Black&Sexy TV Co-Founder, Numa Perrier, has been tapped to star in Jennifer Sharp’s sophomore film, A Great Movie.

A Great Movie will follow a writer as she navigates mainstream Hollywood, pitching her script about a Black woman rediscovering a lost love in Mexico, which slowly transforms into a romantic comedy featuring an all-White cast. Perrier will portray the lead, Susan, a bankrupt and lonely woman traveling to Mexico in hopes of connecting with her first love, Luis.

Perrier is an actress, artist, writer, and filmmaker who starred in and wrote for the Black & Sexy hit web series The Couple which eventually landed a development deal at HBO with Spike Lee attached as Executive Producer.  She also starred in Nefertiti Nguvu’s acclaimed drama, In the Morning.  Perrier is also responsible for developing, producing, and writing highly acclaimed web series such as Roomieloverfriends and Hello Cupid (both licensed by BET), Yellow, Minute Man, and more.  She is currently in development for her script Jezebel which will be her feature film debut.

This is sure to be an exciting venture for Director-to-Watch, Jennifer Sharp. Her directorial debut, I’m Through With White Girls, traveled the film festival circuit. The indie dramedy won Best Film at the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in 2007.

Principal Photography of A Great Movie is set to being on January 27 in Isla Holbox Mexico for a 3-week shoot.
