Venus vs Mars , a popular British web series is going from Youtube hit to TV series thanks to the Sky network.

From critically acclaimed playwright Baby Isako , the witty London-set dramedy follows a “dynamic single girl” named Venus (played by Letitia Hector ), who is on a “catastrophic quest to find true love.”

While on the hunt for Mr. Right, “run-ins with the ex, old flames, new crushes and double dates mean there’s never a dull moment in Venus’s love life. Her friends also contend with man dramas and relationship woes.”

The 10-episode series is set to premiere on the Sky Living channel this Thursday with two episodes screening each night, just after Shonda Rhimes Scandal .

Venus vs Mars will be Sky’s first all-black cast comedy drama series that also has a black production team.

Check out the trailer and if you’re in the UK, tune in when it premieres this Thursday, April 9th at 11pm.
