Upcoming Web Series: SUN-KISSED by Terrance Jamal and Robert King, Jr., Filming Around Austin


Austin award-nominated Playwright Robert King Jr. (“ For The Love Of Mahalia”, “ CICI”, “ The Voices Of Donny Hathaway”) partners with newcomer Terrance Jamal to bring the Black Theatre Scene to TV in their new web series “Sun-Kissed”. The new urban dictionary phrase is used to describe a person of color or African- American decent who has been tinted by the sun.

This new web series is centered around the life of gay black playwright Sonny Henderson. In the pilot Sonny struggles to juggle his work life with his busy theatre life and in the mix his barely-here sex life. By the second episode without any kind of warning Sonny is fired from his full time job and forced to make his passion his career. If the drama from his job wasn’t enough now Sonny has to deal with the drama from the stage along with the drama in his own life.

Directed by award-winning director of “The Closet” Timeca Seretti ( 2016 Gary International Black Film Fest ,Best Narrative Short winner-2016 Capital City Black Film Fest, Alamo City Film Festival Winter Shorts Winner 2016 ,2016 Global Shorts Winner , 2016 Denton Black Film Fest) This new series is sure to reveal and give a inside look into the life of black theatre through the eyes of a introverted black man.
