Jenise Davis launched Jenise Davis Productions to bring her ideas to the screen, create opportunities for other actors, as well as to diversify her skill sets in the entertainment industry. Her motto has always been why wait for Hollywood to come knocking on your door when you can create something spectacular to take to Hollywood. And with the void of projects in the masses lacking diversity, she thought it was an opportune time to bridge the gap.

In fact, channeling her energies into all realms of the creative process has given Jenise Davis Productions a competitive edge.
