Exclusive: Numa Perrier Lands Lead in Director Jennifer Sharp’s Sophomore Feature, ‘A Great Movie’

Director Jennifer Sharp’s delightful directorial debut “I’m Through With White Girls” was a modest indie dramedy released in 2007, that enjoyed success on the film festival circuit, thanks in part to the charming and energetic performances of the film’s leads Anthony Montgomery and Lia Johnson. Scripted by Courtney Lilly (“Black-ish,” “The Cleveland Show,” “Everybody Hates Chris”), the film won multiple awards including the Best Film trophy at the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in 2007.

Now Sharp is set to direct her sophomore feature film which is titled “A Great Movie,” and has tapped actress/writer/producer/director herself Numa Perrier (also co-founder of the popular digital network and brand Black&SexyTV) to star in the film.

The official synopsis for “A Great Movie” reads: As a dedicated writer unsuccessfully pitches her script in Hollywood, her movie comes alive and intercuts with reality.
