BET celebrated the first episode of Lena Waithe’s new series “TWENTIES” with a swanky screening/reception that featured delicious eats, flowing cocktails, eye-catching artwork and a trendy photo booth experience at the cities’s newest (and nicest) venue Factory Atlanta.
Guests partied with cast members Jonica “JoJo” T. Gibbs, Christina Elmore & Gabrielle Graham in the lavish venue overflowing with good vibes and excitement. Following the Atlanta screening, the cast members traveled to Chicago to show the first episode to their Windy City fans at Moonlight Studios.
