Some of our favorite coming-of-age stars are writing and producing Web series. Tatyana Ali partnered with BET for her Buppies online show, now Jaleel White, commonly known as Steve Urkel from the hit 90’s sitcom ‘Family Matters’ brings ‘Fake It Til You Make It’ to a laptop or iPad near you.
The 33-year-old star kept busy after his nine year run with ‘Family Matters.’ White starred in ‘Grown Ups’ and offered his voice to the video game character Sonic the Hedgehog in the TV show ‘Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.’ After graduating from UCLA with a degree in film and television, White created Sweet Irony Productions, the company behind ‘Fake It Til You Make It.’
Something like California’s answer to ‘How to Make it in America,’ Urkel is more Stefan as Reggie Culkin, a former child star turned image consultant who along with his three protégés hustle to make it in Hollywood.
‘Fake it Til You Make it’ premieres June 15th on HULU.com!
