*It seems Carlton Jordan, the blogger behind CarltonJordan.com, has been stirring up his creative juices. He’s written and produced “Get The Pearls,” a teen R&B musical based in 1990.
Jordan, who’s also worked for The “Eve” Show, MTV, VH1, and numerous reality shows, is currently casting young Hollywood types for the project. He states:
“This film will be filled with the next generation of teen stars and musicians, along with cameos from your favorite 90s era legends! I am very much in love with the idea that this project aims to create a group of black teen queens and heartthrobs, maybe our very own ‘Breakfast Club’!”
“Pearls” pays homage to girl groups from the 90′s, and to films from that period such as “School Daze,” “House Party” and “Poetic Justice.” He adds it will also contain a splash of more contemporary films like “Mean Girls” and “Dreamgirls.”
Already cast are Skye Townsend, Kendall Amyre Ferguson, and a number of Hollywood’s Black teens. Townsend, star of BET’s online series “8 Days A Week,” is the daughter of actor/director Robert Townsend.
Also in talks is newcomer, Kendall Amyre Ferguson, whose debut as “Agnes Peabody” in the HUB series “Clue” catapulted her up the list of the next generation of young talent. Ferguson, who just signed to Atlantic Records, is set to play mean girl “Candy” – the leader of a rival “bougie” girl group The Pearls.
