We’re back with another selection of film and TV picks for you to enjoy this upcoming week.
From Love Island to Netflix documentary shorts focusing on Black athletes to the cult Nollywood classic Osuofia in London, you’ll have no difficulties choosing and even have a few options to watch with those closest to you either virtually or in person.
Love Island – Monday 28th June 9pm (ITV 2)
The hit series returns to ITV 2 this Monday evening and ‘will the series be as good as 2019?’ is the question on most Love Island fan’s minds. We will probably be more invested in ‘Black Twitter’ commentary from the likes of Tolani (tolly_t) and Nella Rose (nellarose) but will probably not leave the house for the next month either (depending on the quality of the series).
