Plot Synopsis

Based on Lena Waithe's YouTube series of the same name, TWENTIES is a half-hour comedy series that follows the adventures of a queer black girl, Hattie, and her two straight best friends, Marie and Nia, who spend most of their days talking ish and chasing their dreams during early adulthood in Los Angeles. The series explores friendship, finding love and messing everything up along the way. TWENTIES premiered on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 from 10-11pm ET/PT on BET and BET Her, with back-to-back episodes:

"Pilot" (10pm): Aspiring screenwriter Hattie finds herself evicted, jobless, and down on her luck before she runs into the famed writer/producer Ida B. whose show Cocoa's Butter, Hattie has shaded on social media.

"I've Got the World on a String" (10:30pm): Hattie navigates office politics on her first day as a writer's PA. Meanwhile Marie gets hassled by her gambling mother, while Nia take a chance on a date with her yoga client.
On Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT, BET premiered "Living the Dream," the season finale of TWENTIES, with a simulcast on BET Her. In a brave move to get Nia a role on Cocoa's Butter, Hattie is fired from the show. Marie holds a special birthday dinner that takes a turn when an unexpected guest arrives.
