Prentice Penny wants to mimic life – to imitate life – to join the holiday shopping season in an effort to inspire people to buy from black-owned businesses.
Isa Rake is the co-host and executive producer of the HBO comedy “Insecure” starring and starring in a series of guests aimed at turning Facebook’s “#BuyBlackFriday” closing ceremony into a call. Customers to support black-owned businesses throughout the holiday season.
Penny noted that at the end of “Unsafe” Season 4, Roy’s character started his own small business as a “cultural curator” supporting local entrepreneurs, and the next season will further enhance his search for new ventures.
“He’s promoting the business, like an event planner, it’s nothing different,” Penny said. Different. “It felt like a natural connection to me, especially given what is going on with Kaviid right now,” he said of Facebook’s “#BuyBlackFriday” event.
Penny said he was involved in the small business struggle: When he was growing up, his family owned a furniture store in Compton, Calpe. “I can’t imagine what it would be like if we could deal with COIDID,” Dr. “On behalf of my father’s family, they are all business owners.”
He added that HBO (and HBO Max) provides a great platform to talk about the “unsafe” Krishna community “unspoken” and “biologically”. “On insecurity, we do a lot to highlight black businesses – and especially black businesses in L.A.”
The finale of “#BuyBlackFriday” will air on Friday, November 2 at 11am at the PT of Facebook’s Lift Black Voices Hub, as well as on the Facebook app and Facebook page. In addition to Penny, the two-hour special features other black celebrities, musicians, artists and Gabriel Union, Cauhi Leonard, Marcia Martin, Prentice Penny, Lavente David, Sloane Stephens, Tiffany R. Warren, Alexis Feature (@ Yongbibiq) and Guests include DJ D-Nice and Miguel.
According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Facebook has launched “#BuyBlackFriday” in response to the plight of black-owned businesses in the United States, which has more than doubled over other businesses due to Covid-19. Facebook says, “Through #BuyBlackFriday, we hope to build a new way so that people can have small support and not open the storefront of many small businesses,” Facebook says.
For her, Penny will talk about “how true black stories are told” on the Facebook show: “Jesus speaks of the love of his community. People on the show relate to it – you have to make sure it feels authentic.”
Rao is playing a role in promoting local shopping: he partnered with American Express to promote Saturday, November 26th.
Currently, the “insecure” team is in the writer’s room in Season 5, with the goal of completing the script through Christmas. Next season “hopefully” will start shooting in the new year, Penny said.
Penny’s 5th season will have no Kavid-related themes, with Penny saying it is set to release in the fall of 2021. “Will people think they’re going to be on top of Kavid in the next year?” He added that “insecure” has consistently tried to avoid time-stamping with specific references to real-world events.
Meanwhile, Penny is starting work on a few more projects. This includes Netflix’s untitled Christmas movie to be shot in 2021. He made his film debut with “Uncorked,” a “father-son” drama that premiered on Netflix earlier this year.
