Dexter Tucker presents the untold tory of Andre Rison

Executive producer of the recently released Wide Open: The Andre Rison Story, which is currently accessible on Tubi TV, Apple TV, and Prime TV, Dexter Tucker said, "I got with Dre and interviewed him." "I got the budget at last. That was when I had made a number of pictures. We three finished it. We are in discussions for international distribution and have a significant distribution network.

In addition to serving as an executive producer for motion pictures, Dexter Tucker, like his brother Chris Tucker ("Rush Hour"), is a comedian.

Indeed, our family was joyful. When I asked about growing up with the comedian/actor, Dexter revealed that they had six siblings—four boys and two girls, with Chris being the younger. "I was in the trucking business, and I wanted to open at comedy shows after Chris did it (the Rush Hour success)."

Tucker claimed that one night, while they were at a comedy club, Lester Bibbs urged him to try his hand at performing on stage. Dexter has been entertaining crowds on comedy clubs' stages for more than 20 years since that time.

"When I first began performing humor...My dream job has always been a filmmaker. In our conversation, he added, "I felt like I had to watch certain movies. "There aren't enough movies like the ones I want to see, so I wanted to make them."

One film that inspired Tucker to make was Wide Open: The Andre Rison Story. The autobiography of Super Bowl XXXI champion and five-time Pro Bowl player Andre Rison. Jerry D. May is the director, and Rison, May, Tucker, Derrick Handspike, and Lucious Robinson wrote the screenplay.

Jermel Howard as Andre Rison, Kim Lovette as Andre's mother, Towanda Braxton as a principal, Brely Evans as a psychologist, Porsha Hall as a model, Trina Braxton as a show host, Tamika Scott as a Nike executive, Ashanti Harris as Chilli (TLC), Tetisheri Moniz as T Boz, Mahogany Raspberry as Wanda Lopez, Paris Bennett as a radio personality, and even Dexter himself as Mr. Otis, Stan B. Lackey as Ronald Lopes, Roy Coulter as a head coach, Ferquan Peacock as Tupac, Mickey “MempHiTz” Wright, Jr., and Marshall Hood as LA Reid are among the project's impressive cast of up-and-coming blockbuster actors.

It combines elements of a love story, football, and comedic relief.a historical drama featuring 90s hip-hop culture and music. It's about his relationship with Left Eye (Lisa Lopes) of TLC, his life story as an NFL player, and his friendship with Deion (Sanders)," Tucker continued. "This is his side of the entire narrative."
