BGN interviews the cast of the Apple TV+ series The Big Cigar. Featured in the interviews are: André Holland ( ‘Huey P. Newton’), Alessandro Nivola (‘Bert Schneider’), Tiffany Boone (‘Gwen Fontaine’) and P.J. Byrne (‘Steve Blauner’).

Based on the magazine article of the same name from Joshuah Bearman (Argo), who also serves as executive producer, The Big Cigar tells the incredible true story of Hollywood revolution meeting social revolution: it’s a wild caper of Black Panther founder Huey Newton escaping from the FBI to Cuba with the assistance of famed producer Bert Schneider in an impossibly elaborate plan – involving a fake movie production — that goes wrong every way it possibly can. And somehow, it’s all true. Mostly.

Interviewer: Jamie Broadnax

Video Editor: Jamie Broadnax

The Big Cigar premieres May 17th on Apple TV+
