I am Jean Elie. 

You may know me as Ahmal Dee on HBO’s “Insecure”, playing Issa Rae’s petty younger brother, or from earlier work on shows like American Crime and The Eric Andre show. Or you may have heard me but didn’t know it was me on Alvinnn and the Chipmunks. If none of those ring a bell…Hi!

In 2010, I left Brockton, Massachusetts to live out my dream in Los Angeles. I landed in a little town called Van Nuys and moved into a mustard yellow house with 5 people from all over the world. We all came to L.A. with a dollar and a dream. This home was on Bassett St. It was a hub for an array of people who were developing their careers here in Los Angeles. One of my roommates created her own talent agency, another is a celebrity hairstylist, and one even became a regular on Tyler Perry’s show, Love Thy Neighbor. It was a revolving door. A cast of characters. A house for a family of creatives. This home is apart of our story, it roots us here in L.A., and since then we’ve all branched out and found success in our own lane. 

Bassett House Pictures was named in the spirit of this experience. It’s an invitation to keep creating with others from all walks of life, to share each other’s stories, and to continue to support others.
