See Michelle as Gwen in Between Us Productions "The Fairer Sex" written by Sander Gusinow and directed by Samantha Lee Manas.

In The Fairer Sex the battle of the sexes has become an all-out war. The women of the world, fed up with subjugation and sexual violence, have cast off the chains of oppression and staged a global revolution. But all is not well in the New World Order, as the brutal pro-male insurgency has swelled under the grip of a terrifying new leader. A brash dark comedy about passion, vengeance, and sexual politics, The Fairer Sex is certain to shock, inflame, and delight with visceral glee. For mature audiences only. 

 

Michelle appeared as Dr. Glover in Episode #13 of Allegiance which aired on NBC last season.  Click on the media page above to see the clip!
