ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, Oct. 26, 2021 / – GRAMMY-nominated hip-hop group Nappy Roots in partnership with PAM Studios Rome will present their docu-style reality-based TV series ’40 Akers & a Brew ‘on Thursday 11 November at 7 p.m., as part of the 2021 Rome International Film Festival (RIFF). The founders and characters of the Nappy Roots series, Scales and Skinny Deville, will be on hand to meet their fans. Tickets cost $ 15 and are available at

The show features Nappy Roots as they set off on a road trip to craft breweries across the country as they seek to build their own brewery from scratch. The cult group of Rural Americans takes viewers on a cross-cultural journey through interviews with “local celebrities” and sightseeing in their hometown that demonstrates that any conversation can take place over a beer. Filled with humor mixed with conversation, entrepreneurship and innovation, RIFF attendees will be the first audience to watch the show’s pilot.

“We are thrilled with the inaugural screening of the ’40 Akers & a Brew ‘pilot and seeing the reactions from people,” said Scales. “We enjoyed the trip to visit craft breweries across the country and meet so many doping people. You can talk to anyone about anything over a cold beer.

“We are very proud to present 40 Akerz & a Brew,” said Maria Guerra-Stoll, CEO of PAM Studios. “We will entertain VIPs in the network all expressing interest in the project and we know the beauty of Rome, GA, as a natural backdrop for the show, will be an important selling tool. The Rome International Film Festival is the perfect place to introduce the pilot.

As one of the most unique hip hop groups, Nappy Roots has been a successful band since 2002. In 2003, they received American Music Award (AMA) nominations for Favorite Band, Duo or Group – Hip-Hop / R & B, Favorite New Artist – Hip-Hop / R & B, as well as the Soul Train Award.

Today, Nappy Roots runs 150 days a year, offers a Nappy Roots clothing line, reaches thousands of people on social media, and more.
