I shared the trailer last week; episode 1 is now online, and is embedded below.

Orlando Jones' new digital series airing exclusively on the popular Machinima Prime channel on YouTube, launched yesterday, Sunday, May 5.


Titled Tainted Love, here's a description:

A fast-paced and visceral story of true love against all odds focusing on two expectant parents; one a quick-witted hitman/bagman and the other a well-intended yet hopelessly inept thief. Black Barry will stop at nothing to protect Jezebel from his insanely vengeful boss Fred Lucas after a lapse in judgment causes Jezebel to rob Lucas, and the bodies start to pile up. 

It's further described as a graphic novel style action comedy, which was created by Jones himself.

Avi Youabian directs, with Deanna Russo, Maz Jobrani, Jim Jefferies and Eric Roberts rounding out the cast.

Check out episode below:

    Ha, this is kind of awesome. Funny, and slick in a lot of ways. Few gripes: 1. Why is it that when there's a multiracial cast they always expose for the white people lighting-wise? Makes all the dark faces look flat. 2. For heaven's sake, cut back on the blaccents. 3. If we're supposed to believe that Orlando Jones is 32... (snickers)

    1. I think, you're supposed to believe Robert Downey Jr is 32. 2. This is far and away the best content I've seen on the internet. It looks like a movie. In fact, it's WAY better than a lot of movies I've seen. How can you gripe about that???? 3. Tainted Love is proof that Orlando Jones is just plain AWESOME!

    Tough crowd here. I enjoyed it.

    It's trying way too hard to cater to the A.D.D. crowd without doing little things like, introducing characters, setting up story, etc. I would hate to think them having a baby is the catalyst for what would be the events to follow. Why? Because it's not enough for me to take the journey with them as they bumble about, trying to get money. I saw the humor in the customer trying to be the voice of reason, but it wasn't enough. I barely chuckled at any of it. It's good to see Orlando Bloom keep it going for himself career wise but this isn't for me. Sorry.

    I was bored and I felt it was UNFUNNY. But thank you for the correction. I never cared much for the guy. So, naturally...

    Just because something is fast paced and eye-catching doesn't mean it's catering to the "A.D.D" crowd, which I'm a part of being that I have it. How much story set-up and character introduction do you think you can fit into a 5 minute webisode? Truthfully, this series is perfectly suited for the channel and medium on which it's being shown. As popular as graphic novel based material is, the creators of Tainted Love made excellent choices in the style and tone for the Youtube audience. By the way (I've almost made this mistake too) it's Orlando Jones, Bloom is the other guy.

    Literally all over the place. I see what they're going for but it didn't quite gel for me. I did laugh when the customer started chiming in on the robbery and was glad ol girl got called out on "break yourself," though! I'm a fan of Orlando's but won't be watching again.

    "What kind of robbery is this" ad infinitum.
