ONE NINE FIVE LEWIS is a dreamed series about a group of friends navigating the realities of being Black, queer, and polyamorous in New York City. Set in the heart of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, the series follows Yuri and Camille as they test the boundaries of their open relationship. Yuri’s growing infatuation with a new lover leaves Camille uncertain about her role in Yuri’s life. Thankfully, she has immature and drama-prone younger sister Anne to offer some distraction. Tensions continue to build though, when Yuri’s old college friend Kris shows up unexpectedly in need of a place to stay.
 
Directed by Chanelle Aponte Pearson, created by Rae Leone Allen and Yaani Supreme (The Revival: Women and the Word), and co-written by Terence Nance (An Oversimplification of Her Beauty), ONE NINE FIVE LEWIS offers a glimpse into a world often unseen and overlooked.
