After a well-received pilot episode which debuted in January, and which was posted on this site, the full season of Stacey Muhammad's Isaiah Washington-executive produced web series REDEMPTION, For Colored Boys premiered last night, Sunday, August 25.

Starring Rob Morgan (Pariah) and Julito McCullum (The Wire), the series follows the life of Benjamin Boyd, Sr. who is determined to rekindle the spark between he and his wife, and, in turn, reunite his family, after nine years in prison.

Inspired by the highly acclaimed 1975 choreopoem For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf by Ntozake ShangeFor Colored Boys is a series of stories that follow the lives of African American men from various walks of life as they navigate and overcome challenges, face their fears, find their truth, mend broken relationships, find love, build families and inspire the lives of many.

MichaelBoogiePinckney also serves as executive producer, with LisaCynicalSmith producing.


New episodes of the series will air every Sunday, at 7pm.

Prior to REDEMPTION, Stacey directed the award-winning short film I Am Sean Bell, Black Boys Speak, which, as the title suggests, features the reactions of black boys reflecting on the well-documented Sean Bell tragedy.
