Black Buck

Twenty two year old Darren is the best Starbucks manager in Midtown Manhattan. After 4 years this handsome young man can juggle every job in the store and is loved by his loyal employees and customers as he never forgets a face or a drink. Content living at home with his mother in Bed-Stuy and down the street from his sweetheart Soraya, this valedictorian from Bronx Science is in no rush to figure out what he really wants to do with his life. One day an opportunity stands in line at the coffee shop. On a whim Darren convinces a self absorbed demanding executive to try a different drink and Rhett Daniels, CEO of Sumwun, one of the hottest startups in NY is simply mesmerized. Like a dog with a bone, Rhett will stop at nothing until Darren accepts his invitation to join his team. Unable to resist, Rhett introduces his new protege to the team 36 floors above. Renamed “Buck” he looks around to find he is the only black person in the company and enters into sales training hell week scared out of his mind. As he quickly outsells beyond their wildest dreams Buck must learn to navigate this new world without losing every single person and ethical value he has ever had. A fast moving satire of the bizarre startup technology craze, racism in corporate America and one young man’s longing to change the world. Witty, clever, controversial comedy sometimes leaving me unsure if I was allowed to laugh. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
