Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT/Inside the Entertainment Industry.
We’re going behind the scenes of the new HULU series Black Cake. It’s the drama that everyone’s been talking about and is based on Charmaine Wilkerson's critically acclaimed novel where two estranged siblings unravel their mother's concealed and mysterious past. Showrunner, Marissa Jo Cerar is here to give us all the details and much more. This portion of the show is presented as part of an AAFCA Roundtable Discussion.
And we're closing out the show with soul music artist Leela James. The award-winning vocalist is "Right Back In It" with a brand new album, new tour and new HBCU initiative aimed at empowering young Black women. It’s Leela James in her own words for this UPFRONT exclusive.
