The Web World grew just a little larger last night thanks to the premiere of 2018’s first hit web series, Love, Sex, & Marriage!

It all went down at The Sandtown Pub, a cute little bar on the south side of Atlanta. There, family, friends, bloggers, and Web Stars gathered together to catch the screening of the series as well as lend their support to the cast. Needless to say it was hella fun!

The event was hosted by the director/creator of the series, Tre Floyd, and began with a performance by Sylvia Camile, singing Sweet Love. The night moved on with a cast interview by our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning, as he discussed with them what drew them to do the series, its relatability, how they get into character, their future projects, and the overall message of the series. Shortly thereafter, Grammy-nominated artist Phylle, nearly stole the show performing a medley of his own hit songs. (We have to say his music is now in heavy rotation on our Apple Music, check him out on iTunes!) Next, Web Star and director, Rahim Brazil interviewed Tre, discussing with him the directorial process, how his series stands out, his next project, and the importance of having a supportive network of people. Finally we screened the first episode of the series, Cheers!

Attendees included Rocc (H.I.M., The Come Up ATL, Currently Mikey w/ Rocc), Alex Jante (About Us, Kaleidoscope, About Him 2: The Revolution), Larry Whiteside (Whiteside Management), Alvin Agaratt (About Him, We Are Fam), Marquis Wiley (The Wiley Show) and as aforementioned Rahim Brazil (Twisted, About Him, H.I.M., Pharm, Kaleidoscope) and Mikey (HeyMikeyATL.com, Kontrol Magazine, Urban Socialites Magazine, Currently Mikey w/ Rocc, Blackville)!

About Love, Sex, & Marriage

The series centers on four friends; Ken (Rekio Thigpen-Holland), Vonte (Wendell Holmes), Andre (Marcus Jones), and Terrell (Savion Garcon). Ken prepares for his first anniversary party with his boyfriend, Darren (Larry Carter/Phylle) and enlists all his friends’ help. Vonte, his self-proclaimed best friend is all too happy to provide food from his prestigious restaurant, while Terrell is busy getting something else “done” with Deon (Alex Jante). Meanwhile, Andre is more concerned with borrowing his clothes and eating for free.

The four friends–all very different–still manage to pull it together just for Ken. However, Darren is not too happy with all the money Ken is spending for the party and in his own way outright questions if they should even be having one. Ken reminds him of which of them makes the most money and a fight ensues. Ken has to look to his for advice to return his happy home to normal. Meanwhile, we learn Darren is up to some dirt…You have to see the show for yourself to catch the rest. Simply subscribe by clicking here!

Needless to say this was an amazing event, bursting with positivity. Perhaps we have our generations’s Girlfriends or Golden Girls. It is really amazing that Tre Floyd was able to reach across the table to his family and friends to make his show happen. We can ALL learn a lesson from that. We will definitely be supporting this series and anything Tre Floyd has coming out. Check back here soon for more interviews with the cast! Welcome to the Web World you guys! Check out more pictures from last night in our gallery below!

Guests were treated to an interactive conversation with the cast and crew, led by Ava DuVernay, where they were able to preview the series through episodic clips and engaging discussion. Following the conversation, attendees had the opportunity for a Q&A with the cast. 
Throughout the night, guests vibed to the sounds of DJ Princess Cut, sipped on refreshing cocktails, sampled an array of tasty food selections and flicked it up at the ever so popular Mirmir photo booth.
We really loved this event, and of course, getting to meet some of the truly amazing media, personalities, and socialites. Most of all, however, we enjoyed “Cherish The Day!” The show is going to be amazing from the clips we saw. Love, Black love in particular, really deserves its day in the sunlight. Thanks OWN for this amazing new anthology series. It may be just what the doctor ordered.
“Cherish the Day” will have a two-night premiere on Feb. 11th and Feb. 12th at 9/8c on OWN.
