Cheetah In August (Official 2015 Trailer)-4

Here are promo videos for a new black gay web series called “Cheetah in August” premiering later this year. The series is directed by Anthony Newsome and written by Andrew Malone for Bawn TV, an indie internet network producing gay content.


“A former track star, August Chandler (aka “Cheetah”) struggling with his identity discovers that he possesses a power to heal through the acts of sex. [His] distorted views on love, negatively affects the people closest to him. The journey of the main character, August, from his high school years into adult life is extremely interesting and current to the times of today. Sexuality, love, religion, psychology, and self-hate are all themes that are touched on throughout this series and it definitely raises awareness to societal issues that are often swept under the rug. This project is allowing people to come face to face with situations that happen on a daily basis. Often times, when people are dealing with personal issues they tend to harbor their feelings because they fear being judged. I want people to realize the negative affects that this can cause in hopes that someone watching can find the courage to seek help and break free.” – IMDB

Check out the trailer below:

Looks a bit too melodramatic for our tastes but could still surpass most black gay web content in story and style.


Here’s a behind the scenes clip featuring members of the cast discussing the film:

On the other hand, here’s a clip of the writer discussing the origins of the project. He admits that he came up with the idea for “Cheetah in August” while horny in bed one night.

Also, you could make a drinking game out of how many times he says the word: SEX.

I don’t want to prejudge the series before I even view it, but it doesn’t make me enthusiastic to see yet another Gay web series (produced by gay men) that only depicts homosexuals as deviant sex addicts.

Well, let me clarify. I don’t mind exploring sexuality in gay films, even excessive sexuality. I just would like to see stories where sex and sexuality wasn’t the foundation for everything else.

Even if that’s ultimately not the case with this show, I wish there were more creative narrative gay projects that were deeper than hookups, sex addiction, getting a man, keeping a man and/or the hardships of sex preparation for feminine bottoms.

Can we finally get a Gay Thriller? Or a Gay SciFi Tale? Or a Gay Vampire Story?

I will admit, however, that “Cheetah in August” does appear to go into the psychology of Homosexuals who engage in risky sexual behavior, unlike most gay web series seen on the Internet. So the def get props for that if that turns out to be the case.

What are your thoughts based on the trailer?
