It is hard to believe it has been almost a year since About Him took the internet by storm. Since then the hit web series has experienced a few “growing pains,” but it has managed to stick around the for the fans that made it a runaway hit last summer. Even more exciting is Brandon Karson reprising his role of “Damien” in the series! However, just because Brandon is back that does not mean things are the same for Damien. Our boy has grown up and he is headed to his first year of college in Tyson Anthony’s About Him: Freshman Year!
From About Him to About Justin, we have fallen head over heels for web star and model, Rico Pruitt! Is it any surprise? The boy haas never shied away from giving his fans what they demand, be it hot scenes on his various web series, your daily thirst trap picture, or unwittingly that sex tape his ex-boyfriend leaked late last year. It seems now, however, all of that risque activity has culminated in our favorite boy not only baring it all but getting it in thanks to BlackBoyAddictionz.
Yep, Rico Pruitt has just dropped his first porno!
News about Rico’s porn have been swirling in our inbox for months now, and not only are they true, but we will soon be posting an exclusive interview where he is revealing all! Everything you wanna know, the who’s, the whats, they whys, and even the how comes! You can check out a few pictures and a preview from the former About Justin star’s adult film on the next page!
We have to warn you the images and footage you are about to see are graphic and mature. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED, NO ONE UNDER 18!
It’s a new day and a new debut in About Him history. Brandon Karson and Rahim Brazil are back in About Him: Freshman Year as “Damien” and “Kendall,” respectively. After the wild summer we all watched and fell for in the first season the boys are now ready to start college. This means new faces, new friends, and definitely more drama!
In case you didn’t know, the first episode of the new season dropped this morning and we already love it! Kendall is back up to his old tricks, and his powers of seduction have only gotten better. Meanwhile, Damien is determined to blaze his own path on campus; steering clear of his brother and Vince– and men in general. That may be a lot harder than he realizes when he meets a “friendly” senior.
Life goes on and so does Signal 23 TV! The network that brought you About Him, Climax, About Justin, and Steel River has done it again with their newest web series, Tex Brown!
The series is yet another spin-off of About Him, based on Tex (Tripp Ali), the older guy from the first season of the hit web series who taught Damien (Brandon Karson) how to give oral sex (coughing) and that his life cannot be all about Vince (Gary Lavard). As you recall, in the season finale the Tex was arrested for threatening to kill a man for gay bashing. Although Damien, Justin (Rico Pruitt), and Kendall (Rahim Brazil) avoided prosecution, Tex has done ten years in prison and is only now being released on parole! Naturally, the world around him has changed and he struggles to find a place in it. Tex must ultimately decide to face the demons of his past and move on with his life, or allow them to consume him and send him back to prison!
Tyson Anthony’s About Him: Freshman Year is already setting itself up to be a mega-hit?
How? With a super trailer that would make any of the Love & Hip-Hop previews blush! As we have mentioned in previous posts, Brandon Karson is BACK as “Damien,” along with Rahim Brazil as “Kendall,” (“Hey cuzzo!”) and a few new handsome faces that have us all going gaga!
The second season of the series is set in Damien’s first year of college and it looks anything, but typical. Damien is out on his own away from Vince and his big brother, Marion, but that does not mean he is out of trouble! The super trailer is going to leave you wanting to see more, know more, and of course binge watch these episodes like a new Netflix Marvel series! Check it out below!
In the words of a girl stuck in the nineties, “Aww sookie, sookie now!” Tyson Anthony and Bawn TV really are a match made in heaven. If this series is anything like Tyson’s others (Entercourse, Raising Eli, Pharm: The Series) then we already know we will truly be entertained. The cast looks amazing, Brandon and Rahim are good in just about anything together–their chemistry and brotherhood on and off screen is admirable. Desmond Fletcher is a welcomed addition to the cast. We loved him in Pharm and on Raising Eli. He definitely has the “skills” to keep us tuned in.
You can check out my interview with the entire cast about this upcoming season by clicking here. Just be sure you are tuning in next month as we bring you interviews with the guys. There will be lots to discuss, watch, review, interview–and as always–tea to spill, as the kidz would say. Leave your thoughts on the super trailer below! Are you excited for About Him: Freshman Year?!

Signal 23 TV continues to deliver some amazing stories to its viewers. Last summer it brought us About Him, and Fall of last year it debuted Steel River: When Were Young, a prequel to the original Steel River series that put Signal 23 TV on the map! Faithfully and diligently, we have been tuning into see watch William (Will), Kadoe, Ivan, and Addison ten years in the past as they grow to become the men we know and love. Beyond the drama, sex, intrigue, and craziness; viewers are really getting a taste of what it means to come of age while being Black and gay.
Just when we thought the series could not get any wilder though, a new character, played by Sherrod Willis, has been tossed in the mix!
Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan and growing up in Chicago, Sherrod is an amazing addition to Steel River: When We Were Young. Besides being the newest cast member of the series, he is a rising star who has dreamed of the spotlight since his freshman year in college. “I was in a performing arts group back in Chicago and we did little skits and stuff like that, or promotional videos and I think I took an interest in it then. I never really knew what do or where to go so when I moved down here to Atlanta I saw a web series [Kaleidoscope} I wanted to be a part of and went from there….” Sherrod’s enthusiasm and willingness to go after his dreams stems from his desire to be the best version of himself possible. “I always knew I w anted to be something great–somebody great–but I know that depends on me…” Indeed, Sherrod’s raw talent shined through on his debut episode, “Due Process,” as his character, “Jackson,” not only forced Will (Alex Jante) to confront his sexuality, but seduced and coerced him in one of the hottest sex scenes in web series history!
As “Jackson,” he portrays the soldier brother of Will’s girlfriend, who as the series eludes to in another conversation is “trade.” (via Urban Dictionary; A man who messes around with other men, but no one would ever know by looking or talking to him. Used by gay black men to identify masculine gay men or DL Brothas.) Sherrod goes on to state ,“You’re gonna love him [Jackson], he’s a different type of dude, and I love playing him, and the waves he’s gonna make in the story line kinda make you jump!” Although he admits his episode’s sex scene was hot, he feels the scene between Ivan (Rion Deshon) and his trade love interest (Tripp Ali)was hotter. “They really went in on that. It was just so realistic, like I know people who have told me that they’ve hooked up in a shower or bathroom, or know someone who did. Rion and Tripp are amazing actors, so i gotta give it up for them [he laughs].”
About Him just cannot be stopped and we are not complaining. As you already know the second season of the hit web series has spawned two very different shows on two different networks; Bawn TV with Tyson Anthony and director, Anthony Bawn, and Signal 23 TV with Henderson Maddox. We are dedicated to complete coverage of both series and our very own “Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning, was invited to meet the cast of Tyson Anthony’s About Him: Freshman Year.
The series stars Brandon Karson, reprising his role of “Damien” from the first season; alongside Rahim Brazil as “Kendall.” Together the two head a new cast of characters as Damien heads off to college and makes new friends, new enemies, and deals with lots of scandal!
Check out Mikey’s interview with amazing cast below!
About Him: Freshman Year is rumored to be released on February 28th so make sure you subscribe to the series via Bawn TV and catch it on Amazon Prime! There will be some amazing individual interviews with each cast member coming soon to our site. Make sure you are in the mix! This “Freshman Year” is going to be breathtaking!
