You know how we love web shows, right? Because entertainment geared toward African-Americans and people of color are sorely lacking, the web has become not only a resource for independent filmmakers to share their work, but often times a place where audiences of color can find interesting things that appeal to them. Web series like The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, 12 Steps to Recovery and Diary of a Single Black Mom all show that talent abounds and the audience is hungry for high-quality shows.

Recently, I came across another web series while I was getting my daily Shadow & Act fix. Although it was short, the show, “Eight-Six,” packed a punch. It served up everything I love about dramatic shows–questionable characters, ruthless businessmen, divas, a little bit of comedy, and a cliff hanger.

Check out the first episode of “Eight Six” and share your thoughts.
