Here's the trailer for that Vin Diesel web series with Fox Digital Entertainment, titled The Ropes - an original series about the lives of bouncers - I've already alerted you, and which I didn't care for, which in turn attracted several comments (likely from the same person using different handles) challenging my reaction to it.

The Ropes

Here's the trailer for that Vin Diesel web series with Fox Digital Entertainment, titled The Ropes - an original series about the lives of bouncers - I've already alerted you, and which I didn't care for, which in turn attracted several comments (likely from the same person using different handles) challenging my reaction to it.

As already noted, the series is no longer a web series, and is now available on Netflix. You can stream it there right now if you have a Netflix account. 

I watched the first 3 episodes and wasn't impressed enough to continue with the series.

Each episode is about 24 minutes long, which tells me that they may have been aiming for TV, likely cable, given the R-rated content. 

There are a total of 6 episodes, each marked Season 1, which suggest that there may be more coming... as in a season 2.

Recall Zoe Saldana signed on the direct at least one episode; I just scrolled the credits of Episode 2 and saw her name listed as director of 2 of the segments within epidode 2. Each episode is apparently broken up into 3 parts. 

Vin doesn't act in it, but he's listed as writer and director of several episodes.

Watch the trailer below:
