Writer-director Mario Van Peebles takes us into the life of contemporary teenagers as they are, not as adults would like them to be. Set at an ethnically diverse Los Angeles high school, five friends deal with romance, money, prom, college, sex, bullies, Facebook, fitting in, standing out and, ultimately, finding themselves. Evoking such classic teen comedies as The Breakfast Club and House Party, We the Party captures the hopes, confusion, challenges and dreams of today’s teenagers without pulling any punches, as they plunge headlong into an uncertain future.
Featuring an all-star cast that includes Snoop Dogg, YG, The New Boyz, The Rej3ctz, The Pink Dollaz, Mario Van Peebles, Michael Jai White, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Tiny Lister, Melvin Van Peebles, Mandela Van Peebles, Simone Battle, Moises Arias, Orlando Brown and Quincy Brown, We the Party is a colorful and cutting-edge look at the highs and lows of being a youth in the new millennium. Tune in Wednesday, December 19 at 8P/7C for the network premiere of We the Party!
