The number of Web Series continues to BOOM! It is hard to believe that just over a year ago About Him started what would become one of the fastest growing genres in entertainment today. Bawn TV continues to make its stake in the genre with newer series like Cheetah In August, About Him: Freshman Year, and soon, District, starring reality television maven, Tami Roman.

This fall however, things continue to heat up for the network with their latest announced series, Blackville, starring Web Stars, Chris June (About Him season 2: The Revolution, raising eli) and Rico Pruitt (About Him, About Justin, L.I.T.)!

According to a log line from Bawn TV the series centers on the son of a preacher who finds himself in turmoil wrestling with his religious beliefs and upbringing or the freedom of self-expression. The first episode, tentatively titled, “Sermon 1 (Luke 15:11-32: The Prodigal Son) will center on the Blackville family being in shock as their eldest son, “Cameron,” returns home. Meanwhile, the church is trying to remove the Pastor, “Jeffery Blackville,” for misusing church finances. Chris June and Rico Pruitt will play Cameron and Caleb Blackville, respectively.

We have to say we are quite excited to hear about this series! It comes across as Greenleaf meets Saints & Sinners with an LGBT twist! Even more interesting is the juxtaposition of casting Chris and Rico together. These two actors are practically night and day, but both have the appeal and talent to make almost any series worthwhile and entertaining. When we first heard of this series we assumed the two web stars were going to be lovers (what a scene that would have made…) but are happy to see they will be brothers. It definitely makes for a far more interesting dynamic between the two. We wonder which brother will be the one struggling with his sexuality though. Hmmm…

Anthony Bawn definitely seems to have a hit on his hands and we cannot wait to see the subject matter this series will be tackling. After all, when you are talking about the Black Church, sexuality, and family issues you just know a powder keg of drama is about to explode!

Web series, web series, web series! We love them and if you don’t you are so late to the party that it’s practically the next day! Here at HeyMikeyATL.com, we have seen just about everyone of them, but one series in particular is now near and dear to our hearts–TWISTED! 

Rahim Brazil and Toni BryceFilmed and directed by Rahim Brazil, Twisted, the series begins with a woman being dumped from a car in the middle of nowhere. We soon learn that woman is Vanessa (Toni Bryce) a counselor at a local counseling center who runs a support group. There she is instrumental in the lives of the community, in particular, three young men–Nick, Alex, and Star.

Nick is an all-around good guy who is looking for love with the wrong guy, Robert (Robert Brown). Alex turns tricks on the Atlanta stroll, desperate to take care of his drug addict older brother, Marcus (Chris June). Star (Siren Chanel), however, is stuck in the support group as part of his probation. Still, he has not cleaned up his act, moonlighting as a “delivery boy” for drug dealers Duke (November) and Money (Deon Christen).

We managed to get our hands on a few stills from the series as well as a sweet video from Keith Pettway and LaTamra Smith who will be playing the roles of “Jeffery and Elizabeth Blackville,”‘ respectively. We have to say these are two really attractive people and from what we have seen from their intro their characters are very dynamic. They may very well give James and Lady Mae Greenleaf a run for their money and salvation. Check out the still from the series below and be sure you keep your eyes peeled for Blackville coming later this fall exclusively on Bawn TV! Click here to subscribe! Happy viewing!

Is there anything Rahim Brazil cannot do? In the past we have referred to him as a jack of all trades, and that still holds true. Well now our favorite Web Star has made his directorial debut with a web series written and directed by him alone!

Twisted tells the story of a group of men and women whose lives become entangled–for better or worse–via their interactions through a local counseling center.

The series explores not only the process of getting help, but learning about your true self, all against the backdrop of danger and twists so unreal you will swear you are on a roller coaster! Besides the quality of the work and writing, the cast itself really sells the series. Most of them are brand new to the world of web series, but you will recognize the familiar face of Chris June (About Him: Revolution, Blackville, Raising Eli). Nevertheless, we can assure you overall their acting is on point!

Rahim is a friend to the site so are more than happy to share the official trailer for Twisted with you. We allways knew he was destined for greatness and big things. We are even more excited to let you know the series will premiere  via YouTube on Wednesday, November 15th with screenings scheduled for Birmingham, Atlanta, and Memphis!

What do you guys think of the trailer for Twisted? Is it as hot as Rahim is sexy? Let us know in the comments’ section below!
