SYNOPSIS: Based on the true story that will inspire the world, “King Richard” follows the journey of Richard Williams, an undeterred father instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, who will end up changing the sport of tennis forever. Driven by a clear vision of their future and using unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons. “King Richard” is a profoundly moving film that shows the power of family, perseverance and unwavering belief as a means to achieve the impossible and impact the world.

INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY: King Richard highlights one father’s relentless drive and unapologetic vision to change the game. Determined to do things his way, Richard Williams made a plan and defied the odds by raising not one, but two of the greatest athletes of all time: Venus and Serena Williams (who executive produced the film alongside their sister Isha Price).

POWERFUL CREATIVE TEAM:Directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green and written by Zach Baylin, the producers are Tim White and Trevor White under their Star Thrower Entertainment banner, and Will Smith under his Westbrook banner. Isha Price, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith, Adam Merims, Lynn Harris, Allan Mandelbaum, Jon Mone and Peter Dodd serve as the executive producers.

RELEASE PLAN: The film will be released in theaters in the US on November 19th and on HBO Max via their Ad-Free plan for 31 days following theatrical release.


Inspired by a true story, QUEENPINS is an outrageous comedy about a bored and frustrated suburban homemaker, Connie (Kristen Bell) and her best pal JoJo (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), a vlogger with dreams, who turn a hobby into a multi-million dollar counterfeit coupon caper. After firing off a letter to the conglomerate behind a box of cereal gone stale, and receiving an apology along with dozens of freebies, the duo hatch an illegal coupon club scheme that scams millions from mega-corporations and delivers deals to legions of fellow coupon clippers. On the trail to total coupon dominance, a hapless Loss Prevention Officer (Paul Walter Hauser) from the local supermarket chain joins forces with a determined U.S. Postal Inspector (Vince Vaughn) in hot pursuit of these newly-minted “Queenpins” of pink collar crime.

(L to R): Joy Bryant and Henry Simmons

LOS ANGELES – OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today that Joy Bryant (“Parenthood,” “For Life”) and Henry Simmons (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “NYPD Blue”) have been set to star in season two of award-winning creator Ava DuVernay’s anthology drama series “Cherish the Day,”
from ARRAY Filmworks and Warner Bros. Television. Production will begin this month in New Orleans, with the new season expected to debut in 2022.

“Cherish the Day” is an anthology series that chronicles the relationship of one couple, with each episode spanning a single day. In season two, the rekindling of a romance is told — the love story of Ellis (Henry Simmons) and Sunday (Joy Bryant), who fell in love in high school but find themselves reunited in beautiful New Orleans. Ellis is a former basketball player who is now a single father of two, and Sunday is a vegan celebrity chef on the cusp of fame. Each episode of the season-long narrative unfolds in a single day to reveal significant moments in a relationship that compel us to hold true to the ones we love, from the extraordinary to the everyday.

Joy is best known for her NAACP Image Award-nominated role as Jasmine in the long-running series “Parenthood,” and recently starred in the ABC series “For Life” opposite Nicholas Pinnock and Indira Varma. Joy has appeared opposite Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on HBO’s Emmy Award-nominated drama “Ballers,” was a regular on the critically acclaimed Amazon original series “Good Girls Revolt,” and guest starred in the final season of HBO’s award-winning series “Girls.” Her film credits include “About Last Night,” “Hit and Run,” “Bobby,” “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” “The Skeleton Key,” “Carmen: A Hip Hopera” with Beyoncé, and Denzel Washington’s directorial debut, “Antwone Fisher.”

Simmons most recently starred in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” for ABC, and previously starred in the final six seasons of the landmark ABC drama “NYPD Blue,” created by Steven Bochco and David Milch. He was also a series regular on the CBS legal drama “Shark” and ABC comedy “Man Up.” Simmons starred in the feature film “No Good Deed,” opposite Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, for Screen Gems. He also starred opposite Henson and Michael Clarke Duncan in “From the Rough,” and opposite Robin Williams in the independent film “World’s Greatest Dad.” He was named Best Actor at the 2007 American Black Film Festival for his performance in “South of Pico.” Additional film acting credits include “Madea’s Family Reunion,” “Something New,” “Taxi,” “Are We There Yet?,” “The Insurgents,” “A Gentleman’s Game,” and “Above the Rim.”

The first season of “Cherish the Day” starred Xosha Roquemore, Alano Miller, and the legendary Cicely Tyson, and debuted in February 2020. On average during its seven-week first season, the series ranked #1 in its time period across all of cable with African American women, households, and total viewers.

The DuVernay-led series achieved full gender parity with a production crew of more than 50% women, including 18 female department heads, an initiative DuVernay will continue in season two.

“Cherish the Day” is produced for OWN by ARRAY Filmworks and Harpo Films in association with Warner Bros. Television. Ava DuVernay, Paul Garnes, Raynelle Swilling, Teri Schaffer, and Oprah Winfrey serve as executive producers. Swilling, who won the 2020 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Breakthrough Creative (Television) for “Cherish the Day,” and Schaffer are co-showrunners of season two.

This Camping, Glamping, Jamming All-Night Concert will be the Summer Celebration Event you’ve been waiting for all year!

Celebration Event you’ve been waiting for all year!


This Camping, Glamping, Jamming All-Night Concert
set for July 17th will be the Summer Celebration Event
you’ve been waiting for all year! 

