Here's something different from Issa Rae Productions

Since the phenomenal success of her web series, The 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 unknowing of the creature he transforms into.

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

Watch episode 1 of Anansi below, titled Spiderling:

    Waaay too long for the nothing that takes place in the episode. We didn't need to see him shower or spend 3 real time minutes watching him sketch.

    Weird, low energy performance from Andrew and abysmal acting from the prostitute. I'm not sure she's even heard of a street walker before. I don't get it.

    Love the concept and want to root for this, but that was a LONG and uneventful 13 minutes.

    I really want this to win but ummm

    13 min is too long for only ~6 min of story. Too draggy/superfluous scenes
    Why did the crack head have the biggest part
