Jada Pinkett Smith has been on a roll this year — from executive producing the upcoming biopic King Richard and hosting the third season of the popular Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk, to reprising her role as Niobe in The Matrix 4, the actress has added yet another credit to her filmography with Netflix’s Redd Zone.

The film, produced by Pinkett Smith and husband Will Smith‘s Westbrook Studios, follows the true story of Tia Magee. Per Variety, the Baltimore native will play “a single mother who helps her sons and their high school football teammates, “The Bros,” heal after the murder of their best friend, Dominic Redd. One by one, the boys start moving into her house, and soon, 17 of “The Bros” are living under her roof. Eventually, all of them go to college, and four make it to the NFL.”

Brandon Magee, former Cleveland Brown, Tampa Bay Buccaneer, and Boston Red Sox athlete, is set to executive produce.

The NAACP Image Award winner shared the announcement on Instagram captioning the post “This beautiful story is a powerful example of how love and dedication from one person changed the lives of so many.”
