Tyler Perry is broadening his cinematic universe with the addition of a new Netflix steamy thriller titled “Mea Culpa.”
The film stars and is produced by Kelly Rowland, and it marks the latest venture from the prolific producer, writer, and director.
What’s Mea Culpa about?
Everyone is hiding something in this crime thriller.
Criminal defense attorney Mea Harper and her husband Kal are at a crossroads as the couple navigates difficulties in their marriage and finances.
So when the murder case of artist Zyair Malloy lands in her lap — and with the potential to make partner at her firm — Mea sees an opportunity to keep her family afloat.
But when she tries to uncover whether her cagey-yet-seductive client is telling her the full truth, what she learns might unravel more than just her legal case.
Mea Culpa will be on Netflix, February 23.
Speaking to Netflix about the thriller, Tyler Perry explained,
This idea came to me because I love all of those older thrillers from the ’80s and ’90s, It was fun to explore the best and worst of humanity through the genre of an exotic thriller.”
This collaboration with Netflix represents a creative partnership where Tyler Perry will undertake the roles of writer, director, and producer for feature films as part of a multi-year first-look deal.
