With most of broadcast television going into repeats for the summer, it’s a good time for you to catch up on more online offerings.
At this point, you have to consider Issa Rae’s The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl among the most anticipated webseries out there, and the show will start airing new content on June 14, as part of Pharrell Williams’ i am OTHER brand. If you missed Season One, don’t worry, this preview also recaps the story so far. This being ABG, be advised the vid is slightly NSFW for language, but keep an eye out for Williams himself, as things get…well, you know.
The trailer for the YOMYOMF Network, presented by the team behind You Offend Me, You Offend My Family, is also slightly NSFW, but there’s no skimping on star power. There’s a few curse words, and Kev Jumba’s tour of the YOMYOMF studio–”where poorly buffered videos come to life,” he says –quickly escalates into a CGI-powered misunderstanding. On the other hand, if you’ve always wanted to see Tyrese get hit with a bar stool or ring announcer Bruce Buffer go out Ned Stark-style, it’s worth a look.
For its part, the Latin@-oriented MiTu Network (it’s pronounced “me too”) is focusing on more practical tips in a variety of areas: Mitu’s YouTube page takes viewers to channels offering tips on everything from stopping your kids from getting hooked on video games to money matters to homemade recipes:
Finally, an update on K-Town, the Jersey Shore-esque show featuring Asian-Americans we talked about in 2010. Amoeblog’s Eric Brightwell reports that after being offered around to traditional networks, the show will instead debut as a YouTube series on July 2nd. And as the trailer shows us, the show has indeed embraced its Jersey roots, from the creative team on down.
