Los Angeles, CA, June 2, 2022 — Writer and executive producer Ericka Nicole Malone debuted her award-winning movie, Remember Me: The Mahalia Jackson Story, at the Pan African Film Festival earlier this year.

Well known for building complex, relatable characters, Malone continues to blaze a trail for women of color in the male-dominated entertainment industry with her combination of skills as an actress, writer, director and producer.

“As a writer, you don’t just want to tell a story; you don’t just want to tell an African American story; you want to tell a human story,” Malone said during a recent interview.

Her productions are a testament to her kaleidoscope of talent for telling human stories and connecting with audiences on multiple levels:

- Malone wrote the script and served as an executive producer with Phillip Robinson on Remember Me: The Mahalia Jackson Story, which honors Jackson’s legacy in Gospel Music, Civil Rights and as a shining example of a powerful Black woman. The movie features R&B recording artist Ledisi in the lead role, and the director is another woman of color, Denise Dowse.

Mahalia Jackson

- Della is a one-hour television drama featuring a Black vigilante in urban Kentucky who protects women from abusive partners — often resorting to violence when she rises to their defense.

- Dreams From the Edge is a short film about a young girl auditioning in Hollywood. Her mother is a former actress and only has negative things to say about the industry. Ultimately, the tables turn, and the daughter must help her mother find her path in life again.

- Malone also serves as executive producer for the animated feature and future TV series JG and the BC Kids, written and created by acclaimed actress Janet Hubert. The story follows Janet Granite, aka JG, a super intelligent, athletic scientist and inventor who travels the world to find special kids.

Ericka Nicole Malone is a “quadruple threat” as an actress, writer, director and producer. She has written, directed and produced 10 stage plays through her production company, Ericka Nicole Malone Entertainment, LLC, along with her business partner Phillip Robinson, including the smash touring musical stage play, In Love with Tyrone.

Her provocative writing style and keen ability to connect with her audience has made her an unmistakable figure in entertainment.
