‘Diarra From Detroit’ Star Talks New Series, Detroit’s Kilpatrick Family

Diarra Kilpatrick developed, wrote, and stars in “Diarra from Detroit,” one of BET+’s most popular new shows this spring.

The show follows Diarra, a lady who is getting divorced and has moved into her mother’s old house in Detroit. She goes on a date with a man she met on Tinder, and they spend the night together before he disappears. Diarra conducts an investigation into the man’s whereabouts since she believes he has been kidnapped.

“I love the sort of detective genre. I feel like it just has a drive. It gets you invested. You want to see how it ends. So, there’s that part of it.

Kilpatrick says she wanted to find “a way into an amateur detective story that felt fresh.”

“I love ‘Murder, She Wrote,’ but I really wanted to update it in a lot of ways from making the character a little more sex positive and edgy and encountering people that felt really dangerous. You know, like, I love shows like ‘Only Murders’ and stuff like that. But, you know, I really wanted for the villains to feel like, ‘Oh, this is actually a hot mess that she’s gotten herself into.'”

The series explores on the issue of ghosting, a common feature of modern dating culture that Kilpatrick finds particularly fascinating. Through Diarra’s viewpoint, viewers investigate the societal ramifications of communication breakdowns in relationships, adding a dimension of introspection to the story.

“Diarra from Detroit” aims to bring a gripping blend of suspense, humor, and social commentary, providing fans with a unique take on the detective genre intertwined with the realities of modern dating. As Kilpatrick’s creative vision continues to expand, “Diarra from Detroit” demonstrates her prowess as a storyteller who is pushing the boundaries of the television scene.
