It is fitting that the first TUGG screening take place in New Orleans, a city that the cast and crew hold dear. “We’re so excited to return to New Orleans for a screening of Created Equal,” shares the film’s producer, Thada Catalon, who is also the CEO of T-Cat Films. “Our cast and production crew filmed in various locations throughout New Orleans for two months. We all fell in love with the city for its rich history, culture, and cuisine, in addition to its beautiful churches, great architecture and very generous tax credits for film-makers. Returning there will be more like a homecoming.”

ABOUT CREATED EQUAL
Directed by famed Hollywood director and actor, Bill Duke, and based on the novel written by Roger A. Brown (Executive Producer), Created Equal brings together an all-star cast: Aaron Tveit (Les Misérables, Graceland, Grease Live), Edy Ganem (Lifetime TV’s Devious Maids), veteran actors Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba, Longmire), two time Emmy Awardwinner GregAlan Williams (OWN TV’s Greenleaf, BayWatch) and Yohance Myles (Shots Fired).
Created Equal follows the story of Thomas “Tommy” Reilly (Aaron Tveit), a cocky, up-and-coming attorney, who begrudgingly takes on a case for Sister Alejandra “Allie” Batista (Edy Ganem), who's desperate to become a priest in the Catholic Church. Against his supervisor's wishes, Tommy files suit against the Archdiocese of New Orleans for sex discrimination without justifiable cause.
As the trial unfolds, an extremist concocts a plot to stop the heresy against the church by attacking and threatening to kill Alejandra if they don't back off. Tommy’s faith and conviction are tested, and as he’s challenged to question his purpose, he begins the transformation from an egotistical, arrogant person, to one who is committed to a mission larger than his own self-interests.
