NBC's 'The Village' Luncheon with Frankie Faison

by - Monday, April 01, 2019

On Tuesday March 26th, I had the opportunity  to sit down with the Legend Frankie Faison known for his role as Deputy Commissioner Ervin Burrell in the HBO series The Wire and as Barney Matthews in the Hannibal Lecter franchise, he was the landlord in Coming to America, he was also in  Do The Right Thing, White Chicks, Meet the Browns and so many more. He is now starting in a new series called  “THE VILLAGE” airing Tuesdays on NBC  at 10/9c.

THE VILLAGE is a unique apartment building in Brooklyn and is home to residents who have built a bonded family of friends and neighbors. Sarah's a nurse and single mom raising a creative teen; Gabe's a young law student who just got a much older and unexpected roommate; Ava must secure the future of her young, U.S.-born son when ICE comes knocking; Nick's a veteran who's just returned from war; and Ron and Patricia, who are the heart and soul of the building, have captivating tales all their own. Their hopeful, heartwarming and challenging stories of life prove family is everything, even if it's the family created with the people around them.
