Happy Internet Geek Tuesday!
I LOVE WATCHING WEBISODES!!!!!!
Last year, I fell in love with Black & Sexy TV’s Roomieloverfriends webisode series created by Numa Perrier and Dennis Dortch. Issa Rae is serving as the executive producer. The actors are Shayla Hale and Andra Fuller.
Roomieloverfriends tells the story of two roommates, Tomiko, a twentysomething woman, and Jay, a twentysomething man. They end up sleeping together which complicates their relationship and dating experiences. The storylines are Love Jones juicy! Click here to watch Season One.
FYI: The Black & Sexy TV team used indiegogo as a crowdfunding tool to raise money over $16,000 to develop Season Two.
I am also a HUGE fan of web-based programming created by and about women. Since it’s National Women’s History Month, I have included a list of some of my favorite webisodes, web-based programs, and web destinations/stations. Please share your favorites in the comment section below.
