Press Release from Wayne Stamps
Wayne Stamps (Moesha, The Proud Family, Phil of the Future, Just Jordan, Da Jammies) is ready to rock the world of politics – and comedy – with a highly imaginative and piercingly poignant animated series, B-Rock. Created to focus on the current state of our great country and capture the once-in-a-lifetime historic events unfolding under the leadership of our nation’s first black President, Wayne’s new series of webisodes is a no-holds-barred rendering of history in the making.
Produced by BRP 1, Wayne is working with Producer Tyree Dillihay (Pink Panther & Pals), Director Lionel Ordaz (Pink Panther & Pals) and Composer Kurt Farquhar (Lincoln Heights, King of Queens, The Parkers, The Proud Family, Moesha) on a total of 12 3-minute episodes.
About B-RockWhen Barack Obama made history in 2008 by being elected the first black president in the history of America, he single handedly took on the toughest job and the biggest responsibility in the world. But what most people, even the woman closest to President Obama, his wife Michelle, don’t know is that Barack has a secret … weapon. Beneath the relaxed, charismatic mocha skin created from a collision of Kansas and Kenya, is an alter ego that, unless regulated by the mentholated, nicotine fix of a COOL cigarette, which secretly helps Barack keep his … well … Cool … explodes into the thugged out, street hardened, ass kickin’, sh#% talkin’, take no prisoners gangsta ass American Patriot from the streets … of Hawaii … better known as B-Rock. So while the country struggles to come to a second term with Barack Obama as the most powerful man on the planet, there is no doubt that few are ready for the iron fist bump of B-Rock. But like it or not … Here it comes.
B-Rock is the animated series that blows the roof off The White House and exposes the twisted behind-the-scenes shenanigans of the 44th President of the United States of America as he and his alter ego, B-Rock, encounter an endless array of nutty characters including: Bill Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Michael Vick, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Osama bin Laden, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Tea Partiers, Clarence Thomas, Dick Cheney, Marian Robinson, Joe Biden, Illegal Immigrants, Michael Steele, William Taft, Jack Johnson, John McCain, and the most ominous figure of them all … Ronald Reagan.
So as Barack finds himself caught between B-Rock and a hard place, desperately trying to save our country and our world from utter collapse, ask yourself what B-Rock wants to know: “Who’s Your President Baby?!!”
