InterGrace Productions was founded in 2020 by a group of like-minded,
socially conscious, and spiritual entrepreneurs led by Dr. Tyrha Lindsey-Warren, Dr. Alfred “Bisi” Tofade, David Jituboh, and Reverend Jeffrey Wright. All joined together with a commitment to produce empowering and family-friendly entertainment, and more, with social relevance.

In addition, InterGrace Productions leverages the power of storytelling to proactively impact our society.
