The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air meets Archie comics in a refreshingly funny love letter to New Jack Swing.

In a 90s kind of world, 4 young friends try to navigate a New Jack Swinging landscape of shopping malls, demo tapes, and shady record execs. Will Ronnie, Mikey, Vinnie and Ray achieve boy band stardom with their friendships intact – or will they learn all that glitters ain’t double platinum?

Welcome to SMOOVE CITY.
