“Getting to direct such a fun script, with the brilliance of Tichina Arnold and Tami Roman leading a cast of talented actors was a no-brainer for me. I love comedic stories with messages and hearts, and these actors delivered in every way,” said Terri Vaughn.
Clarence Williams IV: “Writing this film has been a dream come true. I’m immensely grateful for the opportunity provided to me by Worldwide Entertainment and Media and BET to contribute to a legacy of storytelling within a network that has long celebrated the richness of Black culture.”
