*Los Angeles, CA – Big congratulations are in order for the cast of “Little,” starring the youngest executive producer in history, Marsai Martin.
Hollywood’s self-proclaimed “quirky,” confident young actress pitched the idea of this film to “Black’ish” creator, Kenya Barris, at the tender age of ten, and just a few years later EURweb is on the scene of the blue carpet premiere of this power-packed movie, starring Regina Hall and Issa Rae.
Famous names and faces came out to the Regency Village Theatre to show support at the premiere including Kelly Rowland (singer/actress), Luke James (“Little”), Bresha Webb (“Marlon”), Kenya Barris (Black’ish), and movie producer Will Packer.
On the heels of a moderated panel at Atlanta’s iconic historically black college, Spelman, the climate is one of black women empowerment which was very important for Marsai Martin who says that when she was growing up, she didn’t see many women who looked like her on television.

EUR’s Robin Ayers asked Will Packer about his Spelman experience.
“It was incredible”, he said. “There were people in the audience at Spelman that are going to be the next Tina Gordon’s, Marsai Martin’s, Regina Hall’s, and Issa Rae’s.”
“Little” stars an all-black leading cast, directed by Tina Gordon, writing by black women with all the producers and executive producers being black men including Will Packer, Kenya Barris, Preston Holmes, and Josh Martin (Marsai’s father).
Young actor, Keith Williams, who also looks to Marsai for inspiration and boldness in his own career says, “It inspires me to know that I can do anything.”
“Little” opens nationwide in theaters April 12, 2019.
