“Bob Trevino Likes It” tells the story of a people-pleasing young woman who unexpectedly forms a close bond with a grieving, childless man with the same name as her estranged father online. Inspired by a true story, Elam plays the Office Manager.

Reflecting on his experience, Detroit native Elam shared his enthusiasm about the project, “It was such a great experience being on the set of ‘Bob Trevino Likes It.’ The director, Tracie Laymon, created such a wonderful atmosphere of creativity that radiated throughout the entire cast.”

Phil is also slated to guest on Austin Radio station KOOP 97.1FM to celebrate the premiere and the recent release of his 1970s-inspired track, “My Name Is Coco Bean,” featuring his alter ego, Coco Bean, and legendary hip-hop icon, Snoop Dogg. The new track is featured on Spotify editorial playlists showcasing its wide-ranging appeal on the platform. “To release a track including Snoop Dogg is such a blessing. I am so thankful for everyone involved who helped to make this feature possible,” Elam remarked with gratitude.

Adding to the track’s allure, “My Name Is Coco Bean” has been remixed by famed remixer Eric Kupper (Usher, Cher, Miley Cyrus), introducing a new dimension to the song. This remix, alongside the original track, is currently available on Spotify and other major music platforms and was recently added to iHeartRadio’s 99.7 DA HEAT MIAMI.

Phil also serves as Music Supervisor to the new interview program INSPIRED LIVES, hosted by award-winning reporter Tony Fama, premiering on PBS in February 2024. The premiere episode features music legend Dionne Warwick and Shark Tank entrepreneur Daymond John.
