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] Gone Too Soon–Bawn TV’s (@bawntv) “District!”

Bawn TV never fails to deliver quality content. The dramas, movies, series, and projects on the network’s platforms continues to grow; the latest of these being its new movie, District, loosely based on Tyson Anthony’s novel, Hood Goods.

As you may already know, District began as a web series starring Brandon Anthony and Tami Roman, however, after a “tift” between Tami and production the series scrapped and made into a film. We have to say this was a surprising move on behalf of Bawn TV, but definitely an appropriate one.

 District tells the story of Miller (Brandon Anthony) a young man who grew up in the projects and had to raise himself after his mother (Tami Roman) was incarcerated after defending him from his abusive father.

Miller is strong, independent, and compassionate, but has a weakness for his friend, Trayvon (Jeffery Erskine), a crack addict. On top of all this drama, Miller seeks to find a way out of the projects with a little help from less than savory friends.

Overall District could have easily been one of the greatest web series ever produced, and we hate to see it end. (Is a recast possible?) Brandon, Tami, and Jeffery are all amazing actors, and this story hits a little too close to home if you are gay and stuck in inner city life. Still, it is definitely award worthy and even more interesting is Brandon Karson’s role in the film. We do not want to give anything away, but you have NEVER seen him in a role like this one. It is a true testament to his growth as an actor and his rising star power. You can see District subscribing to for yourself by Bawn TV. Happy viewing!

2017 was the quite the year for Web Star and director,  Rahim Brazil, and now 2018 is already shaping up to be momentous for him as well. Besides hosting his own radio show on HHJRadio, The Rahim Brazil Show, he is back to filming, launching a brand new series, Cheaterz Never Win!

The series will be reminiscent of popular shows with single episode story format similar to how episodes of Snapped or Murder are filmed. Each episode of the series will stand alone and retell a story of infidelity from someone who was either the cheater or was cheated on! This is definitely a first for the Web World and we have to say we are very excited. Anything Rahim attempts is pretty much gold thus far so we know it is going good.

You can expect to see a lot of new faces, but two familiar ones for sure–Chris June and Trey Love! We are not sure exactly what roles they will be playing, but if the two of them are reenacting any of these stories then expect it to be hot. There is no announced premiere date for the series, but we can also tell you that a sequel (Twisted 2) to Rahim’s hit series, Twisted, is on its way sooner than you think. The first few episodes have been written and a table read has been done. The season finale of the first season will soon be upon us!

Congrats Rahim again on your continuing success, check back here everyone for more news on Cheaters Never Win!

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!
