BawnTV Presents “About Him: Freshman Year”

After a successful Season One, Tyson Anthony decided to part ways with Signal 23 and take the About Him fan fav to BawnTV. No Shade on the front end, however, word on the streets is that tho Tyson Anthony owns the book rights, he doesn’t own the television rights. These rights are alleged to belong to famed Signal 23 creator, Henderson Maddox.

As if that’s not enough, we hear Signal 23 is still planning to continue with their own About Him, minus a few cast members, as we see they have migrated to the BawnTV side of life…. Don’t worry tho, Signal 23 still has Gary LaVard (Vincent)…..

In any case, get into the New Season and let us know what you think…. Will it be as EPIC as Season One? Or, Nah…..

There’s no denying that it’s all about him – Damien. After experiencing his first encounter with heartbreak Damien dives into the chaotic world of college life. Damien stumbles around campus like the other lost freshmen doing his best to keep his eyes glued to his books and off of shirtless jocks, fratboys, and handsome intellectuals. But Damien’s level of discipline may prove to be no match for the ways of a manipulate college senior who threatens to establish a degrading reputation for the freshmen.

Damien’s cousin Kendall begins his own journey of self-discovery. Kendall not only reconnects with himself, but with a love from his past – a cute church boy. It’s a forbidden love that may require Kendall turning his back on the person who has aided him in keeping his sexuality secret from friends, family, and their church for years – his mother.

T. R. A. D. E Season 2

K & D Productions and a new App called AGTV (African-American Gay Television) Online has teamed up to bring you T.R.A.D.E Season 2 which is an a spin off of the original series T.R.A.D.E IT ALL. 

Series Overview: In a world where emotions are ferociously explored in private, but in public are evaded mainly due to society’s homophobic stain on its citizens, where events are demoralizing to a specific race or gender, where uncomfortable and uncontrollable statistics burdened a specific sexual orientation devoid of education and prevention, only one web-series truly captures the essence of life on the down-low, while providing a fascinating political and psychological twist. T.R.A.D.E is a provocatively stunning thriller with deep dramatic variations intent on captivating its audiences. Our web-series depicts and showcases profound systemic bias and racism that certain elements of our society embody and utilize successfully to the detriment of others. ​T​he R​eality ​A​bout ​D​own low ​E​xperiences captures the essence of living in the ​LGBTQ community in the twenty-first century along with various hurdles that are yet to be cleared if maximum acceptability is society’s ultimate goal. The main philosophical force behind the writers of T.R.A.D.E is not fame or fortune, which is always welcomed, but instead to educate our communities of the challenges we still haven’t overcome. 

Plot: Following the mysterious disappearance of Atlanta’s most prominent business figure, marketing guru and psychopath, JAMIL CHARLES-STANTON positions himself as the new influential face of the city and in doing so decides to run for the Governor’s Mansion to advance his own special interests. T.R.A.D.E focuses on the psychopathic life of MR. STANTON, 32, the CEO of a fortune 100 marketing firm. Plagued by the murder of his childhood friend and fierce business competitor who’s currently presumed missing, JAMIL strives to assume the title of the city’s most eminent figure. With an insatiable appetite for popularity and power, MR. STANTON engages into a down low relationship with Atlanta’s current mayor and candidate for Governor, MR. ADRIAN POWERS. With the two attached intimately, the mission is to destroy one another to win the election with MR. STANTON stopping at nothing to succeed even if it means murdering whoever stands in his way. T.R.A.D.E is simply a dark gritty psychological crime drama about affluent public figures whose secrets catapult their careers. T.R.A.D.E is Executive Produced By Celebrity Fashion Designer KL Allen and Urban Media Personality DiamondKesawn. The series is written by Dante Black and Sheldon Crawford.  

With the success of LGBTQ Web series, we have been given a platform to have a voice. While there are many complaints about the portrayal of Black Gay Actors being glorified through images of sex, drugs and criminal activities, we want to touch on these subjects not to portray our characters in a bad light but show some of the problems we face in our community as a whole and educate while resolving their issues throughout the entire season.  

This Season we will touch on the following topics: 

 ● Black Lives Matter Movement ● Religion ● Politics ● Mental Illness ● Being A Gay Black Man ● Living with AIDS/HIV ● Being An Angry Black Woman ● Being Labeled A Whore/Golddigger/Sidechick as a Black Woman ● Sexual Abuse ● Being A Black Cop With All The Black Lives Matter Issues. ● Being A Racist 

AGTV (African American Gay Television) Online is a new digital network that will stream Black Gay Content such has Original Series, Feature Length Films and Documentaries. AGTV was created due to the surge in popular web series and films of created by Black Filmmakers who have no major network to take their work to the next level. With AGTV they plan to work exclusively with independent box aspiring Black Filmmakers to bring out of the box LGBTQ content to the network. 


 

About Him is About Done!

The Truth shall set you FREE! It’s no secret that the once hit web series, “About Him” is now About DONE!

What started off described as, “A scripted series about a young man trying to find himself and love in a confused stage in his life where he is struggling with his sexuality.” With a detailed outline of: “All of Damien’s focus is on him. Every thought. Every action. Is all about him. His touch. His kiss. His tongue. But Damien’s focus alters as he leaves home for the first time with little knowledge of how to manage what he’s feeling on the inside. His father and older brother blind to his sexuality, like most, Damien must learn the ways of the gay life with little guidance. The drama. The sex. The regrets. But there’s always a way out. There’s always him.” 

Has now turned into the overdone, undershot, SEX driven web series of the year. With all fairness, the book by Tyson Anthony that the show is based off had strong sexual tones which provided a sexual pleasure with class. Fast forward to the work of Henderson Maddox and you get a mini series for Porn Hub. 

Recently while roaming social media the below post came to our attention. Get into this post as it paints the picture of the demise of what was once held as one of the top web series in urban LGBT Culture. 

With all that said it’s time for their team to go back to the drawing board. Especially when now we got a series about erbody who was on About Him. Chile Cheese! The way the cast was set up they were not that interesting. 

Speaking of the Cast!!!!!! Can we get into it??? Not all of it, but just a lil bit!

  • Who told Brandon Karson that Blonde worked for him?
  • Gary LaVard is still the best thing from the show but he’s letting Henderson saturate him in a not so good way. 
  • Darone Okolie needs to be re-casted. 
  • Rahim Brazil __________ #DeathToThatIdea

At the end of the day it has ran it’s course. Maybe they can get $50,000 for Steel River or one of the other 117 shows on Signal 23 TV but as far as About Him…….. It is About Time they let Him GO!!!!
