The film is a co-production with Liza Chasin’s 3dot Productions, Kerry Washington’s Simpson Street, and Aevitas Entertainment.

Emmy Award winner Kerry Washington stars in the upcoming film (The Prom, American Son, Little Fires Everywhere). Washington also stars in the upcoming Netflix film The School For Good And Evil.

Liza Chasin, who has a multi-year first-look deal with Netflix, for 3dot Productions; Kerry Washington and Pilar Savone for Simpson Street; Todd Shuster for Aevitas Entertainment.

NAACP Image Award winner Nichelle Tramble Spellman (Truth Be Told) will adapt the screenplay based on the memoir by Diane Cardwell.
