Robin Givens adds a third director credit with ‘Favorite Son’, a story about two brothers in a gospel group who struggle to find a balance between their lives and their faith while under the strict parenting of their father, the reverend of a megachurch. ‘Favorite Son’ will premiere on BET+ Thursday, May 6th.
Look forwarded to seeing familiar faces you know and love, as the star-studded cast includes Rotimi, Serayah, Jonathan McReynolds, Roger Mitchell, Anton Peeples, Keke Wyatt and more. ‘Favorite Son’ is inspired by Tiffany L. Warren’s novel of the same name.
Last month, blackfilm.com correspondent Koku Tona sat down with Serayah to discuss her upcoming projects, and her role as Dawn in ‘Favorite Son’. Check out the trailer now!
