Tyler Perry to Direct Police Brutality Drama Black, White & Blue for Amazon Studios

Tyler Perry is set to write, direct, and produce the police brutality drama Black, White & Blue for Amazon Studios, where the filmmaker signed a four-picture deal back in November.

The film follows a woman, Fela Blackburn, whose life is shattered when she loses her husband, Rodney Blackburn, at the hands of a police officer. Determined to get to the bottom of the incident and get justice, she leans on her best friend, Marley Wells (Kat Graham), who is a lawyer, and her husband, Tony Wells (Tyler Lepley), a former cop turned private investigator, to use their influence to find the truth. Fela soon learns that her entire world is rooted in lies and betrayal.

In addition to Graham (The Vampire Diaries) and Lepley (Harlem), the cast includes Meagan Tandy (Batwoman), Josh Adeyeye (Ruthless), RonReaco Lee (First Wives Club), Jimi Stanton (Your Honor), Shannon LaNier (God’s Not Dead 3), and Nick Barrotta (The Oval).

Angi Bones and Will Areu will also produce for Tyler Perry Studios along with Jamall Ellzy.

Perry is currently directing a pair of movies for Netflix — the WWII drama Six Triple Eight starring Kerry Washington and Oprah Winfrey, and the thriller Mea Culpa starring Kelly Rowland — which has released his last several films, including A Jazzman’s Blues, A Fall From Grace, and A Madea Homecoming. The latter served as the 11th film in the hit franchise, which has grossed more than $550 million worldwide.

Perry is represented by WME.
