Other attendees included the film’s executive producer, Mona Scott-Young; cast members Thomas Mackie and Timothy Richardson; writer James Earl Hardy; and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss.
The movie follows the same-sex love story of a college educated journalist from Brooklyn and a homeboy-bike messenger from Harlem.
The drama is an adaptation of James Earl Hardy’s best-selling novel, with the script co-written by Hardy and Smollett.
B-Boy Blues was financed by Smollett and Cleveland-based radio broadcast investor Tom Wilson for A SuperMassive Movie. In addition to Mona Scott-Young, executive producers include Hardy, Madia Hill-Scott, and Stephanie Gayle for Monami Entertainment. Frank Gatson also serves as executive producer alongside Sampson McCormick and Stephanie Frederic.
The movie began streaming June 9 on BET+. Check out the photos from the Atlanta premiere below.
