Jeanine Daniels / Writer
Jeanine Daniels is an acclaimed writer, producer, director, and actor who honed her skills at KCET, ABC, Warner Bros., and Disney Animation after college. In 2008, Jeanine co-founded Black&SexyTV, a digital content studio and distribution network focusing on content starring people of color. While there she spearheaded the network’s most successful shows, and optioned the first series she created, The Couple to HBO. Various other shows she created and/or produced were licensed to BET and Centric, including her first feature film, That Guy (The Movie). A spinoff of her That Guy series, Becoming Nia, is currently being studied at Spelman College.
In 2015, Jeanine launched nine27 Entertainment, her own full service production company. Under her nine27 banner, Jeanine wrote, directed, and produced a series of 5 Black History Month vignettes for TV One. “The Soulcial Movement”, was a series featuring African-American agents of change who use social media as their primary tool for imparting positive change within social movements. Also in late 2015, Jeanine received an Honorable Mention Award from The African American Women in Cinema at the Women of Excellence Awards.
Jeanine is currently creating original content and developing a digital platform that will highlight the voices and everyday stories of people of color. She thrives when she’s telling authentic stories about environments and people that aren't typically highlighted. Her old fans have followed her across platforms from YouTube to VHX to Periscope and Snapchat, while new ones are joining from the Netherlands, China, and Brazil. Her latest Snap thread, #midgnightmission, is just one of a handful that has caught the attention of publications like Essence magazine.
She is repped by ICM Partners and managed by 5 Streams.
