EXCLUSIVE: Legendary Television has sold its second major broadcast project, this time on the comedy side. The company has teamed with James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment for a half-hour comedy at Fox, which will star top South African comedian Trevor Noah.
I’m so excited to announce that You Laugh But It’s True will be screening for FREE at my alma mater, North Carolina State University, on Sunday, October 6th at 4pm. This will be the film’s first screening in North Carolina, and it’s long overdue. I spent a lot of time in the campus cinema when I was a student at NC State, so it’s a thrill to return 10 years later with a film of my own.
Location details for the screening are as follows:
NC State Campus Cinema
Witherspoon Student Center
2810 Cates Ave
Raleigh, NC 27606
Hope to see you there!

The film will be screening as part of the Chicago International Film Festival’s International Screenings Program on Wednesday July 10, 6:30pm and Saturday July 13, 2pm at the Claudia Cassidy Theater in the Chicago Cultural Center. The screening is presented by the consulate general of South Africa and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences!
Peace and love,
