SUPERNATURAL DRAMA WICKED CITY TO DEBUT WINTER 2022 ON AMC NETWORKS STREAMER ALLBLK

New York, NY (June 8, 2022) – ALLBLK, AMC Networks’ popular streaming service for Black TV and film, today announced that new sci-fi drama, Wicked City, from executive producers Tressa “Azarel” Smallwood and Donte Lee, will debut this winter. The new series, comprised of six, 30-minute episodes follows five urban witches who push their supernatural powers to new heights after uncovering dark secrets and accidentally entering the world of the forbidden.

While living their best life in Atlanta, four young, chic, modern-day witches, Jordan Davis, Mona De La Cruz, Angela Harris, and Sherise Baker make the acquaintance of Camille, a naturally powerful witch who is oblivious to her gift. Reluctantly, Camille joins the women for a spell, but things take a menacing turn resulting in an accidental death. The witches quickly perform a forbidden resurrection spell, however it is too late, as a dark sinister being is brought back from the other side. Now, between their complicated personal lives, unearthed secrets of the past, and attempting to defeat a powerful wraith, this coven is in for the most dangerous ride of their lives.

Leading the cast is Vanessa Bell Calloway (Shameless) staring as Tabitha, the owner of Charm City Awakening and longtime mentor to the coven; Taylor Polidore (Snowfall) plays the role of Camille, a dance teacher who returns to her hometown and unaware of her powers; Shaquita Smith (The Couch) stars as Jordan, who works at the fictitious occult shop Charm City Awakening; rarely seen without best friend, Mona, played by Mercedez McDowell (The Resident), is currently working 3 jobs to make ends meet; Chantal Maurice (P-Valley) portrays Angela who has an affinity for selling magically enhanced psychedelics and other drugs; Chanel Mack (The Harder They Fall) plays the role of Sherise who is the most experienced of the coven and with magic; Rhonda Morman (Sister Swap: Christmas in the City) portrays Claudette, a formerly powerful witch who is intent on regaining the powers that were reluctantly taken from her; Malika Blessing (The Lost Souls Café) starring as Caden, a mysterious stranger who the coven believes is a threat. Rounding out the ensemble cast is Columbus Short (True To The Game) staring as a dangerous sorcerer known as The Handler and Rolonda Rochelle (Chicago Fire) staring as Kendria, Camille’s mother who warns her of the dangers lurking ahead.

“Tressa and I have worked together over the years on various projects, and I’m delighted we’ve reunited once again on Wicked City,” said Brett Dismuke, General Manager, ALLBLK & WE tv. “As content offerings continue to evolve at ALLBLK, this supernatural drama delivers something different we are confident will resonate with subscribers.” Added Nikki Love, SVP, Development & Production, ALLBLK, “The storyline of Black witches is something we hardly see, if ever, within the wildly popular supernatural, sci-fi and fantasy genre. The addition of Wicked City to ALLBLK’s continuously growing roster provides diverse Black representation in an otherwise underrepresented space. We look forward to being a part of the narrative.”

Executive producer and showrunner Tressa “Azarel” Smallwood added, “My goal has always been to give emerging, talented Black writers opportunities to showcase new and engaging stories. When writers Kristin Iris Johnson and Serena M. Lee approached me with the concept for Wicked City, I knew we had something new and different that hadn’t been seen on TV before. Wicked City not only showcases a broader diversity of Blackness, it fills the gap of the kind of Black supernatural content that so many in our community have wanted to see but have been perpetually deprived of. I am so excited to work with Brett and ALLBLK on bringing this kind of new content to a platform that unapologetically centers Black stories.”

Currently shooting in Atlanta, GA, Wicked City is executive producer by Tressa “Azarel” Smallwood of Mega Mind Media. Donte Lee will also serve as executive producers with Kevin Key who will produce and Dale Lewis who will direct for Relentless Studio. Melissa LLewellyn-Alston will serve as producer. General Manager, Brett Dismuke, and SVP of Development & Production, Nikki Love will serve as executive producers for ALLBLK.

