The over two-minute trailer also includes a heartfelt tribute to deceased Black Panther actor, Chadwick Boseman.  The Ghanaian-British woman has worked as an actress, screenwriter, director, producer and singer, BAFTA Award for Best Female Comedy Performance and British Academy Television Award for Best Actress, among others.

Michaela Ewuraba has made a name for herself in shows such as the comedy-drama series I May Destroy You, which won her the Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie at the 2021 Emmys.

She has strong ties to her Ghanaian heritage. The writer never hesitates to showcase her roots through fashion and other forms of art as she is occasionally draped in Ghanaian-made Kente cloth.

She is one of the six leaders in comedy honoured for Variety‘s 2021 Power of Women. Ghanaian stylist Nana Kwasi Wiafe who was the brain behind her costume indicated that Michaela was inspired by two of Ghana’s “most powerful Queens. Nana Yaa Asantewaa, Queen of Ejisu and Nana Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem II, mother of Asantehene.”

The Black Mirror star is also reported to be joining the cast of the upcoming Mr & Mrs Smith series.
