Three The Reel Way

Q: What’s the name of the project that Samuel L. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson-Jackson produced?

The answer is legacy and has been for several decades now. Are you familiar with Zoe Jackson?

You know LaTanya. I was first smitten with her exceptional role diversity work in The Dorothy Dandridge Story, 1999:

In the film, there is a scene when LaTanya (portraying Dorothy’s mother’s partner, AUNTIE) is helping the young Dorothy get dolled up for her wedding to one of the Nicholas Brother. Dorothy’s mother (portrayed by Loretta Devine) starts to sing a chorus of “Love.” She pitches her voice to Soprano and sings one word, “Love.” Dorothy’s sister (portrayed by Cynda Williams), pitches her voice to Alto and melodically joins her mother to the tune of “Love.” Alas, Auntie, (portrayed by LaTanya) pitches her voice in Baritone and flattens the harmonious preamble that seques into the married life of Dorothy and Harold Nicholas (portrayed by Oba Babatunde). I was struck by the Baritone note and what it ended up meaning in script. As small as this scene may have been it was paramount to me in story and I loved LaTanya’s delivery. If you have not seen Mrs. Jackson in ACTION in this script, you owe it to yourself to rectify.

You know Samuel L., and like his wife, LaTanya, Sam’s film credits are long and hard-hitting. Ebony Magazine (Kevin Powell) published a piece on him about a decade ago, titled: He’s a Bad Mother, and while they run down what seems like a million Film/TV titles and accolades — today it appears that Sam’s CV has doubled. Did you know that Megan Thee Stallion will join him in Marvel Cinematic Universe? There’s never a boring minute when Samuel L. is all up in it.

DISNEY +Plus Subscribers: Next month Sam will be blazing alongside other Marvel lovers in SECRET INVASION. Jackson and Action are inseparable.

IMDB boasts that Sam is associated with 198 film projects to LaTanya’s 98, and both have Upcoming Projects on the horizon. Zoe is the work that Hollywood did not create. Zoe is a Jackson Production and is sharply seated in the chair of the Producer.

Know Zoe.
With almost a decade under her industrious belt and 16 Television Producer Credits, Zoe is making her own way. Perhaps you are familiar with her work:


The screen-scripted life is my life and I’m all into it.
Calling the shots on reality? A good Producer can do it.

I don’t foresee Sam or LaTanya going “reality television” on us yet,
but if show writers are not compensated exciters, stop: Reality TV may be the next.

‘Nothing wrong with it. I do enjoy a loosely-scripted show
of BRAVO’s beloved franchise: RHO.

Not that the Jacksons need to display loose Actions like so those in ATLANTA,
but to be real, within the Jackson family will – we could come-up on some good banter.

Great dialogue remains the answer to what ails most relationships.
Samuel and LaTanya made a pact and remain connected at the hip.

Action will always play out better than any monotone lip.
So whenever I get wind of the Jackson Band, I bring out my publishing tip.

Kudos to the doting parents of Zoe Jackson.
She’s all grown up and producing with passion.

Multimedia is my technical modality, and Griot is a faction.
My name is Qui,
and I’m a fan of “WE” — specifically of that Jackson ACTION.
