Beats trailer: Rise above the noise
Netflix has released the first trailer for Beats, a new music drama set to arrive on the streaming service this June. Starring Anthony Anderson (Black-Ish), Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black), Emayatzy Corinealdi (The Red Line, Ballers), Khalil Everage (Cobra Kai), Dreezy, and Dave East, check it out in the player below!
In this coming-of-age drama, a reclusive teenage musical prodigy (Khalil Everage) forms an unlikely friendship with a down-on-his-luck high school security guard (Anthony Anderson). United by their mutual love of hip hop, they try to free each other from the demons of their past and break into the city’s music scene.
Directed by Chris Robinson (ATL, “The New Edition Story”), BEATS features Everage in his feature film debut and is the ultimate ode to Chicago’s South Side, and its long history of creating music that forms the city’s beating heart.
Directed by Chris Robinson and written by Miles Feldsot, Beats will launch globally on Netflix June 19th.
