The series, created by ValDean Entertainment and award-winning producer, writer and actor Al Thompson (Comedy Central, SYFY) follows the fast-paced lives of three men as they navigate dating, sex and love in Harlem, NY.
Mark your calendar! Lenox Avenue, the web series mentioned about a month ago here and that stars Harlem, will be premiering a week from today, October 29. Lenox Avenue is centered on three friends as they navigate through the challenging dating scene in Harlem.
To view the online series, book mark Lenox Avenue’s website and then click on episodes. The first show for Fall will be viewed there.
The Huffington Post reports today that actor and filmmaker Al Thompson is working on a digital series “that showcases Harlem’s influential culture” in Lenox Avenue. According to the article, Lenox Avenue is centered on three friends as they navigate through the challenging dating scene in Harlem, which is a lot of territory to cover when it comes to “looking for the one.” And Mr. Thompson is from Harlem (born and raised), so he’s been witnessing its change and felt it was time for Harlem to be depicted in a positive light on the web other than the stereotypical TV series or films we have seen in the past, such as New Jack City or New York Undercover.
Harlem Grown and its co-founder Tony Hillary received a huge write-up in The Huffington Post yesterday, Sept. 28. The article beautifully explains how Harlem Grown was born and what inspired Tony to start this non profit in Harlem. I highly recommend taking the time to read: A Tree Grows in Harlem by Alex Budman. It is so worth it! And after you are finished reading the article, watch this video below. It stars Roderick, an 11-year-old student from the Bronx, who takes part in Harlem Grown.
