Actress Garcelle Beauvais and producer Lisa L. Wilson have teamed up to form Beauvais Wilson Productions, a new multimedia production company.
BWP's aim is to focus on developing and producing stories with a diverse voice in television, film, digital and independent projects. The banner's mission, according to the producers, is to create dynamic content that breaks barriers and make movies that matter.
"We've always had a love for movies and filmmaking. Now seeing how the industry has changed, there's a lot more need for content across the board. Our company will give us the opportunity to control the narrative and create dynamic stories," said Beauvais.
The actress said the company will produce projects for both film and television, "creating stories that are entertaining and hopefully will make a difference."
She added, "Women like Nina Jacobson, Drew Barrymore and Ava DuVernay have opened the door for more women producers."
Beauvais starred on The Jamie Foxx Show and has countless TV credits to her name. She most recently was seen as the host of GSN's design reality series Window Warriors and as a host on Fox's entertainment-news talk show Hollywood Today Live. Beauvais will appear in this summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming. She previously produced the 2013 movie And Then There Was You.
Wilson is an Emmy-winning producer, writer and development exec hailing from Houston, working in live news and entertainment, musical performances and scripted television.