Joyful Drake, Caryn Ward Ross, Erica Mena, Candiace Dillard Bassett and TS Madison to Star

New York, NY (June 2, 2022) – ALLBLK, AMC Networks’ popular streaming service for Black TV and film, today announced that seductive new drama, Hush, from creator Angela Burt-Murray (Games People Play), will join its rapidly evolving programming lineup this fall. Comprised of eight, 35-minute episodes, the new series tells the story of female protagonist Dr. Draya Logan, a top marriage and sex therapist, TV personality and best-selling author who finds herself entangled in a web of lies, sex and murder that could cost her everything.

Dr. Logan has built a successful practice discreetly catering to the between-the-sheets lives of her rich and famous clientele and publishing the definitive works on modern relationships and sexuality. With an A-list rolodex, this “relationship fixer” juggles midnight house calls for trysts gone wrong, destroys salacious content before it hits the gossip columns and hosts therapeutic couples’ retreats for those in dire straits. Dr. Logan is the gatekeeper of everyone’s secrets, but after she launches her ‘Penthouse Project,’ the deadly secrets of three women threaten her career and her life when a dead body is found, and the police identify her as the primary suspect.

Joyful Drake (P Valley, The Quad, Let’s Stay Together) leads the cast as Dr. Draya Logan; Caryn Ward Ross (ALLBLK’s Monogamy, CW’s Jane the Virgin, FOX’s Lucifer, Disney’s Liv and Maddy) will play Jordan Vincent, a desperate housewife who’s about to launch a questionable business to save her family from financial ruin; Erica Mena (Love & Hip Hop, Scared Famous, Sacrifice) plays Gina Rodriguez, a calculating aspiring Reality TV star married to a professional baseball player who yearns for the spotlight; Candiace Dillard Bassett (The Real Housewives of Potomac, The Christmas Lottery) stars as trophy wife Syleena Gibson who keeps her marriage to her high-powered attorney husband spicy by fulling his fantasies, alone and with others, despite the dangers; and last, but never least, TS Madison (The TS Madison Experience, Zoya) joins as Mona Dee, a ruthless kingpin of a drug family and strip club owner running her business with an iron fist.

“Hush personifies the mysterious, captivating and edgy programming our subscribers crave as we continue to push the envelope with our content offerings at ALLBLK,” said Nikki Love, SVP, Development & Production of ALLBLK. “Honoring our commitment of providing a home for Black creatives in front of and behind the camera, we are excited to partner with Angela Burt-Murray to bring this fast-paced, smart and risqué drama to life.”

Creator and executive producer Angela Burt-Murray added, “From the therapist looking to write her comeback story and a desperate housewife fighting to save her family to the baller’s wife playing with fire and a street-smart baddie making boss moves, the women of HUSH are sexually empowered and driven to succeed no matter the cost. I’m thrilled AllBLK embraced this new twisty, sexy drama about four dynamic women who will stop at nothing to get who and what they want.”

Shot in and around the Washington DC metropolitan area, Hush is created by Angela Burt-Murray and written by lead writer Angela Burt-Murray, Chazitear and Bree West. Bree and Chuck West of OCTET Productions will serve as showrunners and executive producers alongside Brett Dismuke and Nikki Love for ALLBLK.

With the help of her friends, Misha Taylor (Jessie Woo, Wild ‘N Out), a teacher who works hard and plays even harder; Reign Moore (Kendall Kyndall, Social Society, Games People Play), a recently cut off trust-funder forced to find alternative revenue to pay the bills and Shyra Clemons (Jenna Nolen), a grad student who believes she has found the perfect man; Mahogany must decide if she will stick to her preference of being the one and only – or step out of her comfort zone and learn to play number two.

Along the way, they create a historic moment in the Palestinian and Jewish underground scene. *Arabic/Hebrew Language Drama
