Reagan Gomaz-Preston is venturing back into familiar territory…sort of. With the help of her family and friends, the former Parent ‘Hood child star created Almost Home, a web series written, produced and co-directed by Mrs. Preston. Oh, and like Lena Dunham to Girls, Reagan stars in the YouTube feature, too.
The series follows a brother and sister (Lisa and DeJaun) who move halfway across the country after their mother’s death to start over and chase their dreams. The Matthew Cherry-directed segments star a blossoming bunch of actors, including Preston’s husband Dewayne Turrentine Jr., her sister-in-law Queen, Jackie Long, Denyce Lawton and Wesley Jonathan.
Reagan opened up to Vixen about working with her close-knit crew and creating opportunities for women of color. — Sharifa Daniels
