TYLER PERRY OPENS STUDIO IN ATLANTA – Tyler Perry is the first African-American to own a studio outright. The studio has no proprietary partners or corporate backing….
It’s owned fully by Perry the first-ever of its kind! Not to mentioned the sound stages were built on what was once a confederate army base in what Perry calls “Poetic Justice”
Perry is the creative director behind 22 movies, 20 plays, and eight TV shows. But that’s not all: the 50-year-old writer, director, and actorin Atlanta, featuring a dozen sound stages named after black Hollywood icons. The Star studded grand opening attended by everyone from Oprah to Halle Berry was the epitome of black excellence.
“You know, the studio’s gonna be what it is,” Perry said. “I’ll tell you what I’m most excited about next is pulling this next phase off, is building a compound for trafficked women, girls, homeless women, LGBTQ youth who are put out and displaced, somewhere on these 330 acres, where they’re trained in the business and they become self-sufficient. They’ll live in nice apartments. There’s daycare. There’s all of these wonderful things that allows them to reenter society and pay it forward again; That’s what I hope to do soon.” To learn more about Perry’s studio and the opening click on the link below!
