Film alumna Aisha Porter-Christie '13 has signed with Creative Artist Agency (CCA) for representation. Currently, Porter-Christie is a consulting producer on the upcoming Disney+ series, Daredevil: Born Again.
"It definitely means more opportunity. Access to bigger and better projects with wider audiences. Access to top-tier actors. It will allow me to elevate to the next level of my career especially as I transition from television to film and look to start directing features," she told the Jamaica Observer.
Porter Christie, who spent her childhood in rural Jamaica, is a television writer and producer who has already worked on many projects. She is also an executive producer on the upcoming Amazon Prime Video series Gen V, an American superhero streaming television series, and a supervising producer and writer on The Girls on the Bus, HBO Max’s political drama series from Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Prods.
She is also writing Clifton for NBCU streamer, Peacock, adapting Margaret Peterson Haddix’s book, Running Out of Time. The series follows 17-year-old Jazzie Smith, born and raised in the idyllic, island village of Clifton—a sanctuary for runaway slaves and others who fled the United States at the height of the Civil War. When a mysterious stranger from the mainland washes up on shore, Jazzie learns a truth about the island’s origins that shatters everything she thought she knew to be true.
Porter Christie also recently did a rewrite of On the 1-5 for Warner Bros and the horror feature Bagman for Temple Hill and Lionsgate. Her credits include Briarpatch (Producer and Writer), Ransom (Co-Producer and Writer), Shadowhunters (Executive Story Editor and Writer), and more. Her short films have been screened at the Pan African Film Festival, Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, the Bahamas International Film Festival and the Madrid International Film Festival.
