Netflix has released the official trailer for it’s newest dramedy Uncorked starring Mamoudou Athie, Courtney B. Vance and Niecy Nash. It premieres on March 27.
Fueled by his love for wine, Elijah (Athie) enrolls in a course to become a master sommelier, an elite designation given only to a handful who are able to pass its notoriously difficult exam. It’s a dream that upends the expectations of his father, Louis (Vance), who insists Elijah take over the popular Memphis BBQ joint that’s been passed down from father to son since its inception. Elijah struggles with the demands of school and a new relationship, while Louis wrestles with the feelings of his son rejecting the family business until a tragedy forces both of them to slow things down.
Uncorked is written and directed by Prentice Penny, executive producer, director and writer of HBO’s Insecure.
