[via press release from Netflix]

NETFLIX STARTS PRODUCTION ON "BEATS" STARRING ANTHONY ANDERSON

Chris Robinson is directing from an original screenplay by Miles Feldsott

· Last week the Global Road Entertainment and 51 Minds Entertainment produced feature Beats began filming in Chicago for Netflix.

· Log Line: In this urban coming of age drama, the paths of a young musical prodigy (Khalil Everage) with borderline agoraphobia, and a former music manager (Anthony Anderson) who fell from grace, collide on Chicago's South Side, and the unlikely duo must come together to free each other from the demons of their past. Beats is the ultimate ode to Chicago and its hip hop scene, as it illustrates the beating pulse at the heart of the South Side.

· The Beats filmmakers went for authenticity over experience by casting newcomer Khalil Everage, a seventeen-year-old from Chicago's very own South Side, in his first lead role opposite Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Anthony Anderson (Black-ish).

· Musically, Beats will feature both established and rising Chicago based hip-hop producers and artists - including original music from elite hip-hop producer Young Chop, who was born and bred on Chicago's South Side

· Director: Chris Robinson (ATL, The New Edition Story)

· Writer and Co-Producer: Miles Orion Feldsott (Deadly Class)

· Production Companies: Global Road Entertainment, 51 Minds

· Producers: Bob Teitel (The Hate U Give, Men of Honor, Barbershop), Christian Sarabia, Glendon Palmer (Southside with You, Jumping the Broom)

· Executive Producers: Anthony Anderson, Carrie Holt de Lama, Mitch Smith, E. Brian Dobbins, Chris Robinson

· Cast: Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Khalil Everage, two-time Emmy Award Winner Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), Emayatzy Corinealdi (Middle of Nowhere, Roots), Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya, BlacKkKlansman), as well as hip hop artists Dave East and Dreezy.

· The film will be released on Netflix in 2019
