REVOLT’s new interview series “You Good?” is hosted by Terrence J. On it, the media personality speaks to his friends about their time social distancing and COVID-19, and much more.

This week, REVOLT debuted its latest interview series “You Good?” hosted by Terrence J, and its featured guest was Emmy-nominated film producer Will Packer.

Since 2018, Will has produced 28 films that have grossed over $1 billion combined at the box office with movies including Girls Trip, Ride Along and Think Like a Man. The Florida native is also the founder of his self-titled production companies Will Packer Productions and Will Packer Media. Times have changed since Will’s last project was released and with the majority of the world put on strict stay-at-home orders due to COVID-19, Terrence and his friend linked up—virtually that is—to talk about the pandemic and their experiences social distancing.

Will gave his thoughts on grooming during a pandemic, the effect it’s had on the entertainment industry, and many more on the convo. Check out five highlights from the premiere episode below and be sure to tune in each week for a new episode!

1. Will gives pandemic grooming tips

Coronavirus may have us stuck in the house, but now is not the time to slack on your personal grooming. “If you’re not careful, you will go through this quarantine without bathing, without brushing your teeth, without personal care. You will look grizzly,” Will says. However, with salons and barbershops closed until the unforeseeable future, many of us have been forced to take matters into our own hands.

2. Surviving quarantine is a mental challenge 

Since March, people have been advised to stay at home, practice social distancing, and to go out only if it is absolutely necessary. All over America, businesses and schools shut down, and people began transforming their living rooms into work offices and classrooms for their children.

This way of life has become our new normal. But, with a positive mindset, Will tells Terrance that we will get through this. “It’s a mental challenge, a mental balance that you have to have with yourself to get through an event like this. A time period like this,” Will explains.

While many of us miss outside and Sunday brunch with our friends, staying home and stopping the spread of the virus is what’s most important right now. “In the scheme of things, we’re going to look back and say, ‘Yeah, remember that month and a half, two months, three months,’ and we will have moved on,” Will adds. “We’ll look back and say it was a crazy time, but it didn’t last forever.”

3. COVID-19’s affect on media 

Between DJ D-Nice’s “Club Quarantine” and twerk sessions on Tory Lanez’s “Quarantine Radio” on Instagram Live, the way we create and consume content has been shifted by the pandemic.

Folks are finding themselves heading to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu to satisfy their entertainment needs. And with Hollywood on pause, content creators like Will have also had to shift the way they do business in these ever so changing times. The film producer explains that while he has had to put many projects on hold, he has also sold projects because of the growing necessity for content considering the fact that more people are at home more.

According to the movie exec, Hollywood is just trying to figure out what this all means. “Will people go to the theaters after this is over? I think they will, but maybe not in the same amount that they used to,” Will explains. “I think there will be more content available at home after this is over.”

4. COVID-19’s severe impact on black and brown people

According to a Washington Post analysis of early data from jurisdictions across the country, it was found that the novel Coronavirus appears to be affecting and killing African Americans at a disproportionately higher rate compared to white Americans. The article also stated that black counties have three time the rate of infections and nearly six times the rate of deaths as majority-white counties.

People of color tend to have higher rates of underlying health conditions and less access to care. Not to mention, a large amount of African Americans are “essential” workers and many lack access to adequate information on the virus. “We’re generally and generationally unhealthy as people. When the health care system is overrun, those will be the people that don’t get the ventilators,” Will says, adding “those will be the people that are first to pass unfortunately because [it] will probably be given to someone younger that doesn’t look like them.” However, he offers two solutions. “The best we can do is do our part and take this serious. The second thing is to vote,” the exec affirms.

5. Voting is crucial to your health

If we learn anything from this pandemic, it’s that voting is crucial to our health. It’s not only important to vote during the presidential elections, but during gubernatorial elections, as well.

Many states have either be doing well during Coronavirus or falling behind depending on their local politicians. While some statesmen have decided to reopen up their state’s economy early despite warnings not to, others have taken a more cautious approach and have extended their lock-down orders.

If there was ever a time that you see the impact, the stakes of what happens when you put people in powerful positions and I’m not just talking about 45 up there in D.C. I’m talking about mayors, chief of police,” Will says. “I’m talking about governors. I’m talking about legislators. Right now, we’re seeing that it does matter whether we use or don’t use our voting power.”

Times are uncertain. But, as Will says that “we will get through this.” He adds, “The question is, what’s next? How do we put people in place that will consider us? Consider our plight as a priority going forward.”
