After many months which saw the platform hype the project with a series of visual teasers, posters, and stills, Jaro Media has finally announced the official release date for their first platform branded original series ‘Silver & Gold’. The Alonge Hawes created digital series will premiere with a special two episode launch on Tuesday, October 11th at 8pm on both the Jaro website as well as Jaro’s dedicated Roku channel.
While there was some discussion on whether the series would air weekly or follow the Netflix model and release the entire season at once, it seems Hawes and Jaro have elected for the former, as ‘Silver & Gold’ will air episodes every week on Tuesdays. In celebration of the release announcement, Jaro has provided the episode titles alongside the official synopsis:
“Charles Goldar and Bahiya Payne are the smoothest, sexiest, and perhaps the most industrious thieves this side of Bonnie & Clyde. There is no gem too guarded, no diamond too secure, or no amount of cash too vaulted for these two paramours to relieve from their unfortunate marks. So, when they decide to team up with eccentric computer genius Cierra Valentine and stoic con man Sosa Gerena in attempts to pull off bigger and more daring heists, it seems to be a match made in bandit’s heaven. But all is not as it seems, as the sins of the past slowly begin to ransack the riches of the present; leading the group down a path of violence and vengeance amidst Atlanta’s criminal underground. When Charles and Bahiya are faced with a reckoning beyond even their own comprehension, they will come to the realization that sometimes love IS the crime…”
