CAA has signed writer-director Stella Meghie for representation in all areas.

Meghie’s first feature Jean Of The Joneses premiered in March in the Narrative Spotlight section at SXSW. Inspired by Meghie’s own family life, though not strictly autobiographical, the film centers on a family, one of whom dies at the start of the movie. The paramedic who answers the 911 call falls for rambunctious Jean, but the courtship goes south during a calamitous funeral. Meghie also is developing a pilot at Warner Bros. with John Wells Productions.

Meghie continues to be managed by Adesuwa McCalla at MetaMorphic Entertainment and attorney Gordon Bobb.
