There truly is no stopping Signal 23 TV! Over the last year the network has seen its fair share of departing actors and new web stars, but that has not hampered the production of some pretty amazing web series.

The latest series to join the Signal 23 TV is none other than Kingdom Heights, starring Jaquay Wilkerson!

Kingdom Heights centers on a neighborhood in “The SWAT (Southwest Atlanta),” whose drug scene is ruled by a few drug families ruled by a revered and respected, but ailing drug lord. There seems to be an uneasy peace among the families and inner workings of the drug trade in the hood, but with their drug lord retiring all eyes turn towards “King” (Jaquay Wilkerson; About Him Season 2: The Revolution, Uncle Joey) as their next leader.

King, however, is more concerned with taking care of his son, making sure his own crew remains on point, and keeping his dual lifestyle a secret– he has male and female lovers! Still the drug game is as treacherous as ever and with the release of his cousin, “Boo” (Alvin Britton, AKA “Mustang;” The Getaway, Steel River) from prison the stakes only get higher as the latter is determined to be Kingdom Height’s next drug lord.

We have watched the first four episodes of the city and we have to say like Degrassi, “it goes there.” The story is is very believable as it reveals the inner workings of the street game and the personal lives of its players. However, most intriguing is the backdrop poverty, power struggles, and tales of survival juxtaposed by the unspoken respect and a mutual understanding of all those involved. Yes, it reminds us of Power, but only in the sense of subject matter. The series stands out on its own thanks to its key players, Jaquay and Mustang, and let’s not forget those sex scenes–Tex Brown worthy! The face of Signal 23 TV is changing and we have to say we can dig it!

[REVIEW] SEX, Suspense, & Surreality! Tyson Anthony’s (@authortysona) “Honest Men” Already Delivers in Season 2!

If the formula works don’t fix it–that’s what we always say! Clearly, Tyson Anthony has found a formula that works for him with his critically acclaimed and award-winning series, Honest Men!
 Starring Tripp Ali, Donta Hensley, King David, and now Gary Lavard, the series is back with second season and we could not be happier! The second season premiere begins the week after Mark (Donta Hensley), Colby (King David), and JT’s (Tripp Ali) menage a trois (threesome) and not much has changed for Colby and JT. Mark, however, finds himself “incapacitated” for the time.

If the formula works don’t fix it–that’s what we always say! Clearly, Tyson Anthony has found a formula that works for him with his critically acclaimed and award-winning series, Honest Men!

 Starring Tripp Ali, Donta Hensley, King David, and now Gary Lavard, the series is back with second season and we could not be happier! The second season premiere begins the week after Mark (Donta Hensley), Colby (King David), and JT’s (Tripp Ali) menage a trois (threesome) and not much has changed for Colby and JT. Mark, however, finds himself “incapacitated” for the time.

JT still struggles with his porn addiction and hallucinations, while Colby reconnects with one of his “best friends” in a special way, much to the latter’s dismay. I n fact Colby’s enticing ways have fully evolved into someone who loves being the object of everyone else’s desire which may erupt into a very messy and explosive “love hexagon” when Solo (Devon Toran), Andre (Gary Lavard), and Ryan (Corey Wade). Then there’s the appearance of two new characters played by Christopher Deloatch and Shawn Deon.

Although this is only the first episode of the season, flashback scenes still show us that deep down inside JT still wishes to reconnect with his son. His current demons may prohibit that, but his and Colby’s desire to make amends with and come to an understanding with the men they are related is easily the deeper story line to delve into. Only in Honest Men does the Web World dare to explore the complexities of gay men who happen to be fathers and wayward sons trying to find their way through manhood. Tyson you never fail to deliver a story that both entices us and makes us think. Depth people! There is definitely more to stories about the community than hard bodies and boys wanting what they cannot have.

Spring is here and that means it is time for change and growth! Thus, what better way for a writer and Web Star to prove his own season of transition than with the debut of his first Web Series! The Web Star is none other than Alex Jante, and his series, The Unanointed, is an unholy hit!

Alex Jante

As we previously reported Alex has delivered the Web World’s first supernatural thriller rooted with some real sentiments. The series centers around Demetrius (Alex Jante) a man diagnosed with VIC, a sexually transmitted disease that gives its victims vampiric traits and tendencies including biting, pheromones, fangs, and a powerful urge to engage in “nocturnal activities.”

Demetrius finds it hard to date and find love when he suffers from a disease that makes him seem like a monster. However, finding a boyfriend may be the least of his worries when there’s a serial killer on the loose. You will just have to tune in to see how this all plays out!

We have to say we love this new web series, and not just because of its subject matter, but “the fresh blood”–we mean new faces–it brings to the game. Honestly, the casts of many web series have become monotonous where you see the same Web Stars in different series, often typecast in the same roles–NO SHADE, JUST FACTS.

However, as we have mentioned before Alex, like Issa Rae (Insecure, Him or Her) simply “reached across the table” to his family, friends, and boyfriend to make this series happen. The acting is good, the delivery is great, and we got to see a few familiar faces–namely Brandon Karson–like we’ve never seen them before. We also have to add you will absolutley LOVE the soundtrack of the series. Clearly someone took a page from Lyrik London and made the music match the mood.

Thanks to Mr. Jante, we were able to see the first two episodes of the series and now we are truly smitten and ready to see how all of this goes down. You’ve done some really dope work Alex, you and your crew rock! You all just be sure to tune in on Monday, April 23rd! Happy Viewing!

Web Star and writer, Alex Jante definitely has our attention with his own original web series, The Unanointed!

The Unanointed centers on “Demetrius” (Alex Jante) a man suffering from VIC, a mysterious, supernatural STD that has for all intents and purposes made him a vampire! VIC not only turns humans into vampires, but has become an epidemic as there are no contraceptives that prevent its passage from one person to another. As you can see, the series is marked by some social commentary, but does so through a fantastic supernatural filter.

The series stars Alex, but there are a (FINALLY) some new faces, Christian Emile Dacus, Lyndon Chivers, and Lisa Hope; and a few familiar ones like Cardo Wanzer and Brandon Karson. Alex took Issa Rae’s approach and “reached across the table” to complete his series by enlisting the time and talents of his boyfriend and friends.

The Unanointed may be Alex’s first web series, but it is not the first time he has had a hand in writing a series. In fact, this amazing man has written episodes of About Him: The Revolution, Tex Brown, Climax, Uncle Joey, Kingdom Heights and Steel River: When We Were Young, and most recently the first Black LGBT horror film, The Get Away!

We are here for Alex’s latest venture and are sure it will be hit! You all just be sure to tune in the moment it drops. Currently there’s no set date for the series premiere, but it will be this Spring. Follow the series on Instagram @theunanointedseries and check back here for more news! Congratulations Alex this is huge!
