CHICAGO – Not many web series start out as music videos, but the new online (YouTube) drama “Deadbeat 2” was just that. Created, written and directed by Danny Froze, the made-in-Chicago story recently premiered episodes five and six in the series, which features actor Kiwaun Stoutmire in the lead role of Ronnie.

“Deadbeat 2” is a dramatic series that tells the story of a young Chicago music producer named Ronnie, who is released from prison after the murder of a drug dealer who he later finds out is his brother. The story highlights his struggle between living a new-found spiritual lifestyle and running from his deadly ties in the streets. This story developed from a music video, and is now a six episode web series featuring some of Chicago’s best talent behind the scenes and on-screen, including comedian Korporate, Dontario Washington, Richard Gallion and Jamal “Gravy” Woolard… who first gained notice as Biggie Smalls in the biopic “Notorious.”

In a Podtalk with Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com, creator Danny Froze and lead actor Kiwaun Stoutmire (Ronnie) talk about the evolution and Chicago artist collaboration for “Deadbeat 2.”


“Deadbeat 2” features Kiwaun Stoutmire, Korporate, Dontario Washington, Richard Gallion and Jamal “Gravy” Woolard. Written and directed by Danny Froze. To watch the episodes from the beginning, click here, and to visit Deadbeat2.com, click here.
