With 'Little,' Marsai Martin Becomes The Youngest Black Executive Producer In Hollywood History
Marsai Martin will hold the title as the youngest black executive producer in Hollywood history, as the release of her film Little is slated to hit theaters in the spring.
“It was one of my most favorite films growing up,” Martin said of the Tom Hanks classic. “After the Season 1 finale of Black-ish, we told Kenya Barris about it, and he called Will [Packer] and said: ‘Yo, you know the girl who plays Diane on Black-ish? She has this dope idea!’”
The trailer for the comedy was released yesterday (Jan. 9), to rave reviews from several corners of the Internet, who (like us) are genuinely excited about the film's release in a few months.
Kill it Marsai.
So happy to finally be able to share the trailer, so proud of the things accomplished since we started this and eternally grateful to you guys for listening when others didn’t take us seriously ♥️ @TracyYOliver https://t.co/gFvElJrgGu
