Coming to you from Johanna and the Joey Team!
The media seems to portray TWO narratives of single black womanhood – the black woman who has been abandoned or deemed too independent for a relationship and the black woman for whom suitors come easily (if she could only find “the one”).
Written by Johanna Middleton, Joey is a moody rom-com about a perpetually single young black woman, content to do yoga to Fetty Wap and enjoy Spades nights with her girlfriends, until she meets a dude with whom she vibes. They have so much in common – except he’s not single…
It is a film for every woman who hasn’t quite figured out that magic formula of finding a match. More specifically, it explores how black women’s understanding of our own desirability comes into play in our single womanhood.

Joey will be directed by Laci Dent, and produced by Brett Takeshita and Girlie Stories Productions. The team is currently fundraising (check out the Indiegogo page!) and will begin production in January.
