The old saying used to be, "another day, another dollar." Now I think it should be, "another day another web series."

Diary of a Champion

The old saying used to be, "another day, another dollar." Now I think it should be, "another day another web series."

Now don't get me wrong. It's all good. Granted, some are better than others. A few are really good; and some (well more than just some) are just... horrible

But here's a new web series, which premieres tomorrow, that genuinely looks like it could have some potential.

It's called Diary of a Champion, and it's a six-part series which will air bi-weekly, beginning Tuesday, November 6, at 7pm/6c, on YouTube, and the Diary Of A Champion website, www.diaryofachampion.tv

Starring Claudia Jordan (“Deal Or No Deal,” “Celebrity Apprentice”), Nick Steele (“Entourage”, “Californication”, “Secret Life of the American Teenager”), and Erika Ringor (“Love & Basketball”, “Law & Order: LA", "Parenthood", “Sons of Anarchy“), the series "delves into the passion, determination and moral crossroads that athletes endure in order to achieve greatness."

The series was written by Ingeborg C. Eiland, who was inspired by past experiences to write the program. As she says: As an undergraduate athlete, I found the politics of sports and competition intriguing. There was always an interesting story behind each athlete and each sports program. Most people who aren’t athletes, never know the struggles in the sports world and those who are athletes don’t discuss it. As a writer and director, you write from what you know. 

The series was produced by L. Nicole Taylor and co-produced Waukesha Bell and Nikki Love, who also produced Matthew Cherry's The Last Fall.

Here's the trailer for the series:
