From Yard is based on the autobiographical novel Yardie by David G. Heron and is described as an immigrant urban drama that follows the life of the author from his childhood days growing up in Jamaica through his often turbulent young adulthood in New York City, as he struggles to find his own path amidst personal and professional challenges and tragedy. The series is produced by Leland and Phaedra Benford through Cupcake Rapture Studios in Atlanta, with Heron serving as Executive Producer. Benford directs from a script written by Heron, Noel E. Dunn and Maya Hall, adapted from Heron’s novel.
