EXCLUSIVELY ON HULU
Thursday, June 15
When Billie starts dating a mysterious new girlfriend, she suffers blackouts and strange visions that feel like she’s living the same moments of her life over and over.
“Jagged Mind,” a horror feature starring Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Shannon Woodward from 20th Digital Studio and Hulu Originals will have its World Premiere at the American Black Film Festival (abff.com) in Miami Beach on June 14. The film will debut exclusively on Hulu on June 15 and Disney+ internationally at a later date.
Directed by Kelley Kali (“I'm Fine (Thanks for Asking)”), “Jagged Mind” is about a woman plagued by blackouts and strange visions that lead her to discover she’s stuck in a series of time loops, possibly related to her mysterious new girlfriend. Maisie Richardson-Sellers (“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Originals”) stars as “Billie,” alongside Shannon Woodward (“Westworld,” “Raising Hope”) as her girlfriend, “Alex”.
Kali was tapped to direct this feature based off the short film “First Date,” which was included in the first season of 20th Digital Studio’s “Bite Size Halloween.” The feature, now titled “Jagged Mind,” is written by Allyson Morgan (“Sitting”). “Jagged Mind” is part of the studio’s existing slate of horror features for Hulu, including “Grimcutty,” “Matriarch,” “Clock,” and the upcoming “Appendage” and “The Mill.”
“Jagged Mind” was developed by 20th Digital Studio with David Worthen Brooks, Arbi Pedrossian, and Jenna Cavelle as executive producers. Production services were carried out by the film’s producer Daniela Ruiz through her company, Palabra Productions. Kelley Kali and Congyu E also serve as producers.
