Hard Times, the new web series by Tahir Jetter about a down-on-his-luck personal trainer who takes up stripping to make extra cash, has received a boost from Issa Rae Productions

Announced a week ago, the series has been added to Issa Rae’s Youtube channel as part of her Color Creative initiative, and was relaunched yesterday, Wednesday, May 21.

Regular readers of this site will know that we’ve been covering Jetter’s work for a while, including the making-of journey for Hard Times in the S&A Filmmaker Diary Series. To read about Jetter’s web series journey, find his previous diary entries HERE
