LOS ANGELES (AP) “Insecure” showrunner Prentice Penny was supposed to premiere his directorial debut, "Uncorked," at the SXSW Film Festival, but unlike many others he had a guaranteed release on Netflix even after the festival was canceled.

Penny says he wanted to make a film that depicted a black father and son relationship in a new way.

He also wanted his main character to aspire to a career where you don't see many African Americans: Wine. “Uncorked” starts streaming on Netflix Friday.
