HHS1987 was live on the red carpet of ‘Brotherly Love’ movie premiere in Philadelphia, Pa on March 31, 2015. We were able to get a quick interview with Charlie Mack and his son Charon. Charlie Mack first talked about his involvement with the ‘Brotherly Love’ film, along with his relationship the films’ director, Jamal Hill. He then talked about his upcoming films ‘ATL 2’ and ‘Catch 22.’ His son talks to us about his role in the ‘Brotherly Love’ film, and being an inspiring actor as well. Charlie talked to us about the success of Yazz The Greatest (from Fox hit show, Empire), and his R&B group, Brotherly Love.

Set on the backdrop of Philadelphia’s famed Overbrook High School, we track the lives of the nations number one high school basketball player Sergio Taylor as he deals with the early pressures of hood fame. His older brother June who had basketball dreams of his own, but after the death of their father he resorted to the allure of the streets to fill the financial void in the home. Finally, their sister Jackie the princess of the bunch who has strong ambitions to pursue a musical career, but is suddenly side tracked by an unexpected encounter with teenage love. This story takes place in a city where the life expectancy of a black male is twenty-five years of age. A city that had over four hundred murders last year alone, and where the unemployment rate is at an all time high. This story is painted with a kaleidoscope of music, sports, and characters that will bring the last two generation closer together by allowing them to see the inner lives of our youths in the journey of Brotherly Love.
