Press Release: What the World Needs Now is a ‘Sistaah Friend’ – New Web Series Puts a Modern Day Spin on the African American Super SHEro

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

“Sistaah Friend” (Khalilah Joi Dubose) is a modern day super SHEro! She mends, cultivates and encourages friendships…with the help of her magical purse. Like some Sistaahs, she loses her powers when she allows negative forces to stand in her way. Her trusty, yet skeptical, side kick is Diva Chick(Brittany Phillips) and while she’s a friend to the end, she’s still a diva. Her nemesis, Ymene (Jennifer D. Johnson) does a good job of stirring up negative energy as a reporter who is always looking for a way to discredit Sistaah Friend.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2012

“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.

SistaahFriend is almost here!

And, I’m extremely excited!!!! (You can generally tell by the exclamation points).

Just finished shooting episodes of SistaahFriend! And, we had so much fun.

Can’t wait to introduce you to my modern day African American super shero (no, shero ain’t a typo) and her crew– SistaahFriend, Diva Chick and Ymene. My cast was excellent, and so was the crew as we shot at damn near all day at THE J SPOT, last Saturday. There were a few celebrity guests in the house (who had everybody cracking up). And, now I can’t wait to finish editing it, as I know I got some good shots. So, keep checking back as SistaahFriend could be here any day now….

A special thanks to everyone for your hard work and support!

Continued blessings!

Sistaahly,

Stacey

Sistaahs Are Headed to Comic Con!

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Sistaah’s are headed to Comic Con!

Okay, this year, I’m ready!!

This story starts about 6 years ago, when I met the M.O.T.U. (master of the universe), Mr. Michael Davis. When I first met him, I must tell you that I had never met anyone with such a huge ego, and today I can tell you, I still haven’t… but know that, I have mad respect for the bruthafriend.

I met Michael Davis while working on “The Tom Joyner Show” and I must tell you that we damn near hated each other. And, even though we’d find creative ways to diss each other in that writer’s room, we both knew that walking away from a paycheck because of an evil co-worker was not an option for either of us. Well, every year since we met, Michael has invited me to Comic Con. And, the first time I went (July 2006) it changed my life. To make a long story short, I’m not quite sure where it turned around, but despite our clashing personalities, we have developed a mutual respect for one another and now there is a possibility that we may work together – again.

Since the beginning of this year, Michael and I have been collaborating, as he guides me on the development of “SistaahFriend,” the animated series. And, what I’m most excited about is possibly be introducing “SistaahFriend” on the BLACK PANEL – at the 40th Anniversary of Comic Con!!! I am so excited! It’s like a dream come true to be entrenched in the throws of the comic book world. Because, as Michael says… Comic Con is HUGE! (in his pronunciation, he drops the H).

Once I have a few details in place, Michael will let me know if announcing SF on the Black Panel will happen.   Know that I’m diligently working on it, trying to make it happen.

I’m asking that you please stay tuned to this site, because in the next few weeks, I MIGHT be making that announcement. BTW, the Black Panel, is hosted by none other than– the Master of The Universe, Michael Davis!

Major THANK YOU, for checking back and a HUGE thank you to my stubborn, but cool azz friend, Michael Davis. You can find him at www.michaeldavisworld.com

Sistaahly,

Stacey
