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.
