Bronzeville an audio scripted drama, produced by Larenz Tate and Laurence Fishburne, begins recording season 2. Learn more here--->
Bronzeville, audio scripted drama story, chronicles this iconic, historic, all African American, self-sufficient, community on the South Side of Chicago in the 1940s. Bronzeville stories the lives of players in the lottery games (running numbers) while illuminating the self-sustainability of the community's African American residence.
The series is produced and directed by Larenz Tate and Laurence Fishburne who also act in the series. Fishburne states, "We are telling the story of Jimmy Tillman, played by Larenz Tate, who comes up from the South. Jimmy goes to work for a very powerful family who runs the policy wheel in Chicago. Over the course of ten episodes, the audience will become immersed in this world that has all but virtually disappeared." The series is dramatic, funny, action-packed with rich characters.
Season 1 of the audio drama was released in 2017 with a star-studded cast joining Tate and Fishburne including; Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Tracee Ellis Ross, Wood Harris, Cory Hardrict, and our very own daytime star, Beth Maitland and so many more.
We (me) learned about the series from Beth Maitland's Twitter. She posted that recording for season 2 is underway! And she posted these fabulous pictures of herself! If you watch Y&R like we do, you are getting a strong sense of deja vu!
If you haven't checked out Bronzeville yet, you can listen to season 1 on Google Play, iTunes, Spotify, and Sound Cloud. As we said, we (me) just learned about it ourselves. But we will most definitely be checking it out!
Stay tuned for updates on Bronzeville! We have put this one on our radar!