Produced by D.A.T. Distribution and Tours, headed by entertainment maverick Mark Skeete, THE ATLANTA CAMPING & GLAMPING DIVE-IN CONCERT is going to change the game and allow music lovers and concert goers to safely return to the enjoyment of music, with the covering being blown off of the venues that we haven’t re-entered post COVID-19. With an assemblage of hot and hilarious comedians and a musical smorgasbord of artists from R&B, jazz and all of the music of the Caribbean, this power-packed event will prove to be iconic because it has never happened before! “This is going to be the music of Black America in Atlanta meeting the whole scope of music from the islands. It’s gonna be FREAKNIK VERZUZ CARNIVAL! HIP-HOP VERZUZ DANCEHALL! It is ATLANTA VERZUZ THE WEST INDIES and all those who are fans of great music and entertainment will be declared the winners! THE ATLANTA CAMPING & GLAMPING DRIVE-IN CONCERT will be a multicultural get-together for people who love music, love entertainment and who need to know that they are safe to enjoy it all outside, where transmission is all but eliminated and where they are gathered with the people they have already been with in their pods and personal spaces. So they can get to the PARTY!”

The brainchild of Skeete, who has been in the music, television, film and concert landscape for decades (having worked with everyone in entertainment from superproducer Dr. Dre to TV and film director Ted Demme, and who helped to establish some of the current-day titans of the industry), this innovative Drive-In
Concert, hosted The Georgia International Horse Park, will feature such musical talents as R&B supergroup Surface (with their #1 hits “Shower Me with Your Love,” “The First Time” and their monster jam “Happy”) and The Rude Boys will take the stage with their #1 smash hit “Written All Over Your Face,” along with the jazz stylings of the beautiful Julie Dexter and the smooth saxophone of Trey Daniels, along with comedians and a Caribbean line- up sure to turn the ATL into the spot to be, all night long! THE ATLANTA CAMPING AND GLAMPING DRIVE-IN CONCERT
will go from 6PM to 6AM and after 11PM, concertgoers will have the option of turning it up but tuning in for the silent party (where you can tune your headsets into the music directly), so that they can keep on jamming without the music blasting!

The visionary that is Mark Skeete has touched every corner of the entertainment industry, born in the UK before moving to and being raised in the Caribbean before making his way to America. He grew up with the likes of Tony Thompson, the ferocious drummer from the iconic group Chic and Freedom Williams from
C&C Music Factory. He got Ed Lover to MTV and helped turn entertainment mogul Steve Stoute into the industry giant he is today. So when the idea came to him to bring people together, safely but in a big way, and others said no, Skeete bought land and took the idea of this new Woodstock meets protection protocols and social distancing and launched an idea whose time has come and whose audience has been waiting!   

He is an amalgamation of all that is THE CULTURE and he is bringing it all together for this ALL NIGHT THING! “I have always followed my gut when it comes to the chances I take and the choices I make. I think that this is the wave of the future, especially as we work on how we come out of all we’ve been through in the last year plus. People can enjoy the music and the comedy and the culture and each other, without the stuff we still don’t talk about being in our heads. We want the people to have a great time and we are putting together a monster of a show! 
THE ATLANTA CAMPING AND GLAMPING DRIVE-IN CONCERT is going to be FIYAH! People are calling to see if we have room vehicles the size of buses. We are going to make this a SUMMER CELEBRATION!” The Atlanta Camping and Glamping Drive-In Concert sounds the musical trumpet to the world that says on July 17th,

Summer of Soul – RE Classics (Instant Classic) feature

Follow the link below for the exclusive RE Classics feature:

Published on Jul 2, 2021

Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)

(Searchlight Pictures)

Release: 07/02/2021

It’s always great to see the Mighty “Roots” crew reach new heights. We here at RETV feel especially proud because we are close to sure that we were the first East Coast outlet to play the “Distortion to Static” music video in 1994 – shout to Charles Stone III. But we better check with the Legendary Ralph McDaniels of “Music Video Box” just to be sure.

So when Searchlight Pictures invited us behind the scenes and to privately screen Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson’s pet project “Summer of Soul,” we had no idea we would be apart of experiencing a miracle in life and in documentary film making. To go further, the film is a clear example of ancestral communication in its purest form. A lot of that has been going on lately. People of color continue to press on in all chose fields. To channel the legendary Emcee “KRS-ONE” from his 1990 Classic – .”..the Blackman is in effect!! ”

SUMMER OF SOUL is an Instant Classic – period! Not only because Quest is a legendary musician and music historian, but because the first time feature length doc director was exposed to an essential historic relic and marched full steam ahead until the legendary artist and the filmmakers from that time, got the shine that they all deserved. The film found zero interest from the 1960’s television and film industry and soon found itself buried for 50 years – in the basement!

So Questlove and his team crafted a master piece. Delivering a story that not only marvels the mind blowing collection minority entertainers, (some that didn’t even make the cut!) he also intertwined the important social commentary about the plight of the people during one of the the most tumultuous periods in American history. Detrimental societal ills such as, poverty, deliberate economic injustices, inadequate education – too name a few.

This miracle is an Instant Classic because it gives us valuable moments to reflect on our predecessors path and hopefully continue to use their spirit as a beacon for our future endeavors!

Do not miss this experience. You’ll live to regret it.

– RETV/RE Classics

In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents a powerful and transporting documentary—part music film, part historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion.

Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The footage was never seen and largely forgotten–until now.

SUMMER OF SOUL shines a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being and stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present. The feature includes never-before-seen concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.“Summer of Soul (…or, When the Revolution Could Not be Televised),” is the first official project under the recently announced Onyx Collective brand.

The winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival will be released theatrically by Searchlight Pictures and will begin streaming on Hulu in the U.S. on July 2, 2021. The film will also stream internationally through the Star offering on Disney+ on a date to be confirmed.
