Today, Swirl Films announces a new production partnership with Tami Roman and Jill Ramsey of Roman Ramsey Productions for “Whatever It Takes,” an original holiday dramedy set to premiere later this year on BET+.
The holidays are typically a time when people gather and love fills the room and everyone’s hearts. In “Whatever It Takes,” however, Santa’s big bag contains nothing but people’s emotional baggage. When everything is revealed, chaos ensues, and everyone must learn how to overcome unexpected obstacles. This film combines comedy, drama, and the warmth of the holiday season to remind viewers that sometimes you have to go to any length to find love and happiness.
“We wanted to create a film that would not only entertain but also resonate with people during the holiday season,” said Tami Roman. “It’s a story that showcases the beauty of love and the power of forgiveness, even in the face of the most challenging situations.”
“As a female-led production company, it is our mission to always give the proper representation of other women – especially black women. This film encompasses that; light-hearted, romance, fun, intertwined with real-life circumstances nonetheless,” said Roman Ramsey co-founder, Jill Ramsey.
“Working with Tami and Jill on this movie has been such an enjoyable journey. I believe ‘Whatever It Takes’ is a story that will connect with viewers and inspire them to treasure the time they spend with their loved ones, especially around the holidays!” said Swirl Films founder, Eric Tomosunas.
Directed by Tailiah Breon, “Whatever It Takes” promises to resonate with audiences everywhere. With its perfect blend of humor, drama, and heartfelt moments, the film will offer viewers a refreshing take on a familiar story, demonstrating that love and family can help us overcome even the most difficult circumstances.
