The Chi

Gallagher’s production department was hired to produce the red-carpet premiere of Showtime’s The Chi, a new drama by creator Lena Waithe, and executive producer and musician Common. The star-studded affair was held at the private Downtown Independent Theatre. The intimate venue served as the perfect backdrop for deep discussion on the heavy subject matter of the program. Gallagher was tasked with full production for the event, employing all creative rolls from stage management, to cue-to-cue creation, to audio visual management and more. Following the screening — which was introduced by Waithe after a joyous standing ovation — guests made their way to The Container Yard in L.A.’s Little Tokyo for the after party, also produced by Gallagher, where they dined on deep-dish pizza from Chicago staple Lou Malnati’s, Chicago-style hot dogs, tacos and more before hitting the dance floor to celebrate the series’ debut.
