The cast and crew of the upcoming web series Blue Collar Hustle has announced that the series will premiere Sunday, February 12th, on YouTube. Creator Alonge Hawes made the announcement on the series Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as released a new teaser for the show. Of the release date Alonge stated, “February as Black History Month, has extreme importance to us as a cast and crew of African Americans who are looking to join in league with those who are attempting to rewrite the black American story. We feel that it is symbolic to show the world what it is that we have to offer in portraying black men and women as upwardly mobile and determined individuals striving for meaning and purpose in their lives, in the month that we celebrate black culture and contribution.”
Blue Collar Hustle is described as a tale of four 20-something black men who, instead of coming of age, experience a “coming of culture”, while living in Stone Mountain, Ga. They are attempting to break into Atlanta’s booming music scene while juggling the responsibilities of careers, families, and the realities of existing as black men in modern day society.
The series will be directed by Geoffrey Henderson and produced by his film company Geoffrey’s Planet LLC. Alonge Hawes serves as creator, writer, and executive producer. With Roberto Cruz, Howard Woodburn, and Shani Hawes as producers.
The series stars Quentin Williams as Quan Banneker, an up and coming Hip Hop artist looking to gain exposure and recognition for his debut project. Alonge Hawes as Ajani Garvey, a manager of a tech-services company looking to reclaim his own creative spark. Howard Woodburn, Ajani’s best friend and right hand man who never hesitates to speak the truth; as harshly as possible. Shani Hawes as Asha Luna, a co-worker of Ajani and Quan’s who has become dissatisfied with both her job and life trajectory. Tijuana Agnew as Anaya Bassett, Ajani’s independent and resourceful girlfriend, who balances her job and actress aspirations with the raising of the infant daughter she shares with Ajani. And Roberto Cruz as Jose Torres, Quan’s best friend and musical collaborator who pushes him to reach for greatness.
