The SNL starlette, teamed up with Comedy Central’s Key and Peele, to take on the widely popular yet not so diverse ‘Mad Men’ in their new gut-busting web series ‘Black Mad Men’.

The series depicts the struggles of a black advertising team, 'CPT' or 'Colored People's Time,' pitching ways to sell hummus for their white client. The trio also joined forces with Key and Peel writer Phil Augusta Jackson, who's combination of silly stereotypes and snarky dialogue does not disappoint.

‘Black Mad Men’ sharply, and smartly turns the topic of a hummus advertising campaign into a historically referential -- yes, they do mention Jim Crow -- conversation about interracial relations. Watch the premiere episode above, and enjoy “a taste of desegregation.”
