Jaro Media’s upcoming series Silver & Gold has steadily let potential fans and viewers into its world. Poster art, an official synopsis, and previous teasers have introduced us to a diverse cast of characters including the leading protagonists whom the series, described as a “caper” by Jaro Media executives, will follow. It seems, however, that Jaro has saved the most intriguing for last.
In a surprising (though not particularly shocking) revelation, series creator & director Alonge Hawes appears in the newest and final teaser visual as a character named Ramses Coltrane. The 34 second clip, titled “Revolutionary Warfare”, sees Hawes’s character, dressed in Ghanian styled clothing, holding what appears to be a Katana sword and standing amongst a group of black conglomerates who are all dressed in dashikis. Amongst the group is actor Joshua Quinn, who was previously announced as co-starring in the series in an unknown role. Check out the teaser below.



Though Hawes was not previously linked to Silver & Gold in an acting capacity, he played leading roles in his previous digital series Blue Collar Hustle and Black On Both Sides. Hawes was named Best Actor in 2020 by the L.A Shorts Awards for his work as Anansi Moor in Black On Both Sides‘ first season.

Silver & Gold will premiere this Fall on Jaro Media. It is directed, written, and executive produced by Hawes through his company A Million Stories One Pen Productions. Jamal McClendon, Cordarol Sanders, Shani Hawes, Joshua Dennard, Quentin Williams, and Rodderick Fedd serve as producers.

Jaro Media provides on-demand streaming access to a world of African American and Afrocentric digital media including video, visual arts, books, and music. Jaro’s unique platform integrates social media, customer control, and media access into an innovative user experience.

The first series ‘Silver & Gold’ is described as “A blend of comedy, action, drama, and Afro-futurism set against the backdrop of Atlanta’s criminal underground.” The first season will consist of ten episodes, with Hawes serving as director and writer for the entire project. The series will be available via Jaro Media in Fall of this year. Quentin Williams, Brittaney Traylor, Roberto Cruz Jr, and Shani Hawes make up the ensemble cast. Hawes executive produces alongside Rich DeVaughn. Jamal McClendon, Cordarol Sanders, Quentin Williams, Shani Hawes, Joshua Dennard, and Rodderick Fedd serve as producers.

Check out the official series poster and teaser trailer below.

The second series, ‘Good Black Man,’ is described as “The journey of a man who is attempting to put his life back together after a series of unfortunate events; whilst raising his daughter and attempting to avoid falling into the negative stereotypes commonly associated with black men in modern society.” While no release date nor platform were announced for the series as of press time, Hawes will again serve as executive producer, writer and director of all episodes. Joshua Dennard, Jamal McClendon, Shani Hawes, Rodderick Fedd, and Cordarol Sanders serve as producers.

Check out the official poster art and teaser trailer below.

The history between Alonge Hawes and the Minnesota Webfest runs deep. Hawes has received 11 award nominations over the festival’s five-year history, winning 2, including Best Representation For Communities Of Color at the inaugural ceremony for his debut series ‘Blue Collar Hustle’ and Best Returning Series, for Blue Collar Hustle’s second season one year later.

Hawes was also the keynote speaker at the festival’s 2019 edition, where his sophomore series ‘Black On Both Sides’ also made its world premiere.

The Minnesota Webfest was founded by George Reese in 2017 as the first film festival dedicated to the web and digital series format. As a member of the Web Series World Cup, the festival has joined forces with two other industry film festivals–Catalyst Stories and the Duluth Superior Film Festival–to bring a week of networking, education, and entertainment extending from the web series to film and independent television. The Minnesota Webfest takes place September 26-28th in Duluth, Minnesota.

Karris Morgan (Top left), Herman Spearman (Bottom left), and Andre Eaton Jr. (Right)

Karris Morgan, Andre Eaton Jr., and Herman Spearman are joining Jaro Media’s upcoming original series ‘Silver & Gold’. The news comes on the heels of a previous announcement that the series will have its world premiere at the upcoming Minnesota Webfest.
The trio join previously announced series leads Quentin Williams, Brittaney Traylor, Shani Hawes, and Roberto Cruz Jr. Williams & Traylor will play a pair of charming and cunning thieves who recruit a team to pull off more daring and lucrative heists throughout the city of Atlanta. Hawes and Cruz complete the team; the official synopsis for the series is described below.




Charles Goldar and Bahiya Payne are the smoothest, sexiest, and perhaps the most industrious thieves this side of Bonnie & Clyde. There is no gem too guarded, no diamond too secure, or no amount of cash too vaulted for these two paramours to relieve from their unfortunate marks. So when they decide to team up with eccentric computer genius Cierra Valentine and stoic con man Sosa Gerena in attempts to pull off bigger and more daring heists, it seems to be a match made in bandit’s heaven. But all is not as it seems, as the sins of the past slowly begin to ransack the riches of the present; leading the group down a path of violence and vengeance amidst Atlanta’s criminal underground. When Charles and Bahiya are faced with a reckoning beyond even their own comprehension, they will come to the realization that sometimes love IS the crime…

While exact character details for Morgan, Eaton Jr., and Spearman’s characters are being kept under wraps, it has been confirmed that they will appear in guest star roles. They will also join Joshua Quinn, Pantheah Goode, Eduardo Bryant, Angela Van Tassel, and Roxzane T. Mims, who have all been cast in the series.

Morgan, a relative newcomer, will be making her debut in’ Silver & Gold.’

Eaton Jr. is best known for his stage work, having portrayed various character iterations such as Audrey in ‘Little Shop Of Horrors’ for Act 1 Theater and Wadsworth in ‘Clue’ for The Players Guild At Sugar Hill.

Spearman, a veteran of stage and film, has most recently played the role of Caiaphas in the short film ‘Believe.’ Other credits include the roles of Jesse in the stage rendition of ‘Coda’ and Herbert Garvey in the second season of the digital series ‘Blue Collar Hustle’.

‘Silver & Gold’ was created by Alonge Hawes, who is also credited as director, writer, and showrunner. Hawes will also executive produce the ten episode season through his company A Million Stories One Pen Productions. Joshua Dennard, Jamal McClendon, Shani Hawes, Cordarol Sanders, Quentin Williams, and Rodderick Fedd serve as producers.
