“We are thrilled our new comedy is going from festivals to living rooms,” said co-creator Rasheed Green. “Audiences can expect a comedy with a unique and humorous perceptive.”

ABOUT THE GREEN BROTHERS:
In 2006, Rasheed and Saeed Green – who are also identical twins – contracted a filmmaker they knew to shoot a music video for a recording artist they worked with. Intrigued by the videography, they decided to spice up the look and feel of the video; and from there…they knew. Motivated by this experience, the brothers began formulating movie ideas and scripts, and soon after, decided to invest in digital production equipment and other sophisticated editing software.
Eventually, Their writing and directing skills garnered the attention of Urban Home Entertainment, a locally-based distribution company that boasts titles by worldwide figures such as Tyler Perry, Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, and Ron White to name a few. From there, a partnership was formed. Behind the scenes, the brothers are currently developing several scripts which they cannot wait to share with their viewers; some being surprisingly autonomous from the realms of comedy.
