A young attorney looks to gain a position at a prestigious law firm while secretly dating his boss’ daughter, who he’s hoping to marry; but when his loving girlfriend decides to arrange a surprise family weekend get-together, Travis Stanley’s plans blow up in his face, especially with the arrival of his ghetto-fied family, the Stankershets.
From Christopher B. Stokes, the writer & director of “You Got Served” (which opened #1 at the box office) and “Will To Love,” comes a raucous new comedy about acceptance, love and the importance of family. Staring the illustrious talents of Wendy Raquel Robinson (The Game, The Steve Harvey Show), Clifton Powell (Next Friday, Ray), Dorien Wilson (The Parkers, Sister-Sister), Shondrella Avery (Napoleon Dynamite, Deja Vu), Alfred Nolan Thomas III (Stomp The Yard, Step Up 2: The Streets), Chantel Jeffries, Tammy Townsend (Disney Channel’s K.C. Undercover), Jarell Houston a.k.a. J-Boog (You Got Served, B2K) Marques Houston (You Got Served, Sister-Sister) and Karrueche Tran “Dinner With The Stankershets” is a comedy for the ages.
Once his secret is discovered, Marques Houston and Karrueche Tran portray love interests who struggle to hold onto their relationship all while their two families wage war in an explosion of hilarity. Its the far east against the deep south; strict, traditional, Korean customs versus backwards, country way of life. In the end, Travis (Houston) must find a way to make the two families peacefully co-exist long enough for him to propose to the woman he loves. Written by Stokes, Houston and Chaz Echols, this heart warming comedy will have you doubled over in laughter. Get ready, because the Stankershets are serving up a tray of barbecue grilled funny bones, in “Dinner With The Stankershets,” coming to theaters late 2015 or early 2016.
