Join us for a special ENCORE presentation of an I SEE U episode featuring Oscar-nominated actress, Aunjanue Ellis. The veteran actor has been working in the film and television industry for three decades and she's finally receiving recognition from the Academy in the category for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the mother of Venus and Serena Williams in the movie, KING RICHARD – which was also nominated this year for Best Picture.
