Meet the Kids
Christina Wren most recently released her comedy series, Hicksters, that follows a spunky Hijabi and her metro Black husband who inherit a farm in Trump country and begin their wildest adventure as the new neighbors no one could have expected. Hicksters was a Sundance Lab Finalist and was inspired by Christina’s life as the daughter of a dad from the Middle East and a mom from Iowa who then herself grew up in urban America.
Christina has produced branded content for clients including Travel Channel, HGTV, PBS and Discovery Digital. She produced 80 live action segments of the Emmy Award winning children's show, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, as well as produced the feature films Moon and Sun and Rehabilitation of the Hill. She is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch Drama School and it was here she started dabbling in writing/content creation.
She produced the documentary, Streetball, following South Africa’s 2008/2009 Homeless World Cup teams and shortly after wrote her first feature film, Saudade?, following a teenager who hops a bus to New York City in search of her runaway brother by following his work as a street artist. Saudade? quietly explores how young people become homeless as you slowly learn your main characters are all on the verge of or now fully living on the street.
Christina grew up straddling communities culturally, economically and regionally. Reflecting the nuances of the worlds and characters she knows and loves are at the forefront of her body of work, as her life experiences are often in direct opposition to what is commonly portrayed in mass media.
Demetrius Wren recently released his latest narrative feature, Rehabilitation of the Hill, which explores how the ongoing effects of gentrification play out in a Black community in Pittsburgh through a You've Got Mail-esque love story. He graduated from the FSU Film School, concentrating in screenwriting and directing, where he was mentored by Academy Award winner Barry Jenkins.
Demetrius wrote his first play Legends, Myths and Hieroglyphs about single mother families in rural Black America, told through the eyes of a young child, which had a run in New York and was called by Christopher Durang one of the most original scripts he’s read.
Demetrius directed the Emmy Award winning Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood's early seasons’ live action content and directed the independent documentary Streetball about the 2008/2009 South African Homeless World Cup teams and the state of South Africa’s homeless population leading up to the country hosting the World Cup. He’s co-directed VR films for the United Nations and directed the independent features Saudade? and Moon and Sun.
He’s currently developing his screenplay, Heartland, following a group of Black kids in a blue collar town who discover a portal to a magical world where they must connect with their lost parents to save the world as they know it, battling African mythological creatures and spirits and ultimately becoming the heroes they were destined to be. Think Attack the Block meets the Chronicles of Narnia.
