The preview shows Robinson, a writer, actress and comedian, poke fun at quarantining with her boyfriend.

"It feels so good to be out... and away from my boyfriend," Robinson says.

"I love my boyfriend, I do. I love him, but we quarantined for 15 months!" she adds. "Don't nobody want to live the Martin Scorsese cut of a relationship."

Robinson also calls for an update to reparations.

"We gotta update these reparations to stuff that's gonna benefit my life," she says. "I don't want 40 acres and a mule, that is too much work!"

Robinson will also discuss moderating on former first lady Michelle Obama's book tour, failing at being a social justice warrior and other topics.

Sorry, Harriet Tubman will premiere Oct. 14 on HBO Max.

Robinson is known for co-creating the podcast 2 Dope Queens, which HBO adapted as a four-episode special that aired in 2018. She also hosts the Comedy Central talk show Doing the Most with Phoebe Robinson.
