As I mentioned before, it is clear that the most interesting shows, films, and representations of Black folk on film isn’t happening on our TVs, but rather our computer screens.

From “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl,” to “12 Steps to Recovery,” Black folks are taking creative control and aren’t waiting for Hollywood to share their work with the world.

Recently, a friend told me about a new show on called, “The Most Interesting BLACK Man in the World.” Created by Kevin Garnett (who has written for NBC’s Las Vegas, Everybody Hates Chris and House of Payne), Branyon Davis and Marco Martinez, “The Most Interesting BLACK Man in the World” spoofs the popular Dos Equis beer commercials.

Starring film legend Billy Dee Williams, the webseries pokes fun at hot topics like paying for sex, legalizing marijuana, homosexuality, and hair weaves.

While the show may not be for everyone, one thing is clear: Black filmmakers are taking risks and producing the films and shows on their own terms.

Check it out “The Most Interesting BLACK Man in the World” and tells us what you think!
