Nail It: Breaking into the Black Elite - 7 Episodes
There are a total of 7 episodes. Black, educated, and on the rise, Sahara and Noah Kyle move to North Carolina ready to break into the area's black bourgeoisie social circle. This is a world governed by black socialites and movers and shakers, who hold membership in the Sphinx, Darlings, The Shield, Belles & Beaus, The Coalition, and the black fraternities and sororities. Being in the right circle could position the Kyles for even greater affluence, but being shut out could be the death knell for more than their social life. Noah appears to quickly catch his stride, but Sahara struggles navigating this world of pearls, poise, and protocol. The sky’s the limit, but will secrets, lies, and double crossings keep them on the outside of this powerful network looking in? Or, when it comes to entering the world of the black elite, do they have what it takes to NAIL IT?
