Jaro Media’s upcoming series Silver & Gold has steadily let potential fans and viewers into its world. Poster art, an official synopsis, and previous teasers have introduced us to a diverse cast of characters including the leading protagonists whom the series, described as a “caper” by Jaro Media executives, will follow. It seems, however, that Jaro has saved the most intriguing for last.
In a surprising (though not particularly shocking) revelation, series creator & director Alonge Hawes appears in the newest and final teaser visual as a character named Ramses Coltrane. The 34 second clip, titled “Revolutionary Warfare”, sees Hawes’s character, dressed in Ghanian styled clothing, holding what appears to be a Katana sword and standing amongst a group of black conglomerates who are all dressed in dashikis. Amongst the group is actor Joshua Quinn, who was previously announced as co-starring in the series in an unknown role. Check out the teaser below.
Though Hawes was not previously linked to Silver & Gold in an acting capacity, he played leading roles in his previous digital series Blue Collar Hustle and Black On Both Sides. Hawes was named Best Actor in 2020 by the L.A Shorts Awards for his work as Anansi Moor in Black On Both Sides‘ first season.
Silver & Gold will premiere this Fall on Jaro Media. It is directed, written, and executive produced by Hawes through his company A Million Stories One Pen Productions. Jamal McClendon, Cordarol Sanders, Shani Hawes, Joshua Dennard, Quentin Williams, and Rodderick Fedd serve as producers.
