Also in the film are Aunjanue Ellis, Vanessa Morgan and Edi Gathegi. Alexis Varouxakis of 1821 Pictures and Adrenaline Entertainment is producing, along with Victoria Bousis, with Charlie Dibe co-producing. Corey Large, Nick Garyfalmmos, Bader Alghanim, Gina Saracino and Gary Ousdahl are executive producing.

“This movie is quite unique,” said Varouxakis. “The writer-director is a woman. All the lead characters are women and at it’s core it is a love story, but it takes place in a harsh world where women have to hustle to survive. We have never seen a woman pimp before with a girlfriend.” He said that they are shooting in the heart of the Bronx, and Crokos also is working closely with a man of the cloth in the community who is trying to get kids out of the circle of gun violence that plagues the area. How great is that?

Filming is currently underway in New York.
