Harris recently co-wrote the script for Janicza Bravo's film Zola, which will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.

Harris' Slave Play is slated to wrap up performances at Broadway's Golden Theatre January 19. In March, London's Almeida Theatre will present Harris' play “Daddy,” a Los Angeles-set melodrama that takes place around a Bel Air swimming pool.
