Netflix Lands Culture-Shock Sorority Comedy, ‘Step Sisters’ for Release in January 2018

Netflix recently received rights to ‘Step Sisters,’ a comedy about a black college student in a white sorority scripted by ‘Dear White People’ writer and editor Chuck Hayward and directed by Drumline director Charles Stone III: 

“Netflix has landed worldwide rights to comedy film, Step Sisters.

The film, originally planned for a March theatrical release, was in limbo after Broad Green Pictures halted its production division. This impacted over 50 theatrical releases they had pending.

Scripted by Dear White People’s Chuck Hayward, the story centers on an ambitious black sorority girl who is enlisted by her dean to teach the art of black Greek stepping to a white sorority whose charter is about to be revoked. She does this so that she can get admitted to the law school of her dreams.

Jeffrey Soros, Simon Horsman, Ben Cory Jones, Lena Waithe and Matt Alvarez are producers.”
