'Beats' Trailer: Anthony Anderson Helps Agoraphobic Teen Launch Music Career
The Netflix drama "Beats" is due out in June, so the streamer has released a new trailer.
The preview shows an unlikely duo -- a former music manager-turned-school security guard and South Side Chicago teen (Khalil Everage) with borderline agoraphobia. Their stories collide when the security guard (Anthony Anderson) goes to the teen's house to talk about his attendance and hears him making music. As we see in the trailer, he realizes that the young hip-hop prodigy could be his way back into the music industry.
There are challenges along the way, of course. The trailer shows that the boy's mother (Uzo Aduba) has her doubts about whether or not its helpful for the security guard to be pushing her son out of his comfort zone.
"My son was very happy before you started coming around here," she says.
Watch the trailer below.
The film also stars Emayatzy Corinealdi and is directed by Chris Robinson.
"Beat" debuts June 19 on Netflix.
