Skateboarding Comedy Betty Gets Series Order At HBO

According to Deadline, HBO has given a series order to Crystal Moselle and Lesley Arfin’s female skateboard comedy series titled Betty, inspired by Moselle and Arfin’s critically-acclaimed 2018 film Skate Kitchen. The original film’s five leads Dede Lovelace, Ajani Russell, Moonbear, Rachel Vinberg, and Nina Moran have also been tapped to star as series regulars in the TV adaptation.

Betty will be set against the backdrop of New York City. It will follow a diverse group of young women navigating their lives through the predominantly male-oriented world of skateboarding. The series will be written and executive produced by Moselle and Arfin with Moselle also serving as the director. The original and series adaptation is based on the lead stars’ real-life all-female skate crew named Skate Kitchen.

Lovelace, Russell, Moonbear, Vinberg, and Moran are set to portray the roles of Janay, Indigo, Honeybear, Camille and Kirt, respectively. Their official character descriptions read as follows:

Janay – is opinionated, intelligent, and loyal to a fault. Janay has a strong will and a determination to lead that both helps and hurts her. At the end of the day, she’s the person you’d pick to be team captain—not because she always wins, but because she’d buy you a drink after the game no matter the score.

Indigo – is fun, flirty, and always down for an adventure. While she’s naturally conflict-avoidant with a low-drama personality, she somehow manages to crop dust everyone around her in the stuff. Indigo’s a street-savvy hustler who leans closer to the edge of shadiness than the others.

Honeybear – is the quiet storm, dark horse. She’s funnier than she thinks, wiser than she appears, and as stubborn as a boot on a tire. Her outlandish clothes make a statement, but she sometimes uses her individuality as a cover for the fact that she keeps her emotions on lock.

Camille – wants to be down with the dudes and has fought hard for the small space she’s carved out with them. Camille isn’t big on flashy displays of love or loyalty, but she’s perceptive and intelligent and will notice tiny details about others as if she were a poet.

Kirt – is the funniest person alive but even if she knew it, she wouldn’t care. She’s a lover (to the ladies), a fighter (to the rest of the world), and a little kid in the body of a woman.

Betty will be executive produced by Igor Srubshchik, Jason Weinberg, Michael Sherman and Matthew Perniciaro of Bow & Arrow Entertainment along with RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira. Lizzie Nastro is also set as a producer along with Kotva Films’ Izabella Tzenkova. Arfin Material in partnership with Untitled Entertainment will be co-producing for HBO.
