Watch Episode 1 Of Issa Rae-Produced Supernatural Web Series 'Anansi' Starring 'A' From ABG

Here’s something different from Issa Rae Productions

Since the phenomenal success of her web seriesThe Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl (ABG) I don’t have to tell you that black web series productions have seen a significant increase, with everybody trying to grab onto the same brass ring.

And it was also only a matter of time before someone involved with ABG launched their very own web series.

The first episode of a new web series called Anansi, from Andrew
Allan James
, who played the role of “A” in Awkward Black Girl, has debuted.

James describes Anansi as a “supernatural drama utilizing
Caribbean/African mythology, revolving around a young loner who struggles to fit
in, despite a family curse

He adds further that his series will “explore themes of acceptance, alienation, purpose and self-discovery.

Watch episode 1 of Anansi below, titled Spiderling:
