Wendell Pierce in Upcoming Film titled ‘The Thrill Is On’


Pierce’s tweets seem to indicate this project has been in the works for a long time, although the timeline is still unclear. A quick check of the IMDb page for The Thrill Is On elicits a brief working synopsis of the biopic: “A drama centered on the friendship between B.B King and young musician Michael Zanetis.” No casting for Michael Zanetis, who serves as a producer on the biopic, has been announced. Additionally, it’s unclear who will be helming the feature. Per IMDb, it looks like Zanetis is also serving as co-writer alongside Melora Donoghue, whose past credits include writing a horror feature titled Abundant Sunshine and producing Billie Eilish‘s “When the Party’s Over” music video.
