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!

(Singing) “Once upon a time not long ago I was ‘H.O.E.!'” Sorry guys but we are not talking Mariah Lynn this time. Instead our crosshairs and gaze are set on AConnectionTV’s new hit web series, H.O.E! The series is directed by Toni Bernard (About Him Season 2: The Revolution, Red Carpet Hashtags & Heartbreak) and created and written by Wesley Henderson (Culture Clubb, The Mona Samone Show, While You Sleep) is set in Atlanta and centers on a trio of friends, Hawk (Rodney Glover), O‘Neil (Ryan K. Sanders), and Elizabeth (Tiya Rene’e). Together the first letters of their names make the acronym of “H.O.E.”

Hawk is Instagram famous with a knack for having casual and selfish sex with his followers (Yeah he’s an asshole). Meanwhile, O’Neil is a hopeless romantic determined to not be a gay, promiscuous stereotype all while struggling to move away from his ex-boyfriend Chance (Ryan Marcus) when the latter cheats on him. Finally, Elizabeth loves the ladies and gents and is perfectly comfortable with and casual about dating multiple people at once. The three friends tackle life and love in Atlanta while struggling to maintain their own near familial bond. The series as a whole will have you questioning what makes anyone a hoe, and you may even question are you a hoe? Overall the series actually has a story and you will find it refreshing to finally see a web series sprinkled sex and not a porn with dialogue!

Grade: B+

What We Liked

rodney glover aconnectiontv H.O.E.

-The story line was unique and actually tells a story. There is not a single series in the Web World like H.O.E. Trust me we checked and it is REFRESHING.

-The show definitely runs off an Insecure vibe at times, especially when Hawk is on the scene.

-The locations and shots of Atlanta definitely did our city justice.

Corey Knott

As you may already know HD Productions has proven itself to be quite the powerhouse this year under Corey Knott’s guidance, earning a slew of awards from the National Youth Pride Services (NYPS) in a host of categories. Corey reveals that he feels LIT has run its course and that he now would like to make content that will appeal to a wider audience of viewers. “There’s a lot of talent here at HD Productions and I want my actors to have all the opportunities I know they deserve. That means working on more content that appeals to more people and hiring quality talent. I want to move away from just Instagram stars and people with a following…”

We wholeheartedly agree with Corey’s vision for HD Productions, but are really going to miss LIT! The series had an amazingly sexy cast both seasons with beaus like Zahfar, Justen Ruff, Rashad Lawrence, Gorgious Montana, Sherrod Willis, and Mustang. Corey has revealed to us there are a number of new series he will be debuting in January that he is sure will be runaway hits.

“The audience is really going to like what’s coming next, so they just need to stay tuned!” HD Productions’ flagship series, Real Eyes Realize Real Lies, is also making its curtain call with a series finale set to debut this month.

Web Series are perforating throughout the net and YouTube, and honestly we are excited and even happier to be back watching and reviewing them. There are a host of new web series out, but we had to cover Signal23TV’s newest show, Hurt, starring Lando King and Dyarius Tucker.

Hurt centers on Genesis (Lando King), a seemingly well to do guy looking for love in all the wrong places and with the wrong people. The first episode begins with a love scene that would make sinners blush! Later, we learn Genesis recently broke up with his “fuckboy” boyfriend, Junior (Dyarius Tucker), who is determined not to let him go by any means necessary. Genesis must make some tough decisions to secure his safety and sanity as he realizes the old saying, “Hurt people, hurt people.”

Lando King & Dyarius Tucker in Signal 23 Tv’s “Hurt” Series

We are really excited about this series as it marks the first time we have seen Lando King headlining his own series. Before he has always been in a more supporting role. The Web Star tells us the series is very relatable and promises it will keep you wanting more and more. We can definitely vouch for this, as we are already anxious to see what the next episode in the series holds for us.

Dyarius Tucker

As aforementioned Dyarius Tucker co-stars in the series as well, and his character is all too familiar with anyone who has ever dated someone they know they should never have entertained. Tucker is a good actor, and this may be the start of a legitimate acting career for him.

Hurt definitely tackles issues of domestic violence, insecurity, and mental health as Genesis comes to terms with all of his life choices and we are here for it! It can’t always be sex and fluff material in the Web World (sips tea). Kudos to the folks at Signal23TV, this one is a keeper! You can catch Hurt by clicking here and subscribing to the network’s Vimeo channel. Happy viewing!

*Tune in tonight to WTTRadio’s The Hey Mikey Show to catch exclusive interviews with Lando King and Dyarius Tucker! We love you for listening!
