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).

Herein lies the motif and tapestry of Twisted as each of these characters’ lives and story lines intertwine to make an “experience”–not your typical web series. Rahim Brazil has brilliantly rallied together mostly fresh, raw talent and seasoned it with his own experience, style, and decision to become a true show runner. When you watch the series you will be amazed by the aerial shots, visual aesthetic, and most of all stellar acting. We are particularly impressed with the talent of Toni Bryce–a name we are sure will be a household one very soon!

Last night we attended a private screening of Twisted at The Hangout, a local safe space and charitable organization for the LGBT youth of Atlanta. There, the entire cast gathered with their family and friends as Rahim presented the first three episodes of the series. Attendees included Anthony Bawn (director of H.I.M., Blackville, Cheetah In August, and District), Brandon Karson (H.I.M., Triangle, District), Cardo Ricardo (Pharm: The Series), and Thomas Mackey (About Him: The Revolution, Uncle Joey, Last Night In ATL). 

Twisted Cast

Hosted by our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning, the screening was followed by a Q&A with the cast. The message reiterated from the cast overall was one of unity, support, and storytelling; that LGBT stories are viable and must be told! As Chris June so simply stated, “It’s about us…” Kudos Rahim Brazil, Kudos!

Be sure you come out this Sunday, to the Suite Lounge (375 Luckie St NW, Atlanta, GA 30313) for an all-black party and public screening for Twisted!

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

(l-r) Wendell Holmes (Vonte), Marcus Jones (Andre), Rekio Thigpen-Holland (Ken), Larry Carter/Phylle (Darren), and Savion Garcon (Terrell)

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!

Apparently, Love & Hip-Hop alumni, Milan Christopher Gordy, has joined the cast of About Him: South Africa where he will star alongside Jaquay Wilkerson and based on his Facebook posts, Lando King!

Milan posted the following picture to his Instagram stories today and it looks like this will not just be a walk-on or guest role, but a main one, appearing in a whopping twelve episodes!

As you recall, Milan was a series regular on the second season of Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood where he and “rapper,” Siir Brock, were presented as hip-hop’s first openly gay male couple. Needless to say the relationship quickly soured in some of the most public ways–namely social media feuding. Since then, Milan has been rumored to be romantically attached to Empire star, Jussie Smollett, and Magic Johnson’s son, EJ. Neither were ever proven.

We have to admit this is pretty exciting and we will definitely be tuning into this season. Now, we have never seen Milan act, but he is a child of Los Angeles we are sure some of that skill has rubbed off on him. Mr. Gordy is also some serious eye candy, maybe he will top our Hottest Web Stars list this year. Nevertheless, we will keep you posted as more about Milan and About Him: South Africa develops!
