Executive Producer Jessica Oyelowo Shares How ‘Lawmen: Bass Reeves’ and ‘Becoming King’ Got Made

Jessica Oyelowo is on a roll. The executive producer and her husband, David Oyelowo, recently signed a first-look deal with Apple TV+ via their Yoruba Saxon banner. The production company is behind recent hits like Lawmen: Bass Reeves, as well as Misan Harriman’s short The After, which has been nominated for an Oscar. The filmmaking power couple also appeared in the titles, with David leading both projects and Jessica recurring as a guest star in the former.

When we caught up with the actress/filmmaker, we wanted to know more about the person behind all the creative work, which also extends to music. In this installment of Get to Know the Filmmaker, you can catch all the details about her new album (M)OTHER and learn how both Lawmen: Bass Reeves and the new Paramount+ documentary Becoming King got made.
