Billy Sorrells has been described as the quintessential perfect storm. Since setting up shop in Los Angeles this year, the actor, stand-up comic and independent filmmaker has emerged as an entertainment goldmine and the most talked about triple threat in La-La Land.Sorrells is best known for his role as “Peaches” in the popular “Sh-t Black Girls Say” series of Youtube parodies, which have amassed a staggering 15-million total views and counting. With the door of opportunity flung wide open to develop more groundbreaking content, the break out artist and businessman is partnering with Entertainment giant Black Entertainment Television (BET) on a new project destined to become the virtual jewel in his extensive repertoire.The web series, called Office Code BET is the brainchild of Sorrells and writer/comedian Donte Barrett. The two found a way to transform typical workplace comedy shtick by adding a new dimension of original, humorous themes and shrewdly creative writing to introduce a flagship online sketch series that cleverly mocks the most outrageous, unacceptable office behavior. BET expects the revolutionary web-based show will ride the groundswell of successful projects already developed by Sorrells’ Aerion Studios, including the “Press Play” initiative also developed for BET. The interactive, sharable content series is the first of its kind and if the demand for “Press Play” is any indication, Sorrells and BET have another blockbuster hit on their hands. The Viacom-Owned cable network is placing major bets on Sorrells’ talent, tapping him as a correspondent on their Red Carpet during BET Awards 2012. His track record so far all but guarantees BET will reap lofty returns on every investment.

With so much at stake, the world will undoubtedly be watching as Sorrells continues to shatter traditional ideas about film-making and online production. He is currently in talks with entertainment website Mevio/ Bite Size TV to develop a show that merges the savvy of digital culture with the glitz of Hollywood, distinctly packaged in theatrical features. Sorrells has also inked a deal with video-entertainment network Machinima, where gamers around the world will enjoy original programming, game trailers and news. His ever-expanding resume also includes radio show, Skits and Bits which airs on Jamie Foxx’s Foxxhole. The Sirius Satellite show reaches an average 2.3 million listeners.

Meantime, the gifted comic and celebrated You Tube phenomenon, co-stars in the movie “Because I Love You”, written, and produced by Joe Elmore. Sorrells makes his big screen debut in this provocative crime drama and romantic thriller. Separately, a partnership with Houston-based promotion company Sol-Caritas and its founder Carlos Wallace helped Sorrells seal a lucrative contract for his “Dirty Sexy Funny” stand-up show to feature exclusively at both the Arlington and Houston Improv comedy clubs.

With so many noteworthy achievements under his belt, it’s no wonder Billy Sorrells is fast becoming a household name, fielding requests from directors and producers throughout the industry eager to hitch a wagon to this sensation’s rising star. Yet through it all, Sorrells miraculously manages to stay grounded and quite humble. Attributes that set this Southern gentleman apart as the ideal 21st century Renaissance Man.
