Dakota Johnson is set to star in — and executive produce — Rodeo Queens, a mockumentary in development at Amazon Studios. The TV series landed at Amazon and is described as a mockumentary that follows an ensemble of Rodeo Queen hopefuls as they compete for the desired crown.
Christy Hall (I Am Not Okay With This) created the series and will serve as showrunner and produce alongside Johnson, Carrie Brownstein, Ro Donnelly and Elisa Ellis.
This is the second TV series role of Dakota Johnson. She previously starred in Fox’s short-lived comedy series Ben and Kate, alongside Nat Faxon. Grey’s Anastasia has starred in such features as The Peanut Butter Falcon, Bad Times at the El Royale, The Social Network and the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise.
Dakota Johnson is also one the celebrities spoken out throughout this hard time of America due to the national protests. She posted a quote of Nelson Mandela on Instagram and wrote, “It is mind bending, horrifying and completely unacceptable that any human being fear for their life or lose their life because of the color of their skin. Enough is enough.”

Join me in donating to the links above. Let’s wake up and stay awake to the reality of this world, and the insidious disease of racism in our culture and corrupt government. Let’s raise awareness Let’s take peaceful action. Let’s VOTE corrupt politicians out of office. Let’s educate ourselves and educate our children. Beyond this week or this year or this lifetime, forever and forever instill knowledge, compassion, equality, and oneness. Nurture and illuminate the hearts around you towards a more wise and morally evolved humanity. Below are a list of great reads on the subject of racism that have been very edifying and helpful to me. 1. White Fragility: Why it’s so hard for white people to talk about Racism by Robin DiAngelo 2. Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo- Lodge 3. The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Malcolm X 4. The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin 5. The Source of Self-Regard by Toni Morrison
Let’s wait for her upcoming project in the future and wish her all the best.
