We Are Freestyle Love Supreme Documentary Premiere Date Set

The We Are Freestyle Love Supreme documentary, originally set to premiere on Hulu on June 5, officially has a new premiere date set. After a statement to postpone the premiere made from the team in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, the documentary will arrive on the streaming platform on July 17.

Well before the world knew of the Tony award-winning Broadway musicals Hamilton and In The Heights, Lin-Manuel Miranda was in an improvisational hip-hop group called Freestyle Love Supreme along with director Thomas Kail and performers Christopher Jackson and Anthony Veneziale. Filmmaker Andrew Fried began chronicling the group in the summer of 2005, documenting the early days of Freestyle Love Supreme beatboxing and rapping on the sidewalks—unaware of how their story would unfold. Fourteen years later, Fried captures them reuniting for a series of shows in New York City that led to a triumphant run on Broadway. Both poignant and inspired, We Are Freestyle Love Supreme recalls the creative dreams of youth and why this show still means so much to these accomplished performers.

The film was produced by Andrew Fried, Sarina Roma, Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jill Furman, Jon Steingart, and Jenny Steingart. The documentary will be exclusively available to stream on Hulu when released.
