Although seasoned within the tight-nit film community, RJ Harper is ready to unveil his first original television program for the internet with KoldCast TV (www.KoldCast.TV)
, the internet's leading media network for original television programming. The Hood Lords explores the question what happens when the ruthless Mexican drug cartel's Zeta gang ambassador comes to the fictitious Hollyhood Projects and recruits some local Hollyhood projects thugs in order to train them to begin taking out some of the rival Crips, Bloods and Latin King gang members.
In the KoldCast TV deal, The Hood Lords will premiere this fall 2012 and continue into the season with a 10-episode contract, as well as the backing of some strategic advertisers that recognize the niche market The Hood Lords is uniquely capable of reaching.
