The Young Wife is one of Netflix’s future projects in collaboration with Higher Ground Productions (the production business formed by Barack and Michelle Obama). Here’s everything we know so far about the next Netflix family drama film that is currently in development.
Netflix first announced the film in February 2021, among seven other projects from Higher Ground Productions. Ada Twist, Scientist, Crip Camp, American Factory, and Fatherhood are among the titles already available on the service from the production business.
Rustin, set for publication in 2022, Jennifer Peedom’s Tenzing, and Angeline Boulley’s Firekeeper’s Daughter adaption are among their other forthcoming projects.
The following is a list of what was included in the first announcement:
“Tayarisha Poe’s feature film The Young Wife” is written and directed by Tayarisha Poe (Selah and the Spades). Celestina, 29, is followed on the day of her first wedding.
Or a party, rather than a wedding. Celestina is out of rhythm at a gathering where there is movement. The visitors pour in; a storm is approaching.”
Who is the author of ‘The Young Wife’?
The film is written and directed by Tayarisha Poe. Poe has directed episodes of The Twilight Zone and FX’s Dave, as well as being a part of The CW’s Two Sentence Horror Stories (which is available on Netflix in the United States).
Selah and the Spades is her most well-known film, which was launched on Amazon Prime Video in 2019 and is presently being produced as a TV series.
When will Netflix begin production on The Young Wife?
We can confirm that production began on February 28th and will run for around a month till March 29th, 2022, thanks to Variety Insight.
According to additional information obtained by What’s on Netflix, the show is now filming in the Georgia city of Darien.
On March 1st, Tayarisha Poe said on Twitter that she had a “wonderful day one,” implying that she had a nice first day of filming without stating so specifically.
