As TV networks continue to ignore audiences of color, the web has become a bastion for shows by writers, directors, and producers of color.
By now we’re all familiar with the success of the webseries The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl and Milk + Honey, but there are so many well-written and well-produced shows on the web. From black comic book style shows, to talk and travel series, the internet has been great to up and coming filmmakers.
But what should you be checking for in 2012? The list is long and varied, but here are my recommendations for great web shows to add to your que this year.
12 Steps to Recovery
I discovered Tony Clomax’s hilarious webseries 12 Steps to Recovery last year, but the show just keeps getting better and better. It follows Parrish Diaz as he tries to recover from a broken heart. It’s been called ‘Sex & the City meets Curb Your Enthusiam’ and it’s absolutely hilarious. Check out the first episode.
