Jubilee Mag was invited by TV One on set while filming their new movie starring husband and wife duo Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker. In the film Downsized, Ebony (Nicole) and Michael (Boris) were forced into a modern “shotgun” wedding after becoming teenaged parents, putting their personal goals on hold in order to support their family. Amazingly, the two high school sweethearts manage to overcome the odds and establish a seemingly ideal life for themselves.

However, the success that initially was meant to strengthen their family has become the very thing that is driving them apart. As a result, Michael desperately tries to hold onto everything he’s worked his entire life to gain. This leads the family on an unconventional adventure to restore the faith, hope, and trust that initially brought them together.

The film also stars Alexus Lapri Geier as Madison, Racquel Bianca John as Michelle, Isaiah John as Mike, Jr. and Tia Hendricks as Malaysia. “Downsized” is written by Michelle McKissick (2016 ABFF Screenplay Finalist 2016) and is directed by Rhonda Baraka. It is also produced for TV One by Swirl Films and is executive produced by Eric Tomosunas.

Boris and Nicole have a solid history with Atlanta. They started their family here and it gave them the privacy they needed to to not be under the microscope as “Hollywood stars”.

The film will premiere at ABFF in June and is slated to premiere on TV One in August 2017. Check out the pics from Downsized and our visit on set!
