Taraji P. Henson is always coming through with a project to lift our spirits, and she has not abandoned us amid the nationwide shutdown as the Netflix has just unveiled the feel-good trailer for Coffee & Kareem.
Below is the movie synopsis:
While police officer James Coffee (Ed Helms) enjoys his new relationship with Vanessa Manning (Taraji P. Henson), her beloved 12-year-old son Kareem (Terrence Little Gardenhigh) plots their break-up. Kareem tries to scare away his mother’s boyfriend and hires criminal fugitives to take him out but accidentally exposes a secret network of illegal activity, putting the lives of his family at risk. To protect Vanessa, Kareem teams up with Coffee — the partner he never wanted — for a dangerous chase across Detroit.
Betty Gilpin, RonReaco Lee, Andrew Bachelor and David Alan Grier also star in the movie.
In other news, Henson recently announced the launch of her new haircare line, TPH by Taraji.
She spoke with Essence about the line and why we should all be using her products.
“Often you have so many products and you just don’t know how to use them. But because I formulated these myself, I can tell you exactly what to do, how to use them, when to use them and what I do for my hair, because that’s what I was finding—people started taking to my hair,” she shared.
“When I would take the weaves out and show my hair, they were like, “Oh, my God. How did you do it? How did you do it?” It would have been so hard for me to try to explain. I went on vacation with girlfriends and they had protective styles and were complaining about their scalps itching. I said, “Try this.” I put the apparatus all together. They were like, “Oh, my God. I’ve never felt this.” I was like, “I’m onto something.”
Coffee & Kareem airs on Netflix on April 3.
