You Should Go: “Words With Girls” Premiere at Urbanworld Festival

If you are in or around New York, you can catch the Words With Girls “Pilot” before it’s available online. The show will be part of the Shorts Programming on Saturday, September 20th at noon as part of HBO and BET’s Urbanworld Film Festival. Tickets are available online now for the screening at the AMC Theater on 34th. Also, I’ll be there.

Pace, Micky, and Aspen are early 20-something, fast-talking, attitude having lesbians each with their own Hollywood dream but one crappy apartment. When Pace is brutally broken up with by her girlfriend of three years, it causes the roommates to reassess everything. A lack of success in love and life has always been one of the things that held the best friends together and when that starts to change, it threatens to tear them apart.

You’ve already seen the trailer but here’s a sneak peek from the episode that finds Micky (Corbin Reid) going to get new headshots from a perhaps less than trustworthy photographer (Will Hines).

If you’re around on Wednesday, there’s some free programming worth checking out which includes a discussion with Color Creative TV founders, Issa Rae and Deniese Davis. You can RSVP for the panels, presentations, and labs part of the festival’s Digital Day now.
