BET TO AIR FEATURE FILM FAT CAMP IN JULY

BET has picked up the comedy FAT CAMP and will air the film this July, it was announced today. The film was picked up prior to its world premiere on June 21 at 9:05 pm PST in the LA Muse section of this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival.

The film stars Chris Redd (Pop Star: Never Stop Never Stopping, Netflix’s Disjointed), Anabelle Acosta (Quantico, Ballers), newcomer Michael Cienfuegos, Mel Rodriguez (Last Man On Earth, Getting On), and Vivica A. Fox (Empire, Kill Bill: Volumes 1 and 2).

“As the premier destination for lovers of African American culture, BET Networks is committed to supporting independent filmmakers and engaging our viewers worldwide, ” said Maureen Guthman, Senior Vice President, Content Strategy, BET Networks. “We are thrilled to give this film a home.“
In FAT CAMP, twenty-something Hutch (Redd) thinks image is everything. He fronts like a baller and is too spoiled to get a job. But when his mom kicks him out of the house, and he’s forced to work at his uncle’s fat camp, he finds himself supervising an offbeat group of husky boys, who ultimately help him grow up.

Chuck Hayward’s (Netflix’s series Dear White People) irreverent script is all about embracing your inner loser as the ultimate winner, making Emmy- nominated Jennifer Arnold’s (A Small Act) fiction feature directorial debut a willfully offensive adult comedy with no manners and tons of heart.
FAT CAMP is a production of Fluency, a division of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises. Aimed at the emerging majority, Fluency is committed to celebrating new heroes and amplifying bold voices.
“We are very excited to work with BET to premiere our newest film, FAT CAMP,” said Peter E. Blacker, EVP, Digital and Emerging Business, NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises.

FAT CAMP is directed by Jennifer Arnold and is written by Chuck Hayward based on a story by Shane Dawson and Hayward. The film is produced by Tatiana Kelly, Jim Young, William B. Macomber, and Eleanor Nett. Valerie Stadler, Peter E. Blacker, and Shane Dawson are executive producers. Cinematography is by Patti Lee with editing by Brad Wilhite. Music by Siddhartha Khosla.
