Twenty-five years after the show’s finale, some of its cast members are getting together to remember the iconic series at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Over two decades after the show’s finale, creator Keenen Ivory Wayans along with cast members Shawn Wayans, Kim Wayans, David Alan Grier, Tommy Davidson, and Rosie Perez will reconvene to discuss the impact of the iconic show. There will also be a screening of the show’s pilot prior to the panel.
While the festival has previously celebrated film anniversaries and reunions, this is the first time Tribeca TV is celebrating television anniversaries.
“When some of the most cinematic storytelling continues to happen on screens of all sizes and shapes, we were particularly inspired this year by the scope, innovation, and accomplishment of the so-called ‘small’ screen,” Cara Cusumano, the festival’s director said in a statement. “It’s a privilege to showcase these diverse works with a robust program that speaks to the limitless potential of the episodic form.”
The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off in New York City on April 24.
