Russel Simmons Gives The Kids What They Want. What They Want Is Apparently A Cartoon About The Harlem Renaissance.

Pretty cool looking, actually.  

Russell Simmons new show will be based on a comic called the Harlem Shadow. While the concept and design of the comic looks pretty cool, it might not be the most accessible material for the little ones.

The series will air on Simmons’ YouTube channel, and is said to adopt a noir look for the gritty air during prohibition. The Shadow himself maintains supernatural powers, which should be used to help people write poems and jazz music.

I think this might be better suited for hungover American history teachers rather than kids on a Saturday morning. But whatever, kids are weird, and I don’t understand them, so maybe it will be bigger than Scooby Doo.
