Letitia Wright (Black Panther) will star in Dominic Savage’s female-led anthology series I Am.
Each episode of the three-part series has been written and developed in a collaboration between Wright and Dominic Savage, with improvised dialogue offering a thought-provoking exploration of contemporary female experiences.
Letitia Wright leads I Am Danielle, which also features CJ Beckford (The Trial of Christine Keeler) and Sophia Brown (Giri/Haji).
Wright commented: “Collaborating with Dominic Savage has been an amazing experience. His unique and sensitive style of directing has stretched me as an artist.
“I’m so proud that we came together on a story that we both felt was important to explore and share with the world.”
Savage added: “Making this film with Letitia was so exciting, invigorating, and full of creative joy. It is exactly how I love to work. In complete partnership and understanding.
“We were so in tune with the story we were telling, and each day was purely instinctive, challenging, and always truthful. I’m proud to be able to bring this story of love with all its difficulties to the screen.”
The series will shine a light on themes such as trust, relationships and mental health.
Suranne Jones (Gentleman Jack) will also lead one of the episodes entitled I Am Victoria, starring alongside Ashley Walters (Top Boy).
