Los Angeles, CA —BawnTv is a new online subscription entertainment network that was developed with the idea of promoting LGBT programs that not only featured people of color, but also storylines that were able to confront issues specific to the LGBT minority community, as well as, celebrate it. Cheetah in August is an original dramatic series starring Andre Myers as “August” and a new cast of talent that has been featured in Logo's 'DTLA' and Oxygen's new reality series 'Strut' produced by Whoopi Goldberg. The new season promises to build on the momentum of Season One in order to develop the various characters and motivations as they each struggle with their personal demons.
“We went into this season with the idea of further exploring some of those issues that haunted August, but also to develop the characters around him in order to really flesh out this world he lives in,” says Anthony Bawn (Series Director). “We have an opportunity to show what it is like for LGBT people of color within the black community, but also what it’s like to be black in the gay community. It’s important for us to show those challenges, but also to celebrate our existence in this space.”
The returning cast will continue to feature actress Judeline Charlies, Rashad Davis, and Devion Andrez Coleman along with a new collection of actors and actresses that the show’s producers believe will bring to the show a real shift in dynamics. As to what viewers can expect to see this season, the program begins with August’s new life and new job where he will begin to understand the truth about his “power” and how it affects his future. Expect to see more from Donna and Jarvis, as well as, Brennen who will reveal a secret that will prompt him to seek help.
