The biopic tells the story of the Olympian’s remarkable life and untimely death, showcasing her historic feats, but also her enduring impact on the entire world of sports and in the communities that needed her help and inspiration the most. 

Tiffany gushed:

I am looking forward to telling Flo-Jo’s story the way it should be told. My goal with this film is making sure that younger generations know my ‘she-ro’ Flo-Jo, the fastest woman in the world to this day, existed.

In addition to the biopic, Tiffany Haddish and Game1 are partnering on a documentary series and a podcast to support this feature film.
