UPFRONT featuring Karen Gist, Trevante Rhodes and Russell Hornsby from HULU's MIKE

Check out this recent edition of UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.

We’re going behind-the-scenes of the HULU original “MIKE”. The 8-part limited series explores the tumultuous ups and downs of Mike Tyson’s boxing career and personal life from being a beloved global athlete to a pariah and back again. Showrunner Karin Gist and lead actors Trevante Rhodes and Russell Hornsby are here to talk about transforming into their characters and more. This segment is part of an AAFCA Roundtable Discussion.

We also catch up with saxophonist J Henry Live. The Atlanta-based jazz performer has been turning some heads recently with his new sound and vocal tributes to R&B legend Barry White. He’s here to chat about the music and more.

And we revisit my conversation with A Different World actress and TV icon Jasmine Guy as she talks about her new independent film, The Lady Makers.

UFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is produced and hosted by Ray Cornelius for Jazz WCLK 91.9 and is recorded from the campus of Clark Atlanta University. It is also brought to you by the High Museum of Art and the Bob Thompson Exhibition.
