A new show is causing quite a bit of a stir around the Black interwebs.
Fried Chicken Cinema is the brainchild of filmmaker Regi Allen and combines food, films, and pop culture into one comedic show. The show stars four friends who live together in a tiny apartment who get together to cook and watch classic B-movies.
Although it seems like an interesting idea, the show’s name is what seems to be causing the stir. But the show’s website says it’s a good conversation stater.
The site explains: “The name Fried Chicken Cinema might create some interesting conversations. This is an amazing opportunity to start a great conversation. It asks people to question social morays and stigmas about color and race. To us, fried chicken is a global comfort food that was perfected by a people with an amazing cultural heritage. Besides, “Grilled Chicken Cinema” doesn’t have the same ring.”
