You're probably saying to yourself, "Not another one."  And I'll admit that many of the web series that have been popping up these days leave much to be desired.  But if you've sat through 50, you can sit through one more. And I honestly think you'll appreciate Brothers With No Game, a web series created by four young men responsible for the trendsetting website of the same name.

I really like what I'm seeing with BWNG.  It's a well-made, creatively-written series.  But I know that S&A's readers aren't shy about sharing what they really feel about a new contender-- so I'll let you guys be the judges.  If you like what you see here, check out the BWNG blog for more.

 

BWNG has a main cast that includes David Avery, Jay Marsh, Zephryn Taitte, Isaac Sosanya, Magdalene Mills, Camilla De Oliveira, Emerald Crankson, Natalie Duvall-Hubert, Danielle Moseley, and Zalika Miller.

Set in London, Brothers With No Game - The Web Series follows the social and romantic lives of four friends: Theo, Dorian, Junior and Marcus. Facing a ‘quarter-life crisis’, the 20-somethings come to terms with the responsibilities and dilemmas that revolve around work, family, friendships and most notably, women. Their distinctive personalities and ever-changing love lives are paralleled with a strong friendship and one evident, common, trait...they have no game.

    Dear Mr. Akitobi:

    While I demand a lot from anything I watch, web series in particular, because the vast majority are utter wastes of my time, this is great! Thank you for putting in on my radar. Too boot, it's refreshing to see a smart, imaginative program about black people, and have it come from across the pond.

    Not terrible, but not particularly interesting either. It just kind of meanders along. I like the look of it, though.

    Hilarious! Especially the part at 1:10 in the first video when the camera pans over.

    I agree with Dee. Just grow tired of relationship stories. Good luck to this team, though.

    Both my sister and I plan on being regular viewers of this wed series. Funny stuff!

    If as a filmmaker all these webseries are too much for you, perhaps you are in the wrong game. The filmmaking landscape has radically altered from the days of waiting for a big corp to discover how brilliant you are and film students claiming they couldn't tell their story unless it was shot on film.
    The savvy filmmaker uses the webseries to develop their skills, confidence and audience, the savvier filmmaker knows that at the end of the series run they potentially have a feature with a proven audience and potential micro investors for future projects.

    Meanwhile the clever people sit talking about that one script and the day they can afford a Red.

    I liked that. I'll definately be a regular viewer.

    Well, it's not bad. I managed to make it through the whole thing. I don't the continual reference to women as "females." Just irks me. But the characters seem interesting.

    Loving all of the chocolate people in this. I think it's cute and will stay tuned. My only critique is I thought that there was a bit too much talk in their confessionals. But it was only the first webisode so that may all die down in future episodes.

    This has been spreading through the social network grapevine like wildfire! I only heard about it today in a Guardian article about why Black actors and writers are turning to the internet in place of TV. There is so much going on...Natural hair revolution; Seriously good African cinema; Hip-life music going mainstream oooo I love it.

    Before the complainers come in... love it! What a cuckold... it was funny. And the geek... I like Theo already.
