Imperfect is a drama/comedy web series starring Lauren Douglin and Abbie Samuel.

Imperfect follows Michelle (Lauren Douglin) after her public split with her ex-boyfriend, she’s not ready to start dating but runs into an old flame (James Merrill) and is open to love again but won’t let her wall down which effects her potential new relationship. 

Sam (Abbie Samuel) is looking for the perfect guy and isn’t ready to compromise what she thinks is right for her until she meets Jason (Abayomi Oniyidie) an average guy who challenges her perspective on the what she thought her ideal guy was. But are they right for each other? Imperfect is the spin-off to the award-winning web series Nate & Jamie. 

KASHIF BOOTHE | Director’s Notes:

Relatable, engaging and honest are three words to describe my web series, Imperfect.

If you are familiar with my award-winning web series, Nate & Jamie, Imperfect is the spin-off that is now taking the main focus. Plus, with characters Michelle and Sam being closely tied with the season one storyline of Nate & Jamie, I wanted the audience to get to know the characters in a different light. Inspired by US shows (past and present) such as Girlfriends, Being Mary Jane and Insecure, I felt strongly about providing the UK with a show just as topical.

There is a common depiction of black women on TV; ‘the strong/angry woman’. So I wanted to create female characters who are relatable and like the women I know, who are imperfect. There aren’t shows like this in the UK and I wanted to create a series which creates a conversation and tackles everyday issues like these shows and I believe Imperfect will do that.
