Black-ish star Marsai Martin set to become youngest excutive producer in Hollywood

This spring the comedy “Little” hits theaters. Marsai Martin of Black-ish will co star with Actress Regina Hall. Regina and Martin play the role of Jordan Sanders. A very strict tech entrepreneur is transformed into a 13 year old version of herself, by a random act of black girl magic. Martin actually pitched the idea to Black-ish Executive Producer Kenya Barris when she was 10 years old. Phone calls were made after the season finale of Black-ish season 1.

The blockbuster producer Will Packer of hits like Ride Along and Girls Trip, was impressed by the maturity, of 10 year old Martin pitching the idea to the studio. Regina Hall is also one of the film’s Executive Producers and Issa Rae (star of HBO’s runaway hit Insecure). Also 13 year old Millie Bobby Brown is set to beome the youngest person to produce a major Hollywood film. However the fact remains that theres is a film releasing that was created by, starring, written, and directed by black women. This truly is an inspiration to the black community as well as black hollywood actors.
