This life we live is all about growth and for one web star that is happening exponentially! We all know Rahim Brazil as one of the actors and resident hotties of About Him: Freshman Year, but as we have mentioned in a previous interview the man has a knack for being talented at just about anything. Well now, the web star has donned two new hats–director and showrunner–with a brand new series he also wrote himself, Twisted!

Twisted is not only the brainchild of Rahim Brazil, but is now a highly anticipated web series set to debut this fall on DreamHouseTV! Check out the extended trailer Rahim’s production company, Big Dreams Productions, recently released below!

Rahim, Rahim, you can truly do anything! This trailer is nothing short of awesome. It is definitely riveting and keeps you in suspense. Most importantly, it makes us want to see more–a lot more! We see a number of new faces and a few familiar ones in 7th & Love stars, Martel Star and D.J. Gibson, and About Him Season 2: The Revolution and Raising Eli’s Chris June (that boy stays BOOKED!)

We were able to get a behind the scenes peek at the show and we have to tell you that these actors are WORKING. Each of them are talented and are bringing their A-game on set. We are definitely giving this our stamp approval before it debuts–and not because we love ourselves a good web series–but because we love a great one. We feel that even though this is Rahim’s directorial debut he will knock it out the park. You heard it here first, Twisted will leave you squirming for more!

Congratulations to Rahim and his amazing cast! We will be tuning. All you make sure you do too! Happy viewing!

[VIDEO] Elongated Man to The Rescue! “The Flash” Season 4 Casts Hartley Sawyer (@TheBigHTonight) as Series’ Newest Superhero!

hartley sawyer as elongated man

The CW has made quite the name for itself with his televised universe of DC Comics’ superheroes. First there was Green Arrow, then Flash, followed by Supergirl, then a medley of heroes in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,  and very recently Black Lightning. Between the show there are dozens of superheroes, sidekicks, love interests, super villains, and plot twists.

Well now The Flash  will be getting some super-heroic help thanks to the Elongated Man! Yep, Ralph Dibny, AKA “Elongated Man” is finally making his debut in Central City on the fourth season of the hit series.  The CW has opted to cast Hartley Sawyer (Saving The Human Race) as a recurring character in the role.

Elongated Man is a superhero with the ability to stretch his body and limbs like elastic great distances–just think Plastic Man or Mr. Fantastic, just not as powerful or as smart. He is however, an amazing detective, someone even Batman respects. Alongside his wife, Sue, he solves crimes and stops villains usually alongside The Flash. With all of the craziness Team Flash has to endure this season with mastermind super villain, The Thinker, we are sure Vibe, Julian, Joe, Iris, Kid Flash, Dr. Wells, and Jesse Quick can use all the help they can get!

THOR: ragnarok movie poster

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand faster than ever! This summer Spider-Man returned to the Big Screen and now it is time we see what is up with the god of thunder himself, Thor!

Thor Ragnarok Entertainment Weekly cover

When we last saw Thor in Avengers:  Age of Ultron  he was headed back to Asgard to gather more information on the Infinity Stones. What we thought would be a turn around trip for him has now been years, with both he and Hulk missing in action. In Thor: Ragnarok we finally find out what the Thunderer and Green Goliath have been up to! Check out the new trailer below!

via Press Release

Imprisoned, the mighty Tor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful help from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

This trailer is beyond EPIC! Thor is literally going to have to fight for his life and off this strange, alien world to save Asgard from complete destruction at the hands of Hela (Cate Blanchett), Asgardian goddess of death. In the comics she is one of Thor’s most powerful enemies, not to mention the daughter of his adoptive brother, Loki–YIKES! What we love most about this film is the fight between and team up of Thor and Hulk! They are the Avengers biggest guns and we need them to survive this ordeal and get back to Earth ASAP! As you may already know, Thanos is approaching Earth and the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will need the mightiest heroes among them to help take him down and save humanity in Avengers: Infinity War–which debuts May 2018. In the meantime we can settle for the unlikely team up of Thor, Hulk, Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), and Loki!

The anticipation continues to build as we all await the series premiere of Disney Channel’s newest sitcom, Raven’s Home!

As you already know the new series is a reboot of That’s So Raven, with Raven (Raven-Symone) and Chelsea (Anneliese Van Der Pol) as divorced mothers trying to raise their children together. One of Raven’s twins, her son, Baxter, inherits her psychic abilities and the fun–and mayhem–ensue!

via Variety:

Symoné and Anneliese van der Pol are now mothers as they reprise their role as best friends Raven Baxter and Chelsea Daniels. The dynamic duo is up to their same crazy antics, but this time, they are living under the same roof raising families of their own.

Raven’s 11-year-old twins Booker (Issac Brown) and Nia (Navia Robinson) join the cast along with Chelsea’s 9-year-old son Levi (Jason Maybaum), and Nia’s best friend Tess (Sky Katz).

While Booker is still coming to terms with is psychic tendencies, his mom, a vision veteran, remains unfazed with her son’s ability. As he comes to tell her about a vision he had, she quips back, “It’s not always about you, Booker.”

Still, family is just as important in the Baxter household, and according to Booker, they’ve got heart — and a whole bunch else.

Symoné will join longtime writer-producer partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff as executive producers on the series. “That’s So Raven” originally aired four seasons and 100 episodes between 2003 and 2007.

[VIDEOS] OWN (@OWNTV) Releases New Trailers for Season 2 of “Queen Sugar! (@QueenSugarOWN)”

Last Fall we were blown away with OWN’s original series. The fledgling cable network scored some major hits with its returning series The Haves & The Have Nots and If Loving You Is Wrong, and new series, Greenleaf and Queen Sugar. 

Greenleaf is currently on hiatus with the second half of its second season set to debut in August, but Queen Sugar is returning this June!

queen sugar bordelon siblings

As you may recall from the first season finale, Charlie is moving forward with opening Louisiana’s first Black-owned mill so she and her family can grind their sugar cane without interference all while dealing with her divorce and feeling for Remy. Her son, Micah continues to deal with the fallout from his parents’ divorce, meanwhile Hollywood takes a job far away for months needing time away from Aunt Vi. Elsewhere, Nova reels from the repercussions of her public and fledgling relationship with her White cop boyfriend, and Ralph-Angel discovered a later will left for him that gives him sole ownership of their land.

Check out the trailers OWN has released for Season 2 below:

This new season looks intense! We definitely see the Bordelons are coming up in the world. Still, the strides they have made may be threatened by their own family drama and infighting. We can definitely see a storm brewing with this will. Charlie may be making some moves, but Ralph-Angel can stop her cold if he takes things to court. Nova seems to be playing peacemaker between her two younger siblings, but we are sure she has her fair share of drama too. Especially when we see Aunt Vi having to remind them they are family.

queen sugar season 2 premiere date

Either way we cannot wait for Season 2 to premiere on June 20th and 21st as a two night event! Queen Sugar is back and we could not be happier!  Happy viewing!
