Don’t forget to check out this morning’s edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. In this week’s show, we go on the set of TV One’s new original movie, “Downsized” starring Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker. The two actors play a young couple who were forced into a modern “shotgun” wedding after becoming teenaged parents while putting their personal goals on hold in order to support their family. Amazingly, they manage to overcome the odds and establish a seemingly ideal life for themselves.

Check out the Saturday,  May 6 edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.  This edition features playwright Kendrell Bowman, who talks about his new musical, “An Evening with Phyllis Hyman." Atlanta Journal Constitution Video Journalist, Ryon Horne discusses his Pulitzer Prize nominated project, "Doctors & Sex Abuse." Celebrity Life Coach Jennifer Lester stops by the studios to discuss her new book, 14 Ways to Find Your Amazing; and, we finish the second part of our interview with "Greenleaf" actor GregAlan Williams.

This week’s edition of #UPFRONT is a very special one. I will be talking to the cast of Netflix’s “Dear White People,” which premiered on Friday (April 28).

 

 

The new series follows a group of Winchester University’s students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age. My featured guests include creator, writer and executive producer Justin Simien, Atlanta’s own Logan Browning, Marque Richardson and John Patrick Amedori.
