Inspired by award-winning author and media personality Demetria Lucas book of the same name, Don’t Waste Your Pretty Is premiering on TV One Sunday, Feb. 28th and I can’t wait.
Starring Deborah Joy Winans and Keri Hilson, the TV One original film tells the story of extreme career focus, Mykah (Hilson) who finally stops making excuses and starts looking for love. Encouraged by her best friends, Mykah embraces the dating scene by taking their suggestions on speed dating, making online connections, and hitting the nightlife. But she soon discovers love might be right in front of her. The recent divorcée Jeanné (Winans) has put the idea of love on ice but has to decide if the burning flame from Mykah’s twin brother Michael (Redaric Williams) is warm enough to melt her heart again. Fun-loving, married couple Amma (Kaye Singleton) and Aisha (Jasmine Burke) are #couplegoals of the group but struggle to strike a balance as they embark on their parenthood journey. When jobs, romance, and family interactions prove more complicated than they had ever anticipated, the group of friends knows they can always turn to one another to figure out their next move.
