We are excited about Atlanta’s own Derek Watkins who choreographed and arranged the homage to The Breakfast Club by the cast of Grown-ish!  Derek, better known as Fonzworth Bentley, is an American actor, producer, and author.  He is perhaps best known for being Sean Comb’s former personal assistant and landed a role in the MTV reality show Making the Band 2.  He also starred in his own show “From Gs to Gents” and he became a New York Times bestselling author for his etiquette manual, Advance Your Swagger: How to Use Manners, Confidence, and Style to Get Ahead.

 

I had a chance to see Derek & his wife Faune Chambers Watkins at a red carpet event here in LA!
