“Sistaah Friend” saves the day and a whole lot more! The new web series about a modern day, super SHEro, her sexy side kick and relentless nemesis is set to launch on http://www.sistaahfriend.com, Wednesday, June 20, 2012. One episode will also premiere on the same day at Web Series Unplugged, at 9 pm at El Cid, 4212 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90029. There is an $8 cover charge for this event. Creator Stacey McClain describes the catalyst of the incarnation of “Sistaah Friend”, “I wanted to see SHEroes that looked like people I know. Attending Comic Con a few times inspired me to create African American female characters that were not widely represented in the comic books.” Michael Davis, veteran TV Writer and Producer, co-creator of “Static Shock” and founder of Comic Con’s Black Panel encouraged McClain to create her own show. She is currently looking for sponsors for the second season.
