Description

Best known to Jamaicans for her long-standing role in the television soap opera The Young and the Restless, Rowell and her team will be in the island for a few days to film segments of a new prime-time soap opera television movie, The Rich and the Ruthless. “I have always loved Jamaica... been going there since the 1980s and the beauty of the island is seen in its music, dance, visual and culinary arts, as well as the beauty of the country has always intrigued me,” she told the Jamaica Observer, as she took a shooting break in Los Angeles yesterday. “I always knew that I would be able to use this for cinematic purposes one day... timing is everything.” Jamaica’s comedy king Oliver Samuels is also part of the cast for this series, which includes Alesha Renee, Mykel Shannon Jenkins, Chrystale Wilson, Michael Colyar, Elizabeth Carlisle, Shadoe Stevens, Valenzia Algarin, Starletta Dupois, and Michael Tucci. “In a time of breathtaking discord around race, gender, and economic inclusion, I am proud as executive producer, director and co-writer to present The Rich and the Ruthless, which embodies all that entertainment and media can and should be,” said Rowell. While on set in Jamaica, Rowell will utilise a heavy concentration of local talent behind the camera, noting she has long recognised the breadth of talent which exists locally to satisfy the technical needs of a production.
