I Wanna Introduce You To A Very Special Lady

I want you to meet Tina.

For the last few years I have been looking for talented writers and directors who I could help reach their dreams. Those who have the gift but haven't had the opportunity. Those who are gifted at storytelling. Well, in my search of many I have found a few that I'm working on helping, but there was one that is so special and so unique that she is ready now.  Her name is Tina Gordon Chism. She is a writer and a first-time director. She has a new movie coming out on May 10th that I'm presenting called PEEPLES. This movie is hysterical. She did such a great job. I'm so proud of her.

I must tell you, it makes me feel great to be able to help usher her to her dreams. I love seeing the underdog get their shot. If y'all didn't put me in this position I couldn't help her. So thank you. I feel that there is much more room in this business and this is my first attempt at opening this door for another writer-director. I'm excited about the possibility and I'm excited about her… a young African-American woman getting her first shot. This is really cool.

I want you to go out and support her movie, PEEPLES. It is so funny. Craig Robinson and Kerry Washington lead an all-star cast in this comedy and they will truly have you laughing out loud. I'm very proud of this movie and I'm very proud of Tina. I'm telling you, you won't be disappointed. The movie is great and Tina is very special. Let's show her some love, OK?

I'll be talking to you about it as we get a little closer.

PEEPLES in theaters May 10th. GO TINA!!!!

    I am glad to hear you are for the underdog. I am too for the underdog and I have a friend who recently wrote a book and it will blow your mind. All I ask is that you just read the book and I just thought wow this should really be a movie. It is her testimony and she just laid it all out their and at the end you see how God has just manifested in this young lady. I do not do this at all but if it is God's will you read this and pick up this book and read it. You will not be dissappointed. "The Color of My Wings" Zanetta Collins.

Man, your short commercials with Oprah are the bomb!!very ingenious and hilarious.. please keep them coming..... :).. I know tooooo.... :) I know ..... lol... Haves and haves not will be something else as with the others....

    I was watching an old show that I grew up on the other day on youtube, The Carol Burnett Show and I was thinking (as I always do) how the world really needs to laugh more. Shows like these rocked and they'd make me cry, Id laugh so hard. I believe Im going to be a true fan of Tina's. Im so thrilled for her. Thank you Mr Perry for searching for new talent, sharing God's blessings and giving all of us hope and inspiration.
