Jean Elie, Mike Gauyo Talk New Series Send Help, Exploring the Haitian American Experience Onscreen
Jean Elie: It’s something I’ve been trying to do for a long time. Just creating a show loosely based off my life and things of that nature. But there was never really the right timing. And then when Insecure happened and Mike and I connected, and we found out we were twins.
We were like, ‘Oh, cool! Let’s just make this thing happen.’ We got the opportunity to start working on it together and we started pulling all-nighters. Like, this is the show. To be working with your best friend and creating and telling stories. And also being first generation Haitian Americans making it happen.
