Remember when COLOR interviewed Brie Eley, the co-writer and star of indie interracial dating comedy Blind Date Rules, as well as the all-woman crew behind the film? At the time of the interviews, Blind Date Rules was getting ready for the indie festivals. But I’m glad to report that Eley has given COLOR an update on Blind Date Rules!
The culmination of the Blind Date Rules interviews is here! Over the past week, I’ve posted conversations I’ve had with director Christine Chen and co-writer and star Brie Eley. Today, I’m posting an interview I conducted with co-writer Angela Bennett. In this conversation, Bennett and I spoke about the writing process, issues with rom-coms and shaking up the rom-com game.
