‘The Supremes At Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat’ Trailer: Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, Sanaa Lathan, & Uzo Aduba Star In Hulu Drama Next Month

Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, Sanaa Lathan, Uzo Aduba. You could put those three in anything and make magic but put them in an adaptation of Edward Kelsey Moore’s bestselling novel The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat and we have something to look forward to when it hits Hulu next month, courtesy of Searchlight Pictures.

Directed by Tina Mabry, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Cee Marcellus, the film centers on three lifelong best friends who call themselves “The Supremes” as they experience the highs and lows of life through the years.

Rounding out an extraordinary cast are Mekhi Phifer, Julian McMahon, Vondie Curtis-Hall, and Russell Hornsby.

This could be a big breakout film for Mabry, who caught the attention of Ava DuVernay with her directorial debut Mississippi Damned. She went to write and direct episodes of DuVernay’s series, Queen Sugar.

SYNOPSIS: THE SUPREMES AT EARL’S ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT follows lifelong best friends Odette (Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor), Barbara Jean (Sanaa Lathan), and Clarice (Uzo Aduba) known as “The Supremes”, who share the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood from decades of weathering life’s storms. Through the joys and sorrows of life, marriage and children, happiness and blues, love and loss, new shades of heartbreak and illness threaten to stir up the past when the trio sees their bond put to the test as they face their most challenging times yet.

The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat debuts on Hulu on August 23rd.
