This year marked the end of an era for Tyler Perry’s filmmaking career, as the final movie in his Madea film series, A Madea Family Funeral, was released back in March. But as one door closes another one opens as the filmmaker announces that his first post-Madea movie, A Fall From Grace, will be an official Netflix release.
Now, along with the many other creative minds that have joined forces with Netflix, Tyler Perry can officially count himself among the bunch. As the thriller, A Fall From Grace, premieres on the streaming platform January 17, it will mark the first time a Perry-made movie is being released exclusively on Netflix.
The cast is set to include Crystal Fox, Phylicia Rashad, Bresha Webb, Cicely Tyson, and Tyler Perry himself. According to Netflix’s Strong Black Lead Twitter account, A Fall From Grace follows a divorced woman who “feels restored by a new romance,” but then “secrets soon start to erode her short-lived joy.” Netflix also provided the following synopsis on its A Fall From Grace title page:
When a law-abiding woman gets indicted for murdering her husband, her lawyer soon realizes that a larger conspiracy may be at work.
