I realize this post may be a little late, but I couldn't resist writing about Tatyana Ali's new project. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum traded in Hollywood for Harvard and graduated with a degree in anthropology in 2002 causing her to retreat from the spotlight for a few years. Well Tatyana is back and she is starring in what is sure to be one of the guiltiest pleasures since Elizabeth Berkley in Showgirls.
'Buppies' is a new made for the web sitcom that is a cross between Baldwin Hills, Sex and The City, and The DL Chronicles. Did you really think I was just excited about Tatyana and not a possible gay storyline? LOL! Little Ashley Banks has grown into a beautiful young lady but she's not enough to hold my attention.
It looks like Buppies will include a couple of gay characters who seem to be living on the down low from the two minute teaser floating around online. It remains to be seen how these two characters will be written. Hopefully they'll be fully developed and rely less on the stereotypical traits we've seen in the past.
Buppies was shot on location in Malibu and Los Angeles and is scheduled to debut online this fall. I think we should brace ourselves for the worst and maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised. Will you be watching?
Check out the teaser below.
