While the 36-year-old has found immense success on the basketball court, currently as the star power forward for the Portland Trail Blazers, he’s always had a passion to create content. Now he’s putting himself in a position to, quite literally, call the shots, by launching a production company that aims to champion inclusive narratives and voices that have gone unheard for too long.
“Storytelling brings people together, and it can serve as a vehicle for propelling larger societal conversations and understanding,” Anthony says. “We are interested in all types of stories that have the power to serve as catalysts for the change we wish to see in the world.
The group joins previously announced series star Sherri Shepherd. The show follows three former sorority sisters who lost touch after college and reunite during a pivotal point in their lives. The show marks a reunion for Mowry and Atkins, who previously starred together in the Disney series “Smart Guy.”
Campbell will play Tasha Marks, described as a hip and fabulous Atlanta restaurateur who starts trends instead of following them. She holds nothing back and is brutally honest (sometimes to a fault) with her friends, but has been avoiding a truth in her own life. She’s achieved the perfect professional life and insists that she needs no man in her life to interfere with the career she’s worked so hard to create.
Black Don’t Crack (fka Untitled Regina Hicks) follows three former sorority sisters, played by Shepherd, Atkins and Campbell, who lost touch after college and reunite during a pivotal point in their lives. They realize sometimes it’s okay to crack and when you do, no one will be there for you like your friends.
Atkins will play Nia Hillis Davis. A bougie, conservative politician’s wife who has lost touch with her more fun-loving college self.
Speaking to the virtual Ctam Winter 2021 Press Tour on Thursday, Dismuke said he hoped a renewed industry support for Black creatives and stories would usher in renewed excitement for Allblk. “While we’ve updated our brand, what remains unwavering is our commitment to representation and identifying new and emerging talent both in
In February, Mubi is proud to partner with Sundance Institute’s Indigenous Program to spotlight a collection of films made by Sundance Institute Fellows. Reflecting the support given to independent storytelling by artists of Indigenous descent, this special selection includes films such
Slated to open in theaters right when the pandemic lockdowns started, and subsequently lost in the 2020 shuffle, Cannes award-winner “The Climb” (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) is a smart comedy you might have missed. Co-writers Michael Angelo Covino (who also directed) and Kyle Marvin star as lifelong friends Mike and Kyle who may, as it turns out, be dragging each other down. A playful and occasionally ouch-y spin on the buddy comedy, this film may well be a calling card for two up-and-coming comic talents.

What series kept you guys going during lockdown?
Cameron: We watch The Umbrella Academy, of course. We watched Emily in Paris, too.
Lauren: I made him watch that.
Cameron: I got into it! I liked how you could predict what was about to happen next. The best discovery we made in lockdown was Raising Dion, which was a really good superhero show with a complex narrative. It wasn’t your standard superhero show or movie.
Lauren: We’ve been watching a lot of superhero shows and movies.
What series are you not allowed to watch without waiting for each other?
Lauren: Anything that we watch together. Once we start watching a series together, it’s like: “You continued that without me? How dare you!” That’s almost like cheating,
It is the first time that the Lafca has honored a group of films rather than a single film with its best picture award. McQueen’s anthology, which includes “Lovers Rock,” “Mangrove” and “Red, White and Blue,” is currently playing on Amazon Prime, and neither the individual films nor the series are qualifying for the Oscars or guild awards as motion pictures.
“Small Axe” will be in the running for Emmys and guild awards in the television categories as a limited series. Strangely, Lafca voters treated the anthology as individual movies in the music category, where they singled out “Lovers Rock” for a runner-up citation, but then lumped
The Lafca vote arrives on the heels of Friday’s New York Film Critics Circle announcements, which crowned Kelly Reichardt’s “First Cow” as the best film of the year, and Chloé Zhao as the best director of the year for “Nomadland.”
These awards are a chance for voters to shine a light on under-appreciated gems, or throw support behind films already gaining steam in a long awards season ahead. With the Oscars
In keeping with his annual tradition, on Friday he shared his favorite films and television series of 2020. Obama’s movie list includes “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” David Fincher’s “Mank,” Pixar’s animated adventure “Soul” and the acclaimed documentary “Time.” He also settled the argument that yes, Steve McQueen’s five-part anthology series “Small Axe” are indeed films — Obama’s No. 1 being “Lovers Rock.”
While in 2019, the former commander-in-chief only named three television shows, this year he expanded his top picks of the small screen.
“With streaming further blurring the lines between theatrical movies and television features, I’ve expanded the list to include visual storytelling that I’ve enjoyed this year, regardless of format,” he wrote on Twitter.
The comedian’s Netflix series “Feel Good” has been renewed for a second and final season at the streamer. Season 2, currently in production in London, is slated to premiere in 2021.
Whereas the first season was a co-production between Netflix and Channel 4 in the U.K., season 2 will be exclusively on the streamer. Netflix is also developing another series Martin and Objective Fiction, won in a competitive bidding situation.
As for the plot of season 2, it will see Mae & George’s (Charlotte Richie) complicated love story continue as Mae struggles to come to terms with the ghosts from her past and George tries to reinvent her present. Can they grow together or will they grow apart?
“I’m beyond excited to be able to return to the world of ‘Feel Good,’ and to see Mae and George’s love

Good Thing Productions’ Nick Batzias and Virginia Whitwell are producing, with Madman Entertainment handling theatrical.
Now shooting in Geelong, Stan’s press release announcing Nitram did not reveal what the film was about, mentioning neither Bryant or the 1996 massacre in Tasmania – only stating the project would “study one of the darkest chapters in Australian history.”
However, The Age broke yesterday that Landry Jones will play Bryant, Judy Davis and Lapaglia his parents, and Essie Davis a woman who befriends him. The
