Expanding his resume, Jefferies is going behind the camera and producing his own show, called South Brooklyn.
Aside from film and television, Jefferies started his own acting academy to mentor and help coach students to refine their craft. Jefferies is loaded with insightful tips and advice from his personal experiences as well received advice from mentors Denzel Washington, Bill Cosby and others. Despite a demanding schedule, giving back to his community is a must. He frequently speaks to at-risk youth. Motivating his audiences with his story of hope, tolerance and action, Jefferies encourages them to become the fire that ignites change.
