JRF is a studio that creates and produces socially conscious mainstream movies and TV, generating funds and increased awareness for their causes. JRF’s mission is to build community by empowering audiences to move from apathy to action and become heroes in their own backyards.
Roberts is the Executive Producer of “White Rabbit,” a feature film about a high school shooter in the making and the devastating effects of teen bullying, access to guns, parental neglect and mental illness. Jordan hosted “White Rabbit” release party fundraiser screenings across the U.S., benefiting Variety the Children’s Charity and anti-bullying charities. Its cast includes: Sam Trammell, Britt Robertson, Nick Krause and Ryan Lee.
Roberts is no stranger to crafting big philanthropic initiatives, spending several years as Keith Ferrazzi’s producer, helping run his 501(c)(3). During their collaboration, Roberts and Ferrazzi teamed up with their partner Peter Guber, Arianna Huffington and Lisa Oz to help the Fortune 100 C-Suite create joint initiatives with non-profits to increase literacy, health and wellness, education and social responsibility.
JRF is a hub for content, with an entire slate of film and TV projects in various stages. Roberts is the series creator of “In Our Own Backyards,” a hybrid TV/digital series that promises to deliver the greatest dilemma of all-time to a TV audience. This seven-night event will create community in America, inspiring its viewers to become heroes in their own backyards. Funded by brands, “In Our Own Backyards” is an audacious roadmap to community.”
Roberts has joined the cast of the dark comedy thriller, “Relevant,” a hybrid feature film/TV series she created, where she will portray a blackballed journalist fighting to get the story of a lifetime, while being held captive by a serial killer, as they battle their mutual attraction.
Roberts is in post-production on her directorial debut of the documentary feature, “A Matter of Opinion: Marriage Equality.” She’s currently filming its follow-up, “A Matter of Opinion: My Family Voted for Trump,” which examines a polarized America over the gridlock of Donald Trump’s controversial presidency.
Jordan Roberts studied at The Meisner Carville School of Acting, The Strasberg Institute, The Groundings, UBC and The Lembeck Comedy Workshop. She also studied Journalism, Film and TV writing at UCLA. Roberts has served multiple terms on Women In Film’s Board of Directors as Advocacy Chair and Newsletter Editor, and IFP (now Film Independent) as Newsletter Editor and Membership Chair.
JRF’s “sweet spot” is collaborating on projects that speak truth to power, empower women, give voice to the voiceless and celebrate the human condition.
