GAL APPROVED! TV and Movie Spring Preview: Diarra From Detroit, Boarders And More!

By   |   March 8, 2024   |   Entertainment, Gal Approved

It’s getting warmer, so it’s time for our new TV series and movie preview! Here are a few series and films we can’t wait to watch.


A group of Black inner-city scholars attend a new, affluent boarding school and navigate topics like tokenism and cultural identity. Ah, the fun of being “The only.” The series evokes a sense of nostalgia while looking into the lives of Black youth in predominantly white spaces, addressing issues of classism, privilege, and self-discovery.

Currently on Tubi.

Dianna From Detroit

From BET Studios and Khalabo Ink Society, we once again get served Black love wrapped in trauma and humor: Thank you, Kenya Barris! Diarra From Detroit, an 8-episode series, follows, Diarra, a divorcing schoolteacher who refuses to believe she’s been ghosted by her rebound Tinder date. Her search for the missing man pulls her into a decades-old mystery involving the Detroit underworld. As the case unfolds, her co-workers, friends, and lovers become unlikely allies as she falls down a dangerous rabbit hole. The illustrious cast includes Morris Chestnut and  Phylicia Rashad. We also hear that an America’s Next Top Model winner is in a fun supporting role!

Premieres March 21 on BET. 

The Idea of You

The Idea of You - Anne Hathaway

We love this May-December romance between 24-year-old superstar Hayes (played by Nicholas Galitzine) and regular 40-something gal Solene, played by a youthful Anne Hathaway. Their chemistry is real, and the premise is sweet. We are rooting for you, Solene! Ladies, who hasn’t imagined being in a whirlwind relationship with a bold-faced celebrity? Count on the DivaGals to completely vicariously enjoy this film with prosecco and popcorn.

Gabrielle Union is credited as a producer and Jennifer Westfeldt (John Hamm’s ex) co-wrote the screenplay so we suspect these ladies bring a little intel on what it’s like to date a sexy celebrity.

Premieres May 2 on Prime Video.
