Taye Diggs

I watched this over the weekend on YouTube, and didn't realize it was part of some larger initiative by ABC; I thought it was just these 2 guys getting together and having fun.

But it's part of ABC's Comedy Shorts series, ABC.comedy, which began in 2011 with video recaps for the network's comedies, and grew from there, to include original comedic digital video content, like web shorts, where the network says it's able to take more risks, while obviously still staying true to their brand.

This one comes from Taye Diggs and YouTube personality DeStorm Power, titled Taye Diggs Destroys Hip Hop, which features Taye as an actor without a steady TV gig (post-Private Practice), who decides to venture into the world of hip-hop music.

No word on whether there'll be any follow-up episodes, or if this is just a one-and-done short.
