Film Life Announces Acquisition of Award-Winning Film TRACI TOWNSEND to be Released on the 'American Black Film Festival DVD Series' Label in Association With Warner Home Video

May 23, 2007, 01:00 ET from Film Life, Inc.

    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.
