The new coming-of-age dark comedy Send Help is set to make its premiere on August 11. For creators Mike Gauyo and Jean Elie, finally having an audience able to watch their hard work is already a win.
The 7-episode half-hour dramedy follows Fritz Jean Baptiste, played by Elie, as a first-generation Haitian American actor who is on top of the world since landing a starring role on the fictional hit TV show, This Can't Be Us.

Viewers will watch Elie's character navigate Hollywood as he struggles to find his next big hit while leaning on his close circle of friends.
