Check out this weekend's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. I got an opportunity to chat with Atanta native and triple threat performer Shamiek Moore, star of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. He is making history as the first African-American-Latino Spider-Man. He also opens up about the power of words and manifesting your future.
Athlete turned actor Jay Ellis was in Atlanta earlier this week promoting his new thriller---Escape Room. We discuss his role in the film and shooting on location in Cape Town, South Africa.
