When and where did production take place?

On the YouTube channel, The Haves and the Have Nots Review released a video on the 31st of December 2018 with info from the film.

A picture is seen in the video that contains a revised table draft for the upcoming Original. It can be assumed that the film didn’t begin principal photography until 2019.

Tyler Perry has his own studio, Tyler Perry Studio’s, which carried out the production of A Fall From Grace, therefore, it can be safely assumed a lot of production would have been carried out there.

Has Netflix released a trailer for Tyler Perry’s A Fall From Grace?

At the time of writing Netflix has yet to release a teaser or trailer for Tyler Perry’s A Fall From Grace.

We can expect to see a trailer drop soon.

Will any further Tyler Perry titles come to Netflix?

Perry is busy at work on multiple projects outside of Netflix, in a mega deal with Viacom, he will be producing new kids and family live-action series starring 10-year-old rapper, Young Dylan. The deal with Viacom includes producing further original series for BET and Viacom networks, with the latter having exclusive licensing rights on his programming.

From the above, it appears that Viacom and BET have exclusive access to any television series Perry creates. If films are not apart of the mega-deal, then we could expect to see more Originals in the future.
