OK, so I know there are many S&A readers who happen to be keen sci-fi fans. I’m not exactly one of them but, a smurfed up Zoe Saldana aside, I know that it’s not often that we get to see a woman of colour helming a sci-fi TV series or film – and this is […]

Nelson George’s Web Series “Left Unsaid” Debuts

I wasn’t aware that Nelson George was working on a web series… or maybe I was previously, but just forgot about it. Anyway, it premiered at the American Black Film Festival 2 weekends ago, and last week, made its online debut. It’s called Left Unsaid, and, the synopsis according to the website, reads as follows: […]

“The New Twenties” & “Punanny Diaries” (Web Series)

The web is the new frontier, as we’ve already mentioned on this blog. The production and distribution of content has been effectively democratized… for better and for worse, as content creators (including filmmakers) are aggressively taking advantage, as I believe they should. And the web series is just one of many products to emerge from […]

Aunty Beeb Sniggers With Attitude – New Black Comedy on BBC Online

Back in the early 90s there was a popular BBC comedy sketch series called The Real McCoy. Hilarious! At least that’s how I remember it. Kind of a UK version of In Living Color, it poked fun at Caribbean (mainly Jamaican), African (mainly Nigerian) and Asian (mainly Indian) people in Britain in ways that only […]

Preview “Lenox Avenue” – Web Series Featuring Michael K Williams, Jamie Hector, Dorian Missick, Others

The number of web series available online seems to be multiplying exponentially; I learn about at least 1 new title everyday!

“Diary Of A Single Mom” – Robert Townsend’s Web Series
