The stars came out on June 2, to support veteran producer Bentley Evans who shared insight about his new book, “The Hollywood Formula.”
“The Hollywood Formula” details Bentley’s story of his start in the industry through producing, directing and writing. It also covers how he quit and returned to the business.
Evans has produced many hit shows and movies including “Martin,” “The Jamie Foxx Show,” “Love That Girl,” “Family Time,” and “A Thin Line Between Love and Hate.”
More than 400 people attended the affair held at Harvest Studios in Los Angeles. Actor Michael Colyar served as emcee of the event, which also included a panel discussion on keys to succeeding in television and film.
Among those attending were actor Darius McCrary, director Craig Ross and his actress wife, Caryn Ward Ross, actress Denise Boutte, Chrystee Pharris, casting director Phaedra Harris, actress Ashley Larae, writer Nile Evans of “Wild ‘n Out,” and Bounce TV vice president Abby McDonald.
Many of the actors joined Bentley Evans and Tangerine Talent’s Sueanne Edan on the Q & A panel as well.
