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!

Web Series are perforating throughout the net and YouTube, and honestly we are excited and even happier to be back watching and reviewing them. There are a host of new web series out, but we had to cover Signal23TV’s newest show, Hurt, starring Lando King and Dyarius Tucker.

Hurt centers on Genesis (Lando King), a seemingly well to do guy looking for love in all the wrong places and with the wrong people. The first episode begins with a love scene that would make sinners blush! Later, we learn Genesis recently broke up with his “fuckboy” boyfriend, Junior (Dyarius Tucker), who is determined not to let him go by any means necessary. Genesis must make some tough decisions to secure his safety and sanity as he realizes the old saying, “Hurt people, hurt people.”

Lando King & Dyarius Tucker in Signal 23 Tv’s “Hurt” Series

We are really excited about this series as it marks the first time we have seen Lando King headlining his own series. Before he has always been in a more supporting role. The Web Star tells us the series is very relatable and promises it will keep you wanting more and more. We can definitely vouch for this, as we are already anxious to see what the next episode in the series holds for us.

Dyarius Tucker

As aforementioned Dyarius Tucker co-stars in the series as well, and his character is all too familiar with anyone who has ever dated someone they know they should never have entertained. Tucker is a good actor, and this may be the start of a legitimate acting career for him.

Hurt definitely tackles issues of domestic violence, insecurity, and mental health as Genesis comes to terms with all of his life choices and we are here for it! It can’t always be sex and fluff material in the Web World (sips tea). Kudos to the folks at Signal23TV, this one is a keeper! You can catch Hurt by clicking here and subscribing to the network’s Vimeo channel. Happy viewing!

*Tune in tonight to WTTRadio’s The Hey Mikey Show to catch exclusive interviews with Lando King and Dyarius Tucker! We love you for listening!

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!
