Skate Kitchen, writer-director Crystal Moselle’s engaging Sundance hit, premiered in the fall of 2018, which qualifies as a very long time ago by our current “wow, it’s still February” standards. Perhaps that’s part of the reason that the first trailer for Betty, Moselle’s Skate Kitchen spinoff series for HBO, feels like such a breath of fresh air—after all, it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen the coolest girls in NYC.
Shocker: They’re still cool! Returning to the cast are real-life Skate Kitchen members Rachelle Vinberg, Nina Moran, Kabrina Adams, Dede Lovelace, and Ajani Russell. Also returning: sunshine and shorts weather, someday. The six-episode comedy series premieres on May 1.
