Block Starz Music's “This Is Dante” Star To Appear In New Cinemax Series
December 3, 2013
Block Starz Music Television, www.blockstarztv.com, has announced the release of the second episode of its original web series, THIS IS DANTE, and confirmed that the show's star, Andrew Hillmedo, will appear in a new cable show.
Hillmedo will be featured on Cinemax’s upcoming medical series, The Knick, which looks at the professional and personal lives of the staff at New York's Knickerbocker Hospital during the early part of the twentieth century. The mini series is directed by Steven Soderburgh and stars Clive Owen, Andre Holland, and Michael Angarano.
This Is Dante, a comedy series developed in conjunction with New York-based Team Elite Productions, follows the misadventures of Bronx, NY native Dante Hillmedo (Andrew Hillmedo Jr.), an American actor who most notably appeared in 2008's major motion picture Baby Mama starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who is now trying his hand at a career in rap — with little success. "This Is Dante" will highlight the fledgling actor-turned-rapper's ascent — or lack thereof — in the music industry in a series of funny webisodes that detail his career false starts and missed opportunities through a mix of behind-the-scenes footage and humorous reenactments.
The second episode of THIS IS DANTE is now available for streaming at www.thisisdante.com
