Young, 15-year-old, Marsai Martin has been on fire this year! Being the youngest to score a first-look production deal with Universal, she is now producing a new feature comedy, “Queen” through her genius production banner.
The comedy feature will be written by Camilla Blackett, who has worked with Marsai in the past. The storyline is still under-wraps, but she took to Instagram and said, “Never not creating. 2020 is about to be one crazy year.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Marsai will have a lot of support in this project, as Joshua Martin, Carol Martin, Prince Baggett, and Camilla Blackett will co-produce. It will be overseen by Universal’s Senior VP Productions Sara Scott and Director of Development Lexi Barta.
With much support behind the scenes this young actress and producer revealed in a recent interview with Galore, her success in projects like, “Little” has been a team effort, “I don’t really see it as like, ‘oh, I did something huge,’ I really do see it as, ‘oh, it’s something cool that I did and there were so many people involved.’ I think a lot of people that are in the industry think that way as well because they are really just being themselves.”
While Marsai is mostly known for her roll on the ABC comedy, “Black-ish,” we are thrilled to see what this young superstar has in store 2020!
