Cody Jarrett is an American feature filmmaker. Initially a musician living in Tampa Bay, Florida, his Hollywood career started with being cast by director Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger) and producer Joel Silver (The Matrix) in a supporting role in 1990's Andrew Dice Clay film The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (20th Century-Fox). Following the film's release, Jarrett played music in Los Angeles, both as a solo artist and in various bands while working as a crew member on other films, making short films, and acting in commercials.
Cody's first feature, Frog-g-g! was released in 2004 on Koch Entertainment. The film won Grand Jury Prize/Best Feature at the 2004 New York Film And Video Festival and was chosen a "Top 25 of 2005" DVD at Mr. Skin. However, the film is known for a series of publicity stunts. Following FROG-G-G!'s release, Jarrett directed television commercials, music videos, and a sports documentary for female MMA star Miesha "Takedown" Tate.
Cody's second feature was the 1970s-influenced women-in-prison film Sugar Boxx, released by Lightning Entertainment, Showtime Networks, and Entertainment One. The film features notable cameos by "Foxy Brown" writer/director Jack Hill and Russ Meyer star Tura Satana. The film received critical and audience accolades.
Currently Cody is in pre-production on Tura!, a documentary chronicling the life of actor/burlesque dancer Tura Satana, best known for her role in 1965's Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. Release is scheduled for 2014.
