Kali 8 Productions/Kali Films, the production company behind the critically acclaimed documentary Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth and directed by UK raised, Kenyan born director Pratibha Parmar, have joined forces with Dexter Davis' D Street Pictures to co-produce the romantic comedy G.P.S….I Love You written my Ellen Gavin.

G.P.S…I love you is set to start production in Los Angeles in early 2015. It tells the story of Liberty Sanchez, an Irish/Latin American radio traffic reporter who sees her job as dead-end until she meets a charming, successful and socially conscious British entrepreneur who motivates her to do more, whilst having to deal with an overbearing boss and a friend who may or may not have her best interest at heart.

“We are thrilled to be working with Dexter Davis who fell in love with the screenplay immediately, matching our own enthusiasm. I am excited about directing GPS…I Love You, a cinematic love song to the city of Angels,” said director Parmar about the collaboration. 

Dexter Davis will also serve as Executive Producer, and he had this to add: “D Street is fortunate to have acquired US theatrical rights for Pratibha‟s beautiful documentary on the life, times and contributions of one of America‟s most beloved literary giants, Ms. Alice Walker. To have the opportunity to co-produce Pratibha‟s next film, "G.P.S…I love You‟ which is a hilarious and quite relevant romcom is icing on the Cake. We couldn‟t be more thrilled.”
