Another day, another web series profile; as I said already, 2011 is/was the year of the black web series, as black content creators embraced that particular form of exhibition. And I expect 2012 will see an even heavier dose of content created specifically for the web, by black producers.
Today’s feature comes from R. L. Scott, and is titled Champion Road.
Scott wrote, produced, directed, and shot a pilot episode for the series described as “an action drama… surrounding a middle class Black family […] with a positive message depicting images of strong Black Men,” and it’s embedded below.
Darrin Dewitt Henson (Soul Food), Monyque Thompson Scott (Lie to Me), Brooklyn Mclinn (Hawthorne) and Ary Katz (J. Edgar) make up the series’ pilot starring cast.
