On February 14, 2020, Renaissance Women Productions will release to theaters the indie film FIRST LADY. The film stars Nancy Stafford (“Matlock”) and Emmy Nominated actor Corbin Bernsen (“L.A. Law”), and co-stars Burgess Jenkins (Remember the Titans), Jenn Gotzon Chandler (Frost/Nixon), Tanya Christiansen (The Hate U Give), and Benjamin Dane.
The film unites beloved actors Stafford and Bernsen, who both starred in popular legal dramas from the fabulous1980’s, Stafford in “Matlock” and Bernsen in “LA Law.” First Lady is a classic romantic comedy with the backdrop of presidential politics and royal charm.
This indie rom-com is the creative work of writer/director Nina May and is distributed through ArtAffects Entertainment. I had a chance to sit with Nancy Stafford and Nina May to reflect on creating good and classic entertainment for a time such as this.
