Make sure you all check out today's edition of “UPFRONT Inside Atlanta’s Entertainment Industry.”  The show will feature Issa Rae, star of HBO's new series "Insecure".  We also talk to rising photographer and artist Joshua Rashaad McFadden about his new exhibition, "Come to Selfhood", which explores Black male imagery and masculinity. Tony winning-director and CAU alumni Kenny Leon is also in the studio to chat about directing "Hairspray" with Jennifer Hudson as well as his fondest memories of the late actor, Bill Nunn. The show also features new music from gospel singer Pastor Marlon Lock ("Do") and Solange ("Cranes in the Sky").

“UPFRONT” takes an in-depth look at Atlanta’s arts and entertainment scene including TV, film, theater, music and more. Each Saturday, the show features one-on-one interviews with all of the major players and the behind-the-scenes influencers that make Atlanta, the new Hollywood South.
