"Lenox Avenue" is a new webseries based in Harlem, New York City that characterizes three men and their pursuits in sex, love and dating. The three leading men are best friends as well as professionals in their field who struggle with the challenges of balancing personal life and their careers.
Lenox Avenue was created by ValDean Entertainment, the same production company which was founded by the Royal Tenenbaums and star of "Lenox Avenue", Al Thompson. The episodes all showcase the multicultural diversity of Harlem in addition to its rich history in conjunction with story lines about the engaging characters.
