a little bit mad at you right now. You should be grateful to them for many things, from their cunnilingus sketch to their show bringing Phil Augusta Jackson to our attention. Jackson, who writes for Key & Peele, has a new web series. It's called Black Mad Men , and it stars Sasheer Zamata, aka our favorite new addition to the Saturday Night Live cast. And that's pretty much all you need to know to know it has the potential to be great.
The first episode, called "Hummus," centers around the team of black ad people trying to convince a white company man that they know how to sell his product to black people. It includes Zamata as Peggyliqua Oldschool, and a monologue by Jackson's Draper proxy Dontrell Dresser ("with hummus you get the sensation of sex with none of the consequences," a line I could actually hear Don Draper saying in my head), and with a tagline like "Advertising for black people, by black people, for white people..." it seems pretty much on track to delivering some of the hilarious takes on race relations that Key & Peele have been known for. "A taste of hummus, a splash of desegregation." Watch:
