NEW TRAILER: Hulu’s WE ARE FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME





The rhythm and rhymes are almost here! Check out the official trailer for upcoming Hulu original documentary We Are Freestyle Love Supreme which premieres next Friday, June 5th only on Hulu!

WE ARE FREESTYLE LOVE SUPREME

Premiere Date: Friday, June 5, 2020
Genre: Documentary (82 minutes)
Synopsis: Well before the world knew of the Tony award-winning Broadway musicals Hamilton and In The Heights, Lin-Manuel Miranda was in an improvisational hip-hop group called Freestyle Love Supreme along with director Thomas Kail and performers Christopher Jackson and Anthony Veneziale. Filmmaker Andrew Fried began chronicling the group in the summer of 2005, documenting the early days of Freestyle Love Supreme beatboxing and rapping on the sidewalks—unaware of how their story would unfold. Fourteen years later, Fried captures them reuniting for a series of shows in New York City that led to a triumphant run on Broadway. Both poignant and inspired, We Are Freestyle Love Supreme recalls the creative dreams of youth and why this show still means so much to these accomplished performers.
Cast: Subjects include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Arthur Lewis, Anthony Veneziale, Christopher Jackson, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Chris Sullivan, Bill Sherman, James Monroe Iglehart, Andrew Bancroft and Thomas Kail.
Crew: Directed by Andrew Fried and produced by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jenny & Jon Steingart, Jill Furman, Sarina Roma, Fried and Endeavor Content.
