Former Executive Vice President of Tyler Perry Studios Roger Bobb, who left the company earlier this year to start his own film production company called Bobcat Films, will make what I believe will be his feature film directorial debut with a project titled Raising Izzie - a film that will premiere on the GMC (Gospel Music Channel) next July.

Bobb, who'll also produce, and whose past credits include directing several episodes of Tyler Perry TV shows, will direct from a script penned by David Martyn Conley - a script that reportedly won the GMC Faith and Family screenplay competition earlier this year, and centers on "two orphaned sisters and a teacher who takes them under wing."

Principal photography is set to begin in Atlanta next March, with a June debut at the 2012 American Black Film Festival, a month or so before its TV premiere on GMC.
