*The BlockStarz.Tv Network has debuted the pilot episode of its original comedy web series, “THIS IS DANTE”, which follows the misadventures of a young Jamaican actor from the Bronx as he attempts to break into the music business.
“‘THIS IS DANTE’ is new, it’s different, and it’s entertaining,” says the show’s star and namesake Dante Hillmedo (born Andrew Hillmedo Jr.), who’s appeared in a handful of Hollywood movies, most notably 2008’s BABY MAMA starring Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Greg Kinnear. “I believe viewers will laugh, learn, and most of all enjoy the ride as they follow the highs and lows of my journey through the entertainment industry.”
The 25-year-old Hillmedo says the series will detail his career false starts, including an ill-fated collaboration with distant cousin Slick Rick, and missed opportunities, like a nervous audition that lost him a role in the Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious, through a mix of behind-the-scenes footage and funny reenactments.
The comedy/reality-based web series, which was created by Hillmedo’s film/television company Team Elite Productions, premiered as part of The BlockStarz.Tv Network’s sneak peek at its Fall 2013 prime-time lineup and will air Wednesday nights at 9 PM EST with rebroadcasts on Mondays.
