#3 Kay Oyegun - Writer on This is Us

Kay Oyegun

NBC’s This is Us is known to bring us all to tears. Whether it’s Jack having a perfect dad moment or Rebecca doing literally anything, we can thank Kay Oyegun for giving us all the feels. Kay Oyegun has writing credits for This is Us, Queen Sugar, and soon a biopic about the remarkable story of our shero, Angela Davis. Monica and Marita chatted with Kay about her move from Nigeria to the US, how she’s going to get more women in the writer’s room with her, and her favorite character to write for on This is Us! Can you guess what TV show helped her learn English all those years ago when she moved here? HINT: They’ll be there for you. Listen in!
