Mahdi Cocci of Tyler Perry’s Bruh
Today on The Dr. Christopher Hall’s Show, Dr. Hall and The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Mahdi Cocci of Tyler Perry’s Bruh.
Atlanta-based actor and model Mahdi Cocci currently stars in the new BET+ series “Bruhs,” a 30-min comedy series from powerhouse producer Tyler Perry which celebrates black male brotherhood (new episodes released every Thursday). Cocci is also set to co-star in the upcoming NETFLIX romantic comedy feature THE LOVEBIRDS opposite Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani which is slated for release on Friday, May 22nd.
His BET+ series “Bruhs” examines the contemporary world of dating, career, and friendship through the lens of four African American men with a brother-like bond. ‘Tom’ (Cocci), ‘John’, ‘Mike’ and ‘Bill’ are four college friends now in their thirties. Tom is a doctor with lady problems, but he is also the glue that holds the group together. As they navigate life, they are learning to stand on their own two feet, while relying on each other for support. Sometimes the love is tough, and the honesty brutal, but no matter the situation they see each other through with levity and laughter. In a society where companionship between men of color is often misjudged and misrepresented, the show depicts a healthy image of black brotherhood, embracing vulnerability without playing on stereotypical hyper-masculinity.
THE LOVEBIRDS is a new rom-com from Paramount/Netflix that tells the story of couple ‘Jibran’ (Kumail) and ‘Leilani’ (Issa), who on the brink of breaking up, get unintentionally embroiled in a bizarre murder mystery. As they get closer to clearing their names and solving the case, they need to figure out how they, and their relationship, can survive the night. Cocci portrays ‘Keith,’ a potential love interest to Leilani who gets in the way of her relationship with Jibran. Originally scheduled to premiere at SXSW, the film is now set for a May 22nd, 2020 release on Netflix.
