Tracee Ellis Ross will star along with Dakota Johnson in the upcoming comedy Covers.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie is “set among the talent, fame and fast-paced world of Hollywood’s music scene.” It was written by Flora Geeson and will be helmed by Nisha Ganatra, the director behind Late Night, which stars Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling and releases next month.

Ross has become known for her roles on television series including ABC’s black-ish and the Mara Brock Akil-created Girlfriends, which ran for eight seasons beginning in September 2000.

The actress had minor film roles in comedies including Little (2019) and Labor Pains (2009), and had a sizeable role in Tyler Perry’s Daddy’s Little Girls in 2007.
