About Me

Welcome to the Roetta Group Production, est. 2019

Welcome to the Roetta Group Production, est. 2019

Hello, my name is Roetta-Lee Smith and I started acting  in theater in Detroit, Michigan 'back in the day.'  I suppose my  professional career officially began in 1996 (when I joined my 1st union)  I have appeared on stage, TV, the big screen and new media.   Fast forward to the 21st Century, and here I am  writing and producing my own work & collaborating with other talented professionals and friends. I wrote, produced and starred in my first web series, Everything's Coming Up Ro'ses and in January 2020, the Roetta Group wrapped my newest comedy short COUPLES THERAPY - Coming Soon to a Film Festival near you.
