Freestyle Releasing has set an April 1st theatrical release for the movie which is described as a spoof of “The Purge” franchise of films.

Said Taylor, “’Meet the Blacks’ takes spoofing to a new level and is pure cinematic fun for audiences who just want to laugh. This movie assembles a very diverse comedy all-star team that delivers on this promise – in a big way. We truly feel it has all the ingredients for a breakout hit.”

Taylor added, “Freestyle is a great partner for this film. They are a dynamic team who are astute at reaching audiences in unique ways resulting in great connectivity with viewers. Together with Freestyle, we think audiences will definitely make an appointment to ‘Meet the Blacks’ this April!”
