The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl has started a trend for talented writers of color to present their work in a web series. Enter industry veteran (Saturday Night Live, Girlfriends,Cosb" and 30 Years to Life) producer director and writer Vanessa Middleton (Right), who has created the comedy sketch series, Walk This Way for AlrightTV.

AlrightTV is the brainchild of Robert L. Johnson, Founder and Chairman of The RLJ Companies and Tracey Edmonds COO of Our Stories Films (Jumping The Broom, Soul Food) in collaboration with YouTube. This was Vanessa's motivation to work in new media, "I have been a fan of Tracey Edmonds for many years. I thought the creation of Alright TV and its focus on faith, family and entertainment filled a void that audiences of all ages would respond to. As a comedy writer, I saw an interesting challenge in creating a project for the faith-based community. Fortunately, Tracey and the team at Alright TV responded to Walk This Way , and so far the audience has as well. We're blessed! Walk This Way features talented actor Michael K. Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire), who shows his flair for comedy as a pastor who gives advice to parishioners for some of the most unusual problems.
