Debut date: FRIDAY, NOV. 23 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT)
One of music’s most notable bassists, Bootsy Collins went from rocking out in Ohio to working with the notorious James Brown, who taught him “The One” funk basics. But it was when Bootsy met George Clinton that he created his larger-than-life persona and became the backbone of the P-Funk empire. As the frontman of Bootsy’s Rubber Band, he quickly achieved solo stardom before realizing that what he loved most about music was the joy of just being part of a group.

Debut date: FRIDAY, NOV. 30 (10:00-10:30 p.m.)
A lover of shotguns, gumbo and traveling to gigs on his private jet, James Brown – nicknamed “Mr. Dynamite” – was renowned for his infectious voice and unbelievable dance moves, earning a reputation as the hardest-working man in show business. Between his womanizing ways, perfectionist attitude and daredevil style, he built an empire that went far beyond entertaining, often alienating musicians and business partners along the way. With hit singles like “Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud,” Brown reached new heights within the black community in the tumultuous 1960s, catching the attention of the FBI along the way.

SAY HER NAME: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF SANDRA BLAND

EXPLORING THE CONTROVERSIAL DEATH OF A
YOUNG BLACK WOMAN IN POLICE CUSTODY,
DEBUTS DEC. 3 ON HBO

On July 10, 2015, Sandra Bland, a politically engaged and vibrant 28-year-old African American from Chicago, was arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town. After three days in custody, she was found hanging from a noose in her jail cell. Bland’s death was quickly ruled a suicide, sparking allegations of a racially motivated police murder and cover-up, and turning her case and name into a rallying cry nationwide.
From the Oscar®-nominated, Emmy®- and Peabody Award-winning team of directors/producers Kate Davis and David Heilbroner (HBO’s “Traffic Stop,” “Southern Comfort,” “The Cheshire Murders” and “Jockey”), SAY HER NAME: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF SANDRA BLAND examines this story in depth, revealing previously unknown details when itdebuts MONDAY, DEC. 3 (10:00-11:45 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
The documentary will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
Both a legal thriller and a parable about race in America, SAY HER NAME: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF SANDRA BLAND follows the Bland family and legal team from the first weeks after her death as they try to find out of what really happened in that jail cell in Hempstead, Texas. Embedded with the family and their lawyers, the filmmakers tracked the story for two years, drawing on key documents, jail footage and interviews with those closest to the events.
While the Texas authorities ruled Bland’s death a suicide, providing photos of a noose made out of a garbage-can liner as evidence of the cause of death, questions were raised about why she was held alone in a cell without surveillance cameras, whether cell checks by law enforcement had been fabricated and why Bland’s body had been severely bruised. Attorneys in the film examine the disturbing police dashcam video of Trooper Brian Encina’s aggressive treatment of Bland after pulling her over for failing to use a turn signal. Fearing that she had been murdered, her mother and sisters filed a suit against local law enforcement and the Waller County jail as protests amplified across the country.
SAY HER NAME is punctuated with footage from Bland’s passionate “Sandy Speaks” video blogs that bring her voice to life. Through the videos,as well as voicemail messages and insights from close friends, she emerges a central figure in the narrative, an engaging and enlightened woman whose sharp, humorous remarks address subjects from black history to police brutality to natural hair. To those who knew Sandra Bland best, suicide seemed unimaginable.
Following a contentious legal battle, the family settled with authorities, giving rise to the Sandra Bland Act, which is now law in Texas. The Act mandates a host of prison reforms aimed at preventing inmate suicide, and a street in Hempstead, Texas has been named in Sandra Bland’s honor.
Interviewees in the film include: Geneva Reed-Veal, her mother; sisters Shante Needham, Shavon Bland and Sharon Cooper; Sheriff Glenn Smith, head of the Waller County PD; Elton Mathis, DA, Hempstead, Texas; Trey Duhon, county judge, Hempstead, Texas; Hannah Bonner, activist and Waller County minister; and family attorney Cannon Lambert.
SAY HER NAME will have a limited theatrical run prior to its HBO debut.
The documentary made its world premiere at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. It won Best of Fest at the Ridgefield Film Festival, and was nominated for awards at the Traverse City Film Festival, Chicago Film Festival, the St. Louis Film Festival and Nashville Film Festival, among many others.
SAY HER NAME: THE LIFE AND DEATH OF SANDRA BLAND was directed by Kate Davis; produced by David Heilbroner and Nancy Knox Talcott; edited by Kate Davis; directors of photography, Kate Davis and Tom Bergmann; music by Joel Harrison. For HBO: executive producer, Lisa Heller.

