# Pie chart Data
slices_hours = [20,20,25,30,5]
activites = ['SciFi', 'Comedy', 'Action', 'Romance', 'Drama']
colors = ['Red','Green','Yellow','Blue','Purple']

fig = plt.figure(1, figsize=(6,6))
ax = fig.add_axes([0.2, 0.2, 0.8, 0.8])
plt.title('Favourite Type of Movie')

_, _, autotexts = ax.pie(slices_hours, labels=activites, colors=colors, startangle=90, autopct='%.1f%%', pctdistance=0.5, textprops={'color':"black"})
