Irv Gotti’s show ‘Tales’ returns in the fall.
According to the press release, Executive Producer Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo returns with brand new episodes of “TALES” – a one-hour scripted anthology series of “song stories” weaving classic hip-hop songs into visually stunning 3-act narratives. Far beyond the music video or the live event, each song’s lyrics are imagined as cinematic adventures with a different director, screenwriter and celebrity cast per song story. Upcoming songs include Jay-Z’s “99 Problems”, Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen”, “Children’s Story” by Slick Rick, and “You’re All I Need” by Method Man and Mary J. Blige. Featured talent will include Lance Gross, Bre-Z, and Jharrel Jerome (Moonlight) to name a few. “TALES” is produced and created by Irv Gotti and his Visionary Ideas production company.

- THE COMEDY GET DOWN**NEW**
“THE COMEDY GET DOWN” is the first scripted comedy series about what really happens behind the scenes of a massive stand-up comedy tour featuring five legendary comics – George Lopez, DL Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin and Charlie Murphy. They’re hilarious, insane and unapologetic on stage, but the second they step off is when the real show begins. The storylines are based on actual events that have taken place not only on their wildly successful Comedy Get Down arena tour, but throughout the 25 plus years each has been a nationally headlining comedian. A workplace comedy at its core, the 30-minute, single-camera series explores the personal and professional relationships of these five comic titans as they navigate the challenges of life on the road: seedy venues, racist road managers, pushy wives, angry baby mamas, obsessive fans, demanding celebrities, shady politicians and more.
