Signing Off? Rico Pruitt & Signal 23 TV Part Ways!

It has definitely been a wild ride these last few months with the cast (s) of About Him! Last summer this talented group of young men took the nation by storm with a story that brought to the forefront the pain and pleasure of young Black gay men coming of age. As you already know, one of them was Rico Pruitt, who starred as “Justin,” on the hit web series, and later in About Justin. We were already enamored with Brandon Karson and Gary Lavard on screen, but adding Rico into the mix was liking adding a little extra spice to make the show “extra nice!”

However, all things come to an end eventually; and from the looks of it Rico has decided to end his relationship with Signal 23 TV! The popular web star took to Facebook and Instagram announcing not only his departure from About Justin, but the company as well. Check out his post below:

 Signal 23 TV declined to comment. We are surprised to see Rico and Signal 23 TV are parting ways, but this is not unheard of. As you recall other original About Him stars, Brandon Karson (Damien) and Rahim Brazil (Kendall) parted ways with the company in December of last year. Rico is a good friend to our site and we definitely wish all parties involved the best of luck in their future endeavors.

You can catch an in depth interview with Rico Pruitt and his new project soon on HeyMikeyATL EXCLUSIVELY!

The Man Behind Signal 23 TV! Meet “Mr.23” Himself, Henderson Maddox (@mr_23)!

“Times are changing everyday and we can’t get by with those same old ways!” 227’s Mary knew that and it still rings true today. Inclusion and representation are more important than ever before; and though Hollywood and television have made great strides racially, the gay spectrum could definitely use more diversity. Especially, if we talk about Black gay male characters. Traditionally they are over the top caricatures, not indicative of most of the community. Where are the everyday Black men who just so happen to love the same sex? Enter Signal 23 TV, a network dedicated to bringing some of the best web series the internet has ever seen.

However, it is the man behind the vision, “Mr. 23” himself, Henderson Maddox, we have to thank for all of this!

Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Henderson Maddox has become a rising star in the world of entertainment thanks to his hard work, dedication, and unyielding desire to be the best. He is often described as “the new Tyler Perry.” The formation of Signal 23 TV came about as he tired of his teaching career and sought to do what he was really passionate about. “I did it to build a fan base, to put myself out there as a director…I had done events and projects and wanted expand my brand outside of Atlanta and become bigger. So I came up with the idea to make a website–little stuff, little shows–and it all went from there…”

Our first introduction to Signal 23 TV came with the network’s flagship series, Steel River, but before its inception were a number of other shows there including cooking shows,  talk shows, comedies, and other dramas. “Steel River was the first show that really took off. It was my first LGBT series and it kind of just blew out of the stratosphere and resulted in me having this huge LGBT following…I think a lot of what it is, is there are a lot of untold stories; and there are other content creators out there, but there are very few of them create quality content…” This definitely rings true, as another series written and directed by Henderson, About Him, proved to be a runaway hit this past summer largely due to its quality and superior storytelling.

[VIDEO] HeyMikeyATL Exclusive: “About Rico!” About Him’s Rico Pruitt Speaks On Sex Tape & Redemption

rico pruitt

2016 may be the crowning jewel of the Digital Age. Never before has the world been so interconnected and intertwined, thanks to the internet and its vain child, social media! With the push of a button, or the flick of a mouse, information, like a pandemic, goes viral; and what should be a private matter becomes a free circus for all the world to see. Nothing, however, outshines these shenanigans like a sex tape! Everyone either has one, has seen one, or starred in one; and thanks to XTube and Pornhub they are the new ways we get our porn. The ramifications of these sex tapes vary; especially when you are in the limelight. For Kim Kardashian it infamously put her (and her family) on top of the world and for Mimi Faust it showed us a different side to a reality star we thought was taking the higher road.

Now, About Him’s Rico Pruitt, is the latest celebrity embroiled in what many are trying to make into a scandal.

Unless you have been hiding under a rock, then you know nearly a month ago a sex tape was leaked with Rico and his ex-boyfriend engaging in a rather private moment. Apparently his ex, desperate for money, posted the tape on his personal website with no regard to Rico’s wishes or the damage it could due to his career. One of our “minions” (HeyMikeyATL followers and informants) dropped a link to it in our anonymous tip box, trying to sell it to us for a few hundred bucks. Rico is a friend to the site and our founder, prompting us to reach out to him for commentary before breaking the story.

[VIDEO] Check Out The Teaser Trailer for Signal 23 TV’s “About Justin!”

About Him may be on hiatus until Season 2, but that gives us just enough time to dive into About Justin! As you may recall, About Justin, starring Rico Pruitt, centers on “Justin” from About Him, one of Damien’s (Brandon Karson) love interests. His debut episode,  Best Friends (Episode 10) nearly broke the internet. Refresh yourself on the hotness below!

Well now we get to see more of Justin as he navigates life, love, and drama in his own way as About Justin premieres Wednesday, December 14th.

Yep, Signal 23 TV,  has released a teaser trailer for the series , and it looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. See it below.

So yeah this trailer is hilarious, but hot! We definitely would have preferred him in Batman attire, but we digress (lol)! Rico is a very insta-famous (Have y’all seen his Instagram pics!?) and his character did bring a lot of buzz to the show, so making a spin-off series based on him was a wise move. We are not sure if any of the characters from About Him will be appearing on the series, but we are hoping for a few hot crossovers! We do know for sure Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta’s Mama Dee is playing his mother so you know things are going to be wild! Check back here soon, we might just have a few words from Rico himself!

No More “Vincent?” “About Him’s” Gary Lavard (@GaryLavard) To Leave The Hit Web Series!?

Signal 23 TV’s About Him has been a runaway hit! The LGBT web series is not only critically acclaimed, but has become a phenomenon that has spawned multiple spin-offs, About Justin and About Her, and even a tour. We definitely attribute all of this to the amazing writing and casting. The latter of which consists of some of the most attractive men we have seen in quite some time. Which is why with all of this success and steam behind the series, we were surprised to hear one of its main stars was leaving the series for good.
