Being single has its pros and cons as far as life and dating are concerned but for the main character in a new web series, it’s problematic. Co-Created, written, and directed by Bobby Ashley and Robert McCullough, Single Man Problems is a comedy set in New York City that “follows Ronnie Maxwell, a 20 something, self-conscious gay black man, who catfishes his way into finding love and navigates difficult career and social situations. The show explores the millennial experience from the perspective of Ronnie, who grew up in Brooklyn and graduated from City College. Currently living in his best friend’s apartment, Ronnie works odd jobs while trying to pursue a career in screenwriting. His desire to find love, or even a great date, raises the awareness of color-ism within the on-line dating realm. This episodic comedy highlights universal themes at the intersection of contemporary black, gay, and heterosexual experiences.”

Season one of Single Man Problems has been picked up by HERE TV, America’s first and largest LGBTQ+ video channel. The project stars Keefe Grimes, Michel Vidal, and Shaniqua J. West, as well features a cameo from Mr. Bobby Ashley himself in one of the episodes. Besides the cameo, Ashley is also the mastermind behind the successful web series The Ave, which is currently available on Amazon Prime Video. Single Man Problems enjoyed a successful run on the 2018 summer film festival circuit, which includes the HBO New York Latino Film Festival.

After viewing the first four episodes of Single Man Problems, I truly believe that this project will be one that many will always remember. For potential viewers and anyone slightly curious, you are in for a treat! The very first scene in the pilot episode is TOO funny and definitely proves that EVERYONE should wash their hands after using the bathroom. Ronnie is a great main character because the audience will quickly root for him on his journey for love. Besides Ronnie, Single Man Problems also spotlights his friendship with Emmanuel, who tries to help Ronnie when he’s not all over his girlfriend Melinda. Unfortunately, both Emmanuel and Melinda have some kinks to workout with their relationship.
