TV ONE ANNOUNCES PREMIERE OF LISARAYE MCCOY DIRECTORIAL DEBUT FILM, “SKINNED,” ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 2016 AT 8 P.M. ET

Network Acquisition to Address the Global Epidemic of Skin Lightening

SILVER SPRING, MD – DEC. 28, 2015 – TV One, the network dedicated to delivering real life and entertainment programming from the African American point of view, announces the acquisition of actress LisaRaye McCoy’s (Single Ladies) directorial debut film, SKINNED. The 90-minute film, which addresses the global epidemic of skin lightening and touches upon the important issues of color, self-esteem and acceptance, will make its U.S. television debut on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016 at 8 p.m. ET.

“We set out to produce a film not only to address the global epidemic, but more importantly, the history among people of color regarding the way we think and the acceptance of our given gifts,” said McCoy. “SKINNED will impact those who are struggling with their own identity and self-worth. There hasn’t been a film to address this epidemic since Spike Lee’s School Daze touched on the subject matter.”

A 2015 Bronze Lens Film Festival best independent feature film nominee, SKINNED is a character-driven drama about Jolie, a young lady played by Jasmine Burke (Ride Along), whose insecurities about her skin color and beauty, and her search for romance causes her to bleach her skin beyond recognition.In an attempt to capture the heart of the perfect suitor, her misuse of skin bleaching products is detrimental.

As a beautiful model with a wonderful husband, Michael, played by Brad James (Prisoners), Jolie (Burke) discovers she’s developed some complications due to the chemicals found in certain skin bleaching creams. To make matters worse, her husband discovers her damaging little secret. With the assistance of psychiatrist Dr. Smith (Cycerli, Ash, Never Alone), Jolie (Burke) must go on a journey into her past to face her demons in an effort to sustain her future.

Additional SKINNED cast members include: LisaRaye McCoy (Single Ladies)as Mother, Drew Sidora (Step Up, Hindsight) as Clarice, Jolie’s sister, Tasia Grant (Morningside) as Melissa, and Nollywood international film and television star Van Vicker (The Heartbreaker’s Revenge) as Bobby.

SKINNED was co-directed by LisaRaye McCoy and Avery O. Williams, and was executive produced by CEO Sharon Tomlinson of Studio 11 Films; CEO Dr. Clarice Kulah of Divine Entertainment Intl., and CEO Lotten B. Yeaney of Lot10 Productions in collaboration with Sky+Orange Productions. Robyn Greene Arrington serves as vice president of original programming and D’Angela Proctor is head of original programming for TV One.
