“Black Stories Presents: Your Attention Please” is Back for a Third Season

Hulu is kicking off Black History Month with the third season premiere of Your Attention Please. The series, which is hosted by Craig Robinson, highlights real life Black stories and artists from a wide variety of disciplines. This season will interweave documentary interviews, animated shorts, and comedy segments.

An exclusive preview from The Root offers an inside look at each episode, starting with NASCAR pit crew member Brehanna Daniels. Considering that NASCAR only recently banned the display of the Confederate flag amidst controversy and backlash from viewers, a Black woman is an uncommon sight in the sport. Daniels describes, “It didn’t really hit me until I got to the track that I wasn’t going to see much of anyone who looks like me.” But while she is currently “not the norm in NASCAR,” she is hoping that her skill in the fast-paced pit crew will lead to change.

In addition to Daniels, the first episode profiles celebrity dog groomer Ashley Ann and “ice cream scientist” Dr. Maya Warren.

Episode 2 features a pizza shop in Philadelphia that only hires former inmates, a pro bull rider named Ezekiel Mitchell, and a comedy short by Symone Baptiste “about a woman who discovers a beetle in her apartment and becomes unhinged.”

Episode 3 begins with an animation highlighting Dr. Sammy, an entomologist on a mission to save the bees. This is followed up with “Samantha Josaphat, the 397th Black woman to become a licensed architect,” and children’s book illustrator Keturah Bobo.

The fourth and final episode showcases pottery-maker Kristina Batiste, “a new short film by Casiano Hamer about conflicting identity and family drama,” and skydiver Danielle Williams.

Although the season premiere for Your Attention Please coincides with Black History Month, it is part of Hulu’s year-round Black Stories hub. New episodes of Your Attention Please will premiere on Hulu daily from February 1st through 4th. Seasons 1 and 2 are available for free on Hulu’s YouTube channel.
