7/12/17 Lead Actors Anabelle Acosta and Chris Redd called in to chat with host Janeane Bernstein about their film, "FAT CAMP," which just premiered at the LA Film Festival and was picked up by BET!

Director Jennifer Arnold (HBO’s A Small Act), Writer Chuck Hayward (Dear White People), Actress Anabelle Acosta (Quantico), Actor Steven Thomas Capp (How I Met Your Mother), Actor Brian Borello (Dark Desire), newcomers Michael Cienfuegos and Luke Clark, Executive Producer Valerie Stadler, Composer Siddhartha Khosla (This Is Us) and Choreographer Alison Faulk (Magic Mike)

Twenty-something Hutch 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 new series Dear White People) irreverent script is all about embracing your inner loser as the ultimate winner, making Emmy-nominated Jennifer Arnold's fiction feature directorial debut a willfully offensive adult comedy with no manners and tons of heart.

Acclaimed comic and actor Chris Redd (Pop Star: Never Stop Never Stopping, Netflix’s Disjointed) gives a star turn as Hutch, supported by 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).

Runtime: 88 min
