DEMITV ANNOUNCES VILLAINS IN UPCOMING DARK ACTION COMEDY-DRAMA, BLACK SHERO.


Executives at DemiTv anticipate the action-packed Black Shero will be one of the defining original shows for the new DemiTv that will also offer syndicated content from BET, NBC, ABC, and more. “With every hero, there must be a villain; and Black Shero will have no shortage of psychotic, neurotic, and ass-kicking villains to wage war against Black Shero”, says DemiTv President of Programming, Demetrius Malone. “While fighting to restore calm in Huntsville and across the nation Black Shero will oftentimes find herself squaring off with many unique characters.”


“The concept of Black Shero first originated 2-3 years ago. It was my initial plan to offer Black Shero to the DemiTv viewers. But after I had no luck on casting, I pitched the script to Netflix. They had purchased another script from me in 2019, but they didn’t bite with Black Shero. However, a few months into production on DemiTv, Netflix finally made an offer. I turned it down because I’m in a different space professionally and spiritually. I didn’t want to put this show in the hands of someone else” says Malone.


Black Shero follows the life of Tammy Townsend (Dionne Reeves Grubbs), a 40-year-old single mother in Huntsville, Alabama. After a lifetime of unfortunate events, the show begins on the heels of Tammy’s divorce, depression, and vicious court battle for custody of her children. Then Rickey enters (Dylan Ragland).

Rickey is Tammy’s lifelong wise cracking, flamboyant, and sarcastic best friend. When Rickey convinces Tammy to get out of the house for a costume party, the games begin. On the walk home from the party, Rickey is attacked by a group of drunks shouting homophobic insults at Rickey. While in costume as a superhero, it is that moment when Tammy finally snaps. She brutally fights off the attackers. Unbeknownst that the fight was caught on camera, the next morning Tammy and Rickey awaken to mania following news reports of a full-figured superhero the internet has now dubbed, Black Shero. Rickey and Tammy get the bright idea to monetize the instant stardom of Black Shero by staging fake fights. However, after receiving the wrong coordinates for their staged fight, Black Shero accidentally stops a covert criminal act, leaving her the arch-enemy of a deadly organization behind a massive conspiracy.


Actor Patrick Purser has been cast to portray Colonel Jackson Cambridge, a recent recipient of the Presidential Medal of Honor with a secret life and agenda. Actor Reggie Jackson tackles the role of Caleb Cain Washington who assumes the identity of the deadly and dangerous Titan. Model, actress, and singer Egypt Taylor mesmerizes and terrorizes the screen as Dr. Willona Monroe, and comedian Joyce Liles is the wise cracking and sneaky Mayor Rebecca McCain.

After 8 years of airing its original content on DemiTv online and the CW television network, DemiTv nears its massive relaunch. Black Shero will premiere as a part of the 2022 relaunch of DemiTv.


Viewers will be able to watch DemiTv on Apple Tv, Roku, FireTv, Android Tv, Google Tv, not to mention Android and Apple devices, and even in their online browser.
