After a season of great shows, leaving us wondering what they’ll have in store when they return this fall, Power and the new hit show, Ballers, are keeping us together till that time comes.
Power, is a series about a rekindled love story filled with lies and how it will be the downfall of an illegal organization. Ghost who is played by Omari Hardwick, falls in love with his high school sweet heart, Angela played by Lela Loren, who decided to leave him in order to pursue her career as a… Not gonna spoil that one. Ghost, rarely known as, James has a wife and two kids which startles the viewers look on the person he really is when you think about his choices as a husband and father. His best friend, Tommy, is played by Joe Sikora whose from Chicago (My hometown) and steal the show most of the time for his temper and hilarious moments, like when he bought a dog for his girlfriend to make up for his constant absence (Tommy: “I bought a b*tch for my b*tch. Holly: That’s not funny…). The show’s cast is quite exceptional with known celebrities such as Naturi Naughton, from the late 90s music group 3LW, who has done a great job with her recurring role as Ghost’s wife. Curtis Jackson, heavily known as 50 Cent, produced the show and is also a series regular. If you don’t have Starz and looking for an urban thriller and drama till shows like Scandal or How to Get Away With Murder returns, Power is the show for you.
HBO brought and continues to hit us with some of the best shows on television. I could go into many well-known titles however I won’t, but this comedy-drama has become a favorite show of ours in less than a month. The Rock, also known as, Dwayne stars as the show’s main character Spencer who plays a financial advisors that’s trying to use his network to finance football team members for a company he works for. Rock’s role is trying to help young football stars manage their money accordingly instead of splurging the lot of on unnecessary merchandise. There are other characters that encircle this odd journey, John D. Washington, son of Denzel Washington, was a football player for Morehouse College and according to IMDB, Ballers is his first acting debut. His character, Ricky, is a pro-athlete who had just been dropped from his team for PDV (Public Display of Violence) and is close friends with the Rock’s character. Omar Miller and Latoya Luckett also make recurring appearance in this urban Entourage story produced by the Rock and Mark Wahlberg which airs tonight at 9:30pm. The show resembles The Game on BET, however Ballers stands on it’s own and we hope you check it out.
Urban entertainment can rise in a great way once studios find the right talent to create compelling urban stories. We are not blind to see that the people in America are ready to delve into diverse entertainment. I’m proud of the film industry which made a turn around from it’s beginning stages to work with filmmakers of all races and backgrounds. We are looking forward to being another set of diverse individuals to showcase our talent on the flatscreen soon. Till then enjoy these two great shows!
Greetings, viewers and followers! We will like to take the time to apologize for the long and unexpected break due to production issues that are almost ironed out. We’ve all been hard at getting the ‘Love Me’ project complete, so YOU, our wonderful audience, can enjoy the complete story very soon. Sorry 4 The Wait and with this apology, comes something we put together so you all can get to know the cast before we wrap up. So after much kissing up, Meet Megan who plays Brooke on ‘Love Me.’
The first time I got a chance to see Brooks in action was in True Blood as Eggs, Tara’s love interest. By the end of the season he was killed off, but it was either him or Lafayette… Long live eggs. Although his lasting time in series have been short over the years, this guy hasn’t performed in anything small. Brooks has played in shows such as Desperate Housewives, Ghost Whisperer, The Game, and Necessary Roughness, a show Mehcad had wrapped up in 2013 after a strong two year run. What’s next for the Black Hollywood star? A lead recurring role in the new Supergirl series on CBS along side the star of the show and Glee alumni Melissa Benoist who I expect are possible love interests. If you haven’t watched the new trailer, please take a look below. If you’re not convinced this show may be better than most heroic shows, then you’re probably right. Not!
Supergirl premieres this Fall on CBS.

Glee was a good show up until it’s third season and when I felt the story became vapid, I yearned for a black musical. When I first saw previews of Empire last year as Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder went on break, I wondered how good the show would be. The time came when I realized it was a musical series, similar to FOX’s recent ending show Glee, but instead of performing Billboard hits, FOX and Lee Daniels reached out to Timbaland, a well-knowned music producer in the industry, to create official music for the show. With names such as Terrence Howard, Taraji Henson, and Malik Yoba reeled most of us in for the pilot. In addition, we were also introduced to newer faces in what I like to call the Light of Black Hollywood such as Bryshere Gray, acting in a series for the first time, Trai Byers who was in 90210 on the CW and the recent highly acclaimed film Selma directed by Ava DuVernay. Lastly is Jussie Smollett whose sister many of us know, Jurnee Smollett, performed in The Skinny, the hit series Revenge and The Mindy Project.
After a season of electrifying story telling, the Lyons and Cookie will be returning this fall with a full season run containing 18 episodes. 18 episodes of Cookie is all most of us want anyway. We wish the actors and crew the best on their production and will be tuning in for season 2. For more info on Empire please visit FOX and our website to keep you updated.
