June 9 (UPI) — Director Chris Robinson is now filming Beats, a Netflix movie starring black-ish actor Anthony Anderson, in Chicago.
Written by Miles Feldsott, Beats is set to debut in 2019.
Its ensemble will also include newcomer Khalil Everage, as well as Uzo Aduba, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Paul Walter Hauser, Dave East and Dreezy.
“In this urban, coming-of-age drama, the paths of a young musical prodigy with borderline agoraphobia, and a former music manager 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,” a news release from the streaming service said.
