"Just Wright" Director Sanaa Hamri Teaming With Debra Martin Chase For ABC Musical Film

Director Sanaa Hamri, known for helming Just Wright starring Queen Latifah and Common, has just been tapped for a new ABC Family, two-hour musical film production.

The project, still in the early development stage, reunites her with famed executive producer Debra Martin Chase. They collaborated on The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 and Just Wright.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie…”centers on Harper Hutton, who drinks a mysterious elixir that shaves decades off of her life. Under the spell of sorts, she attends the wedding of her estranged daughter in disguise, with the intent of stopping her from marrying a playboy.”

Hamri’s additional tv work includes directing episodes of Men In Trees, Shameless and Desperate Housewives.

Chase, also known for producing Lemonade Mouth and The Cheetah Girls franchise, is also producing the current Sparkle remake in development.

Good post!

As always, it is good to see women of color doing things behind the camera.

I wish there was some news about Nzingha Stewart. She did some nice treatments/directing for some music videos. I would like to see what vision she has for feature films.


Sounds like a cute story.

Men In Trees, I liked. Didn’t know she worked on it.

Just Wright, I didn’t care for. lol. Congrats and good luck to her!
