AfroLife, a subscription streaming service for “curated African American and Afro Latino content,” plans to launch early in 2018 with “movies, shows and original content that define who we really are: trendsetters, tastemakers, kings and queens.”

So far, though, all we have to go on is an agreement with Google’s Computer Science in Media to show season one and co-produce season two of the series God ComplX.

The first season, focusing on the life and relationships of a 20-something black female coder (played by social media star Shameless Maya), launched on YouTube in November 2016.

AfroLife said the second season will go even deeper in exploring underrepresentation of black women and the LGBTQIA+  community in computer science.

For more information about the new subscription service, visit AfroLife.tv. An annual subscription costs $119.40 (or $9.95 a month), but you can currently subscribe at half price, or $59.70, by entering your name and email address on the home page.
