There’s a new locally produced webseries making the rounds called DARK JUSTICE. The comedic series deals with some unsettling race issues, in a way that is so over the top that it makes one think exactly how serious (almost absurd) the issue of racial profiling has become. Or has it always been that way? Thanks to modern technology, we’re noticing it a lot more, with new cellphone video capabilities and social media advancements.
“DARK JUSTICE is about the very first black cop to work in an all white police department,” says Che Holloway, who stars in the webseries (written and directed by Mike Gerbino). “It’s a comedic spin on race relations, a very different and edgy kind of webseries that’s worth a watch! All six episodes equal up to 35 minutes of your time. Ideal to watch while waiting for transit, when you need a laugh between studies, when you’re bored at home or when you just plain need a laugh. Now available on FUNNY OR DIE”.
DARK JUSTICE also features comedian Jon Caesar (plays Reverend Charles X Maxton), and Ben Jura (filmmaker and sound engineer), who are both Buffalo natives. The “absurdist satire” film is both shot and cast in Buffalo.
Over the next six days, we will feature another episode on Buffalo Rising. Enjoy the first one, and come back tomorrow for the next installment.