TUNE IN SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10 AT 9PM ET/PT FOR PART 2 OF THE SHOWTIME DOCUMENTARY ‘SHUT UP & DRIBBLE,’ EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY LEBRON JAMES AND DATARI TURNER

(LOS ANGELES) – November 9, 2018 – Film and television producer Datari Turner continues a year of successful ventures with the Showtime documentary Shut Up & Dribble, which he serves as executive producer on along with Lebron James’ SpringHill Entertainment. The three-part series premiered November 3 and will air its second installment this Saturday, November 10 at 9pm ET/PT.

Shut Up & Dribble, which borrowed its title from conservative commentator Laura Ingraham’s remarks to James earlier this year, provides a powerful inside look at the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment, through the lens of the NBA. The series chronicles the modern history of the league, and how it became an incubator for many of its top athletes to grow their brands beyond the court and become cultural icons. By taking control of their own destinies, basketball players have helped to bring about social change and make their own statements in the current political climate. Former ESPN personality Jemele Hill narrates.

“I’m honored to be a part of such an inspiring and groundbreaking series,” says Turner. “Sports and basketball, in particular, have helped to bring about incredible social and economic change in our culture. Sports icons like Lebron James and others, continue to lead by example, making powerful statements for change in our current political climate. My hope is that everyone will be inspired and impacted from watching ‘Shut Up & Dribble’ in some way or another.”

Shut Up & Dribble airs Saturdays at 9pm ET/PT on Showtime. Visit https://www.sho.com/shut-up-and-dribble for more information.

JAMAICAN FILM SPRINTER TO MAKE HISTORY AT SMITHSONIAN AFRICAN AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL

Washington D.C. October 19, 2018—Storm Saulter’s Award-winning acclaimed drama SPRINTER from Executive Producers Jada & Will Smith will have its Washington D.C. premiere on the opening day of the Smithsonian African American Film Festival, presented by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. SPRINTER is one of 15 films in competition, and will screen on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at 4:15pm at the Freer|Sackler Meyer Auditorium. “These selected films are more than just great entertainment; they are also cultural markers that expand the timeline of African American experiences,” said Rhea L. Combs, supervisory museum curator of photography & film and director of CAAMA. “By screening world premieres next to films that haven’t been shown in decades or have been restored and preserved by the museum, we are honoring our past, our present and our future.”

Saulter’s SPRINTER has been on a festival hot-streak. SPRINTER swept this year’s American Black Film Festival winning three top Awards (Best Narrative, Best Director, Audience Award) while also recently premiering in the Caribbean at the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival to a sold out crowd and rave reviews. Following the Smithsonian D.C. screening, the film heads back to the Caribbean where it will open the Bahamas International Film Festival on November 28th.

Written and Directed by Storm Saulter (“Better Mus Come”), the film’s all-star cast includes newcomer Dale Elliott, Kadeem Wilson (“Ghett’ A Life”), Dennis Titus (“The Mighty Quinn”), Shantol Jackson (“Yardie”), Bryshere Y. Gray (“Empire,” “The New Edition Story”), with LorraineToussaint (“Selma,” “Orange Is The New Black,”), and David Alan Grier (“The Wiz Live,” “The Carmichael Show,” “In Living Color”).

Producers are Robert Maylor, Clarence Hammond, and Jamal Watson. Jada & Will Smith Executive Produce alongside NBA Veteran and Media Personality Richard Jefferson, Josef Bogdanovich, Zachary Harding, Aaron Carr, Vinoda Basnayake, Donald Ranvaud, Kevin “Flipp” Montgomery, Dr. Lim, Shaffer “Ne-Yo” Smith (who created two original songs for the film), and Reynell “Tango” Hay.

“I’m honored that Sprinter was selected to be part of the inaugural festival. Caribbean history and identity is so intertwined with that of the Americas. I look forward to Sprinter sparking some important dialogue within this vital and historic space at a particularly culture-shifting moment in time” said Saulter.

Producer Rob Maylor added “The opening scene and heart of Sprinter is the sacrifice a mother makes to provide a better life for her family as she leaves her young son behind in Jamaica to work and provide for him from the US. The chance at a better life for those we love is the tipping point of not just our story but the American Dream and countless immigrant tales. As such our film’s selection to screen in the nation’s capital, at the world’s largest museum complex, as part of the Smithsonian’s inaugural film festival celebrating the history and culture of African Americans is a dream realized – one we are beyond excited, humbled and honored to be a part of.”

The prestigious Smithsonian African American Film Festival is screening 80 projects, tickets can be purchased by visiting: https://aafilmfest.si.edu/discover/events/sprinter-competition
