NEW YORK, May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Film Life Pictures has acquired the home video rights to the award-winning romantic comedy feature film TRACI TOWNSEND. The film, an Official Selection of the 2006 American Black Film Festival (ABFF), is slated for release on July 17, 2007. Film Life has partnered with Warner Home Video to distribute high-quality urban films for home entertainment under its ABFF DVD Series label. TRACI TOWNSEND stars Jazsmin Lewis, Mari Marrow, Victor Williams and Richard T. Jones. The film tells the story of Traci (Jazsmin Lewis), a sexy thirtysomething advice columnist who has had her share of good men. But as luck would have it, she's still single and wants to know why. So Traci enlists the help of her level-headed best friend Sylvia (Mari Marrow), and together they trip down memory lane. Armed with a mic and camera, they interview Traci's former lovers -- Darrell, Pierre and Dante -- to find out why they never proposed. Each encounter comically teaches Traci more about herself than she would care to know, causing her to re-evaluate the meaning of love, life and, ultimately, happiness. Said Jeff Friday, Founder/CEO of Film Life, "Film Life is thrilled to have acquired TRACI TOWNSEND. The film is a definite crowd pleaser, and played to packed houses during our 2006 American Black Film Festival. Beyond its high entertainment factor, it is also socially relevant." According to the Census Bureau's latest American Community Survey, marriage rates among Black women remain low. Only about 30 percent of Black women are living with a spouse.
