Man and Wife

Man and Wife is a feature-length romantic dramedy set in present-day New Orleans, Louisiana, that follows couples and singles in different stages of their lives who cross paths as they deal with relationships, infidelity, and alternative lifestyles. My intention was to create an ensemble script by mixing the genres of romance, comedy, and drama with a predominately African-American cast. There is a shortage of romance films with a leading African-American cast, and I wanted to fill that void. With Man and Wife, I hoped to write a script that would cross over and entertain all demographics, as the characters experience universal issues of love, marriage, and trust.
