Teyonah Parris (“Survivor’s Remorse,” “Chiraq”) stars in TV One’s first Unsung feature film, “Love Under New Management” — the amazing story of R&B singer Miki Howard.
Before becoming a Grammy Award-nominated singer, Howard was a homeless teenager who was forced to fend for herself to a struggling singer desperate for love, attention and success to a beloved chart-topping, award-winning R&B princess whose voice was undeniably one of the best in the business.
But Miki’s story is not just the story of a girl’s rise to stardom. It’s the story of perseverance in the face of adversity and the will to overcome poor choices, poor relationships and poor self-esteem. It’s a story that teaches us that self-love is indeed the greatest love of all.
Co-starring Darius McCrary (“Family Matters,” “The Leftovers”) as Gerald Levert, Gary Dourdan (“A Different World,” “C.S.I.”), LisaRaye (“Single Ladies”) and Vanessa Bell Calloway (“Shameless”), “Love Under New Management” premieres June 12 8/7c only on TV One.
