Eight-time southeast Emmy award winning filmmaker Lauren Musgrove to direct film based on the book “Estranged Behaviour” by Tanita Ross-Cady
LOS ANGELES — After Purple Magnet Productions director Lauren Musgrove read the book, she knew the story had to be on the big screen. While searching for the perfect lead, she came upon Darielle Williams, a Trinidad born circus professional and stunt woman whose career has been absolutely remarkable.
Darielle performed as an Aerialist on the Formation tour with Beyonce, at the 2019 VMA’s with Missy Elliott, and she has worked with other artists such as Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull. You can read more about Darielle here: Dariellewilliams.com

The story is about a circus performer struggling to find meaning after she is forced to abandon her dreams and take a job as a bartender. Set in the city of New Orleans, this fantasy drama will test one’s belief about what their true purpose is. The long term goal is to take the short film to the festival circuit and seek additional funding for a full length TV series.
Darielle will be doing all the performances and stunts in this film. In addition to their incredible lead, Lauren and her producer Maggie Brown will bring together a talented array of racially diverse actors and musicians to showcase the spirit of New Orleans.
The time for unique tales to be told by underrepresented writers and creatives is NOW! “Estranged Behaviour” is on the forefront of this new cinematic shift.
