Life goes on and so does Signal 23 TV! The network that brought you About Him, Climax, About Justin, and Steel River has done it again with their newest web series, Tex Brown!

The series is yet another spin-off of About Him,  based on Tex (Tripp Ali), the older guy from the first season of the hit web series who taught Damien (Brandon Karson) how to give oral sex (coughing) and that his life cannot be all about Vince (Gary Lavard). As you recall, in the season finale the Tex was arrested for threatening to kill a man for gay bashing. Although Damien, Justin (Rico Pruitt), and Kendall (Rahim Brazil) avoided prosecution, Tex has done ten years in prison and is only now being released on parole! Naturally, the world around him has changed and he struggles to find a place in it. Tex must ultimately decide to face the demons of his past and move on with his life, or allow them to consume him and send him back to prison!

We were able to view the episode of the series and all we have to say–after picking our jaws up off the ground–is OMFG! Henderson Maddox did this! This series goes there–and we ain’t talking Degrassi! The first five minutes of the show put HBO’s OZ to shame! Tripp Ali and Lando King (“Cap” from Steel River: When We Were Young) went there and we do not mean faking it. Body, eggplant, tattoos, testicles, booty, sex–it was all there, so squares beware! Thus, it goes without saying you must see the uncensored version of this pilot episode, which you can rent by clicking here.

Like any Signal 23 TV the love and sex it mixed with wisdom and medicine as we see Tex is a tortured soul. The things that have happened to him in the past no one should ever have to endure. The series is dark, moody, and gritty. Like About Him meets Gotham City.  It takes a fresh perspective on what it means to have to acclimate to life after prison, where everyone and everything around you has changed and your future is uncertain and controlled by others. Tripp Ali proves he is a true star who can carry a series on his own. We have a greater and deeper appreciation of his skills after we see he did not hold back. Just be sure you tune in! We can tell you watching this series is a full body experience. Happy viewing!

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!

The series centers on three men, Colby (King David) a prodigal son dealing with his father’s death. Colby is clearly suffering from “words left unspoken;” angry and bitter over how things soured between him and his father, but not really knowing how to express his grief or anger. He is, however, interested in his next door neighbor, Mark (Donta Hensley).  Mark is a man renowned for his temper and violence, but saw Colby’s father as someone to be loved and respected. Lastly, we have JT (Tripp Ali), a father with a son soon to enter college. JT is also quite the explorer at night when it comes to his sexuality or alone time.

We are not sure what role Gary will be portraying, but we know it will be one we have to see. We are really excited about seeing Gary and Tripp on the same series together. It is something that has not happened since the first season of About Him.

Honestly, we thought Gary’s appearance in Honest Men would segue him into H.I.M. (formerly known as About Him: Freshman Year) where he would reprise his role of “Vince,” and reunite with Brandon Karson, Rahim Brazil, and Rico Pruitt. Gary has stated he has no plans to, but we know it is something fans definitely would not mind seeing it (hint, hint).

This year alone nearly a dozen have debuted and we have to say the stories, acting, quality, and message of each of these series pushes the envelope, rivaling anything you will find on television. The latest series to make its mark may very well prove to be the greatest!

Ladies and gentleman Bawn TV has created a true masterpiece with its newest series, Blackville!

The pilot episode of the series, A Son Comes Home (Sermon 1), centering on a church family, The Blackvilles. Here we find a church family that is far from your typical one. The oldest son, Cameron (Chris June) is fresh out of prison after serving a twenty-two month sentence for receiving stolen property and lying in court. He finds love in the most unexpected, yet extraordinary way. His younger brother, Caleb (Rico Pruitt), struggles with the idea of consummating his relationship with his boyfriend.

Meanwhile, their parents, Jeffrey and Elizabeth are in a loveless marriage, but head a church that helps many people in the community. Elizabeth is determined her family “look” respectable and united– and that means making Cameron fall in line! Jeffery has his own issues to deal with, however, as a church trustee, Israel (Rigardo Rush) accuses him of stealing money from the church!

Family drama, infighting, sabotage, acceptance, and sexual exploration all combine to make Blackville potentially the greatest web series to date. You may try to compare this series to Greenleaf, but honestly it would be like comparing apples and oranges. Blackville is easily more realistic–some church folk cuss, there are gay Preacher’s Kids, every family has that one rebel child, and the inner workings of church politics and finances are seldom civil! Deal with it!

Even though this is only the pilot episode we have to say Anthony Bawn, executive producer and director of the series, is really on to something here. “With Blackville I want to convey the human traits of a religious trait. We are all flawed even the ones with the highest level of spiritual contact. But I plan to showcase how raw and real these individuals can be. So please support and stay tune for more from Blackville.”

New episodes are set to debut at the top of the year, and naturally we cannot wait! Check back here for more updates and interviews with the cast!
