Actress LisaRaye McCoy-Misick has expanded her resume by directing her first feature film.

The Players Club star stepped behind the camera to develop Skinned alongside Morehouse College professor Avery O. Williams.

The film centres on a young African American woman, played by actress Jasmine Burke, who bleaches her skin to attract men.

MCCoy also stars in the movie as Burke's onscreen mother.

Skinned is slated for release later this year (14).
