The film follows two African-American women at Ancaster, a liberal arts college in Boston Massachusetts, where the student body are predominantly white. The Master of the students. Gail Bishop, and a freshman begin to experience spooky activities ingrained in the college’s history.
Hall will play Gail, a queer, black master at Belleville house, who must deal with instances of racism as well as the supernatural events. The project follows Hall’s notable turn in the Shaft reboot/sequel, which premiered on Netflix outside of the USA. She will soon be seen in Season 2 of Showtime comedy Black Monday.
Other producers include Andrea Roa, Brad Becker-Parton and Josh Astrachan of the Animal Kingdom label.
