*Anthony Ansderson, who stars on the hit ABC show “Black-ish,” hasn’t done a movie in a while (cause he’s busy with his hit TV show “Black-ish.”
Well, that’s about to change because he’s starring in a a new Netflix film called “Beats.” It’s coming-of-age drama about a teenage musical prodigy in Chicago. That prodigy is Khalil Everage, who is making his feature film debut in the production. “Beats,” is due next month (June) on the streaming service.

As far as Anderson is concerned, in “Beats” he plays a down and out high school security guard who was once in the music game before things went bad for him. However, upon discovering the hidden talent of Everage’s character, he’s inspired to get back into the music business. The problem is that even though Everage’s character has a propensity for making super hot hip-hop beats, he is a RECLUSIVE musical prodigy. Yep, we’re talking a challenging situation here … for both Anderson and Everage’s charactwers. That’s a good thing ’cause the audience gets to see how they rid themselves of past demons while one tries to break into the city’s music scene and the other tries to get back into that scene.
Of course Anderson and Everage are not alone in the film. Uzo Aduba and Emayatzy Corinealdi also star in “Beats,” which Netflix says is the “ultimate ode to Chicago’s South Side and its long history of creating music that forms the city’s beating heart.”
“Beats” starts its streaming run on Netflix on June 19.
