House Party (2023)
House Party, the remix to the fan-favourite 90s comedy, follows aspiring club promoters and best buds Damon (Saturn award nominee Tosin Cole from 61st Street, Till and Doctor Who) and Kevin (BET and Black Reel Award nominee Jacob Latimore from Detroit, The Chi, and Like a Boss), who are barely keeping things together.
Out of money, down on their luck and about to lose the roofs over their heads—and freshly fired from their low-lift jobs as house cleaners—the pair needs a huge windfall to make their problems go away. In a “what the hell?” move, they decide to host the party of the year at an exclusive mansion, the site of their last cleaning job, which just happens to belong to none other than real-life NBA star LeBron James.
No permission? No problem. What could go wrong?
The cast includes Melvin Gregg (Snowfall), award winners Karen Obilom (Doom Patrol), Allen Maldonado (Heels, The Wonder Years) and Nigerian-American actor Rotimi (Dre in Power), and Emmy winners Lena Waithe (The Chi, Ready Player One) and Snoop Dogg, Grammy winners Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi) and Lil Wayne, and of course, LeBron himself. Also look out for original franchise stars Christopher Reid and Christopher Martin (aka Kid ‘n Play).
From the Emmy-nominated producers behind Hustle and Space Jam: A New Legacy, LeBron James and Maverick Carter (who also produced What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali), House Party is written by the Emmy-nominated duo, Jamal Olori and Stephen Glover (Guava Island, Atlanta), and the feature film debut of Grammy-winning music video director Calmatic, who directed Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road feat. Billy Ray Cyrus, and has worked with Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Anderson .Paak, and Jay-Z.
