In 2017 it was the movie Burning Sands and it looks like for 2018 Netflix will dabble in the world of telling stories about Black fraternities and sororities again with their comedy Step Sisters.
On Tuesday, the streaming service released this trailer for the movie which received many negative reviews in the Black fraternity and sorority community:
In November, Deadline.com announced that Netflix had bought the worldwide rights to Step Sisters, a sorority comedy directed by Drumline’s Charles Stone III and written by Dear White People’s Chuck Hayward.
Here is the IMDB description of the movie:
“Jamilah has her whole life figured out. She’s the president of her black sorority, captain of their champion step dance crew, is student liaison to the college dean, and her next move is on to Harvard Law School. She’s got it all, right?
But when the hard-partying white girls from Sigma Beta Beta embarrass the school, Jamilah is ordered to come to the rescue. Her mission is to not only teach the rhythmically-challenged girls how to step dance, but to win the Steptacular, the most competitive of dance competitions. With the SBBs reputations and charter on the line, and Jamilah’s dream of attending Harvard in jeopardy, these outcast screw-ups and their unlikely teacher stumble through one hilarious misstep after another. Cultures clash, romance blossoms, and sisterhood prevails as everyone steps out of their comfort zones.”
This is how Deadline described the film,
“Megalyn Echikunwoke toplines Step Sisters as Jamilah Bisho, an ultra-ambitious Theta sister, who is headed to Harvard Law. All she needs is her dean’s endorsement, but in return, she must cross cultural lines and teach a wild, party-obsessed white sorority the exclusive art of black stepping. Lyndon Smith, Eden Sher, Alessandra Torresani, Marque Richardson, Matt McGory and Naturi Naughton co-star.”
According to reports, Netflix plans to put the movie up on their streaming service in January of 2018.
While all we know about the film is what is written in the bio, Netflix’s Burning Sands received a very mixed response from members of the Black greek community. While Burning Sands was about hazing and was bound to ruffle some feathers, this looks like it may have the chance to flat out offend.
