I have an extreme amount of respect for Reagan Gomez -Preston’s hustle. She stays working. A lot of you may remember Reagan as Zaria on The Parent Hood. She’s guest starred on tons of shows and been in many movies over the years. Most recently she’s appeared in some plays, such as What Goes Around Comes Around, the movie Dysfunctional Friends, and in her role as Roberta on The Cleveland Show.
Now Reagan has stepped behind the camera and created her own web series called Almost Home, which she also stars in. The series is about a brother and a sister relocating to Los Angeles from Chicago following the death of their mother. Reagan plays Lisa, the older sister and stylist and her brother is played by real life brother in law, Dejuan, who is a singer. They are both trying to start over and begin their careers. Initially everything is fine, Lisa finds work quickly as a stylist for a recording artist and Dejuan teams up with a guitar player and becomes a street performer. That is until Lisa’s past begins to catch up with her in the form of her abusive ex-boyfriend. From there the drama unfolds.
I don’t want to give too much away, but it is a good show. It also costars Jackie Long, Wesley Jonathan, Reagan’s husband, DeWayne, and her sister in law, female rapper Queen. The episodes are fairly short, but the music is great, most of which is performed by Dejuan. The first season has already concluded, but it’s not too late to catch up. The second season is in the works and there is a campaign on indiegogo to help fund it.
Below is episode 1 to start you off. Tell us what you think of Reagan’s Ish.
