Nicki Micheaux Options the Life Story of Former Secret Service Agent to the Obamas

HOLLYWOOD, CA – Actress, Nicki Micheaux (Lincoln Heights, In the Dark, Good Trouble) has optioned the life story of former Secret Service Agent, Holli Draines.  Draines is an African American woman who started in law enforcement, then navigated her career from hometown police officer to United States Secret Service Agent.  Micheaux is developing the project and assembling her team to produce the story for television. 

Producers attached to the project are Corinne Kingsbury, (Executive Producer of In the Dark), and Fourth Wall.  Micheaux, will both star as Holli Draines and produce the project.   

“When I learned of Holli Draines, I knew that I wanted to be the one to tell her powerful story.   I have built a career on playing strong female roles.  This is a culmination of the strength, sensitivity, and wit of those characters combined with the real-life situations of a true badass female.  The opportunity to be both in front and behind the camera is exhilarating,” said Micheaux.

Draines, whose story takes her from white-collar crimes to Presidential Detail during the Obama Administration has an innate nature to protect and serve.  She became inspired during an internship at the local police department while in college, where she found her true calling during ride-alongs.  That experience led her to join the police academy, where she graduated at the top of her class and went on to join the local police force.  It was then that she decided to attend graduate school to further her education.  That is where she was recruited to join the Secret Service.  From there life went from investigations and protection in Brooklyn, to serving the Obama’s in Washington.  She is currently the owner of an elite security firm that is 100% minority owned and operated.  

Micheaux is represented by attorney Jeff Bernstein, of Jackoway Austen Tyerman Wertheimer Mandelbaum Morris Bernstein Trattner & Klein, and managers Avi Gilbert and Jon Huddle, Fourth Wall Management.
