ANDREA LEWIS of Degrassi Junion High Fame creates "BLACK ACTRESS" web series.

AND SEASON 2 WILL BE HONORED AT
AMERICAN BLACK FILM FESTIVAL

Frustrated by the dearth of options for her and her fellow thespian sistren, Andrea Lewis decided to take matters into her own hands and create her own destiny—online—with the hilariously brilliant web series aptly titled 'Black Actress.' Season Two of the series will be honored at the American Black Film Festival on June 11-14.
"When I first started 'Black Actress,' we weren't on TV like we are now," Lewis told NBCBLK. "Like, I think it was just the beginning of hearing about 'Scandal' coming out and I was excited. I was like 'Wow, this is amazing. Finally people are starting to put us in the forefront.'"
