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!

the come up new york season 2 cast

In case you did not know, reality series are not just for television anymore, as YouTube and other streaming media are seeing the rise of Web Reality Series on a daily basis. One of the most popular of these series is none other than Gemini Filmz’ The Come Up New York. The hit series has not only spawned a spin off in the Come Up ATL, but has returned with a second season and a trailer that has already broken records across various social media platforms with a combined number 48,703 views in less than 24 hours! This makes their director, Karon Wilson, the first LGBT director to do so!

Gemini Filmz really continues to push the envelope with The Come Up New York and we have to say we are impressed. We also have to admit we were late to the party, not really knowing about the series or its Atlanta spinoff until our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning made an appearance there, and Atlanta-based Web Star, Rocc Sherrill, was one of the cast members. However, when it comes to The Come Up New York this is the source material where the fun, drama, and sometimes mayhem came to fruition. Check out the super trailer above!

Season 2 is going to be nothing short of lit! Of course we love the drama and craziness, it is inevitable with this merry group of New York “kidz.” More importantly we love that the show will be tackling more serious like depression, transphobia, and coming out. It only makes the show, and the cast members, more relatable in our opinion.

You all just be sure to catch Season 2 of Gemini Filmz’ The Come Up New York because we sure as hell will be with our popcorn, wine, and a group of our “A1s from day 1!” Congratulations again Karon!

Chasing Shade? “G-Status ATL Hustle” Creator Speaks on “Chasing Atlanta” (@ChasingRLTY) Beef!

We have to admit these web reality series are amusing. There are a few that have definitely come up on radar in the last year–Chasing Atlanta, The Come Up ATL, and The G-Status ATL Hustle! The first and latter, however,  seem ready to collide after an interview on our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning’s popular radio show, The Hey Mikey Show. Last night’s show centered on the cast of The G-Status ATL Hustle as they built up to their series premiere set to air tonight on YouTube. However, a few comments made by series creator and director, Jah Jah Katai, seem to have been perceived as shady by a few Chasing Atlanta cast members.

These aforementioned comments took place on cast member, Sherrod Willis’ Instagram Live feed and it seems some the “kidz” aren’t having it. Check out Jah Jah’s comments below (Swipe left) and a few comments from left on the post:

Shady? We don’t have an opinion. However, Mikey reached out to Jah earlier today for a statement and he had this to say, “Didn’t say their [Chasing Atlanta] name. A hit dog will holler. That’s it from me, but thank you again.”

You can listen to last night’s airing of The Hey Mikey Show by clicking here. All we can say is that we will be tuning into the premiere of The G-Status ATL Hustle where you will see Mikey make a guest appearance and we will be at Truth nightclub tonight for a special screening. If you’re in the metro Atlanta area come out, come dressed, and be prepared to be BLOGGED about!

twisted 2 family secrets

Summer is young, Atlanta is sizzling, and The Web World continues to grow! For months now we have been teasing and talking about Rahim Brazil’s Twisted highly anticipated second series, Twisted 2: Family Secrets, and now we have the first official trailer for you to see!

When we last saw the characters of Twisted mayhem had ensued resulting in death, termination–oh and incarceration! Twisted 2: Family Secrets picks up where the chaos left off. Our motley crew seems to be trying to move on with their lives without the clinic, but that does not mean there’s no drama involved. In fact, from what we can tell from the trailer, the drama and chaos are only going to increase! Indeed this trailer shows that this second season will be edgier, darker, and pushing boundaries we may have not have seen for a while in a web series.

As you can see Martel Star, November, Chris June, Siren, Robert Brown, and Toni Bryce reprise their roles of Nick, Duke, Marcus, Star, Robert, and Vanessa, respectively. These new faces, are relatively new to the Web World, most of them we recognize from Twisted outings or behind the scenes. Of the new faces we are excited to see include Marcus Jones, celebrity hairstylist & make up artist (he can do a lot more, but we cannot fill up this article with his accolades–GOOGLE HIM); Ebony Shinelle, a rising publicist in Atlanta who has her eyes and thumb print on a number of Web Stars and local rappers. Most of all, however, we are happy to see Rahim back in front of the camera! We wonder where his character fits in the grand scheme of things.

We have to say this has truly made our day. It is so good to see growth and as you know we sometimes have an affinity for the “darker” side of things at HeyMikeyATL. Still there are so many questions–How is Vanessa going to make ends meet? Does Marcus really have the balls to kill someone? Who is the light skinned vixen that has caught Star’s eye? You all just be sure to check back here for more updates on Twisted 2: Family Secrets! Happy viewing!
