We've got a FIRST LOOK” at VH1’s newest original hip-hop movie called “The Breaks” which will debut this winter.





“The Breaks” stars Wood Harris (Remember The Titans, Paid in Full) and Mack Wilds (90210) and is based on the book by journalist Dan Charnas’ entitled “The Big Payback,” a narrative history of the hip-hop business.

“The Breaks” is written, directed and executive produced by Seith Mann (The Wire, The Walking Dead, Homeland) and is scored and executive music produced by the legendary, DJ Premier.

According to VH1, here's the synopsis:

"The Breaks" will chronicle the journey of Nikki (Afton Williamson), David (David Call) and DeeVee (Mack Wilds), three friends united by their love of hip-hop, as they work to make their big mark in the music industry. The film will travel viewers back to the summer of 1990 in New York City where the music industry¹s artists and hustlers intersect in the dance clubs and the street corners of the still crime-ridden city. Nikki Jones is a brilliant recent grad who abandoned a scholarship to law school to pursue her dream of becoming a record exec. Her boyfriend, David Aaron, is the scrappy son of a legendary music producer who is unwilling to rest on his father¹s laurels and notorious reputation. DeeVee is an aspiring producer on the hunt to find the next big rapper on the come-up. Nikki fast talks her way into an internship at the premier hip-hop company, Fouray Entertainment and catches the eye of the label's infamous founder, while David struggles at the city's top R&B radio station whose celebrity DJ refuses to program real hip-hop. Meanwhile, DeeVee returns to his roots in the Fort Greene projects to scout for talent and runs into Ahm, a drug dealer with a lyrical gift whose talent could bring them all to the next level. But they will soon discover lives can be broken as fast as legends can be born."


We love us some Mack Wilds. Are you excited about the show?
