Tyler Perry shot A Fall From Grace, his first film for Netflix, in just five days. Does that result in a tight film brimming with energy, or one with no time for perhaps important details? We discuss in the latest Low Key Podcast.
Did we enjoy Fall From Grace? You’ll have to listen to find out. But it’s fair to spoil that there’s a lot to like — a likable main character with relatable real-world circumstances, an impactful murder sequence, and the impeccable Phylicia Rashad like you’ve never seen her before.

Throughout this episode we also cover the legacy of Perry and the new Tyler Perry Studios lot in Atlanta that could change opportunities for minorities working to show off projects that are not receiving due attention.
Even if you don’t love the Tyler Perry-verse, this is a great episode to understand his legacy in Hollywood and beyond.

Michelle Sneed, an executive producer of A Fall From Grace and president of production and development at Tyler Perry Studios, told The Hollywood Reporter that Perry’s team was able to shoot the film so quickly in part because “we’ve known each other for a long time. We are like a family, and we’ve had our presence in Atlanta for 25 years now, which makes a difference.”
Besides Tyler Perry himself, the film stars Crystal R. Fox, Mehcad Brooks, Bresha Webb and Cicely Tyson.
