Tyler Perry Studios and DeVon Franklin are collaborating with the world’s largest streaming studio on a multi-year, multi-picture first-look arrangement for faith-based films.

Naturally, Franklin and Perry will produce the movie through Tyler Perry Studios. The first film produced by the new team is titled R&B and is characterized as a modern-day version of Mike Elliot and Cory Tynan’s biblical story Ruth and Boaz.

This is the official description. “R&B is a contemporary recreation of the narrative of Ruth and Boaz, one of the most famous love stories in the Bible. Set in Tennessee, R&B tells the story of a young woman who flees the Atlanta music industry to care for an old widowed woman, and in the process finds the love of her life and the mother she never had.”

Perry stated in a statement, “I’m so excited to be working with DeVon on this and future projects,” and he added, “I think in this polarizing world, and at a time when the world seems to be getting colder by the day, we both share the common goal of wanting to spread some good.” And there is no better place than Netflix.” According to Franklin, “Tyler and I have been great friends for over 15 years, so when he called me to team up on movies that can uplift the human spirit, I jumped at the chance and we couldn’t have a better partner than Netflix to help us inspire the world.”

Niija Kuykendall, Vice President of Netflix Film, stated, “We couldn’t be more excited to expand our relationship with Tyler Perry Studios.” Tyler and DeVon have made some of the most amazing films in the faith-based space, so they are ideal collaborators to help us share even more of these tales with our members.”
