Six years ago, a grandma by the name of Wanda Dench in Arizona mistakenly invited Jamal Hinton to her Thanksgiving dinner. And what started as an accidental text message has turned into a friendship and a heartwarming holiday tradition.
Now, Netflix is turning their story into a film.
Hinton l shared the news on Twitter by saying: "I am very excited to announce our new partnership with Netflix. We thank every single one of you for your love and support in our journey the last 6 years. We can’t wait to tell our story on the big screen!"
Dench also shared excitement for the upcoming film.
“We are excited to share our story with the world. We hope it inspires more people to reach out and make connections that they wouldn’t ordinarily make,” she said. “We are so blessed to find a genuine friendship brought together by God from a mistaken text message.”
