Sole Kings, which Pinckney wrote and directs, follows the lives of “five entrepreneurial sneaker enthusiasts as they hustle their way through Brooklyn’s competitive sneaker culture, trying to define who they are in a world where kicks rule.” The ensemble cast includes Julito McCullum (Namond Brice in season four of HBO’s The Wire).
Bric TV provides Brooklyn, NY, with its public access cable, but the content is much more than typical “talking heads” fare. After all, as Anthony Riddle, Bric’s director of community media, noted at a fall season launch party earlier this week: Brooklyn is “the most amazing branded borough in the city of New York.”
Speaking of branding, Bric TV’s other scripted series include The Savvy Screener favorite Brooklynification, a comedy about urban gentrification. Brooklynification’s second season is scheduled to launch in January, but you can stick around on Monday night to catch an episode from the first season at 10 pm – or watch the entire season online.
