Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi brought a celebration of Black love to New York on September 28 to commemorate the premiere of his new Netflix animated series, “ENTERGALACTIC.”
With help from love connector, Bumble, and Netflix’s Strong Black Lead team; the festivities kicked off with a Black Love Brunch hosted by ENTERGALATIC star, Teyana Taylor. Kid Cudi, who voices the shows artistic protagonist “Jabari,” was in attendance alongside his co-star Jessica Williams; who voices Jabari’s love interest, a photographer named “Meadow.” Williams, no stranger to the rom-com genre, is also know for her role in HBO’s Love Life. Going from “Mia,” to “Meadow,” Williams described ENTERGALACTIC in two words: “Juicy and funny.” “Juicyfunny,” she exclaimed in a brief interview, making the two words one.
Executive producers Kenya Barris, Karina Manashill, and Ian Edelman were also in attendance during the brunch held at Catch Steak. DJ couple, DJ Mos and DJ Kiss, set the tone for a dance filled afternoon before the showing of a never before seen ENTERGALATIC trailer; a little tease before the premier.
That evening, the red carpet was rolled out for cast, crew and various VIPS before the series premiere held at New York’s Paris Theatre. More cast mates, including Ty Dolla $ign, and executive producers such as Dennis Cummings and Fletcher Moules came out to celebrate with Vagina macaroons (a nod to an ENTERGALACTIC episode), drinks, mini bowls of pasta and more at Nebula NYC.
ENTERGALACTIC premieres on Netflix on Friday, September 30. Filled with music, fashion and art, the series captures the euphoric feeling of being high (via weed) and falling in love; all while serving as a love letter to New York City.
