What is BWNG?
Brothers With No Game
Game: noun The ability to attract the opposite sex through persuasive discourse and / or effortless show of interest.
Set in London, 'Brothers With No Game – The Web Series' follows the social and romantic lives of four friends: Theo, Dorian, Junior and Marcus. The 20-somethings come to terms with the responsibilities and dilemmas that revolve around work, family, friendships and most notably, women. Their distinctive personalities and ever-changing love lives are paralleled with a strong friendship and one evident, common, trait…they have no game.
One of the more prominent arguments concerning the lack of diversity on our screens has been the discourse surrounding the low representation of ethnic minorities on TV and Films. Although we feel that is a compelling argument, we (BWNG) seemed more concerned about overcoming the almost non-existence of the progressive young adults in the same mediums, particularly in the sitcom arena.
If our TV screens were anything to go by, one would be allowed to assume that relationship issues were a topic only confined between four 40+ women in New York, or that maybe the male sexual handicaps of shows like 'The InBetweeners', becomes obsolete past the teenage years. Understanding that to not be the case, coupled with the social and economic pressures facing us all, we feel that the narrative of a group of 20 something ethnically diverse males going through a 'quarter-life crisis' deserves to mark its comedic stamp on the public's conscious.
Who are BWNG?
The web series is the brain child of the UK bloggers JC, The Yak, Don Kwelu and Maverick (@TheBWNG). The quartet make up the Brothers With No Game blog, where four friends deconstruct, discuss and deliberate thoughts and topics formally kept in the confines of a London living room. Launched in Oct 2010, the website has gone on to receive over 400,000 visitors and are now teaming up with Socialize Media to bring to you the web series.
