Schelle Purcell and Nolan Martin Promoted To Series Regulars On ‘Black On Both Sides’

Fans of two of the most duplicitous characters on Seeka.TV’s drama series ‘Black On Both Sides’ now have added reason to anticipate the show’s return in early October, as the network today has announced that both Schelle Purcell and Nolan Martin have been promoted to series regulars for the upcoming second season.

Schelle Purcell plays the beautiful, ambitious, and driven Lilith Alexander, wife to antagonist Cyrus (Scott Piehler) and a woman who believes that her goals come second to nothing or no one. Lilith appeared in two episodes of ‘Black On Both Sides’ inaugural season, including the 6th episode “The Audacity Of Hope” which was named Best Webisode by The Calcutta International Cult Film Festival.

Nolan Martin plays the aggressive and single-minded Joseph Ross, a fellow employee at Legacy Wireless and competitive foil to protagonist Anansi Moor (Alonge Hawes). A man as cunning as he is envious of those above him on the corporate ladder, Joseph will stop at nothing to achieve power and influence within the company. Martin also appeared in two episodes during the first season, most notably the 5th episode “Their Eyes Were Watching God”, which was given a 4 star review from online publications Indyred and 22 Indie Street.

Purcell, herself an accomplished auteur, is best known for writing and directing the feature film “Two Wrongs”, as well as serving as the host for the internet program “Love Line”.

Purcell is repped by HWF Productions.

Martin, whose background is rooted in theater; is best known for portraying the character of Otto from the OnStage Atlanta production of Spring Awakening. He is also a co-founder, producer, and actor for the stage improv group Tipsy Tales.

Black On Both Sides is created by Alonge Hawes, who also serves as writer, director, and executive producer. Hawes also stars as the series protagonist Anansi Moor alongside Julian Robinson (Henry Gil Scott Heron) Kiara Woods (Maya Patterson) Scott Piehler (Cyrus Alexander) and Shani Hawes (Nandi Chisholm). Jamal Mcclendon, Rodderick Fedd, Cordarol Sanders, and Shani Hawes serve as producers under A Million Stories One Pen Productions. The second season titled “Black On Both Sides: Sankofa” will premiere October 12th.
