*Tier 2 Films proudly announces the upcoming network debut of the musical-drama “Couples Therapy,” premiering globally on the BET Network on Monday, March 30, 2015, at 8:00pm (est). “Couples Therapy” is written and executive produced by Tier 2 Films own, Tangie Black Moore and Ric Atari. The film stars Syleena Johnson and directed by Tangie Black Moore.
“‘Couple’s Therapy’ was a fun project to create with a great group of talented people. As a fan of her [Syleena Johnson] ‘Couple’s Therapy’ album, I enjoyed the process of taking the album’s subject matter and creating an entire new world with relatable characters, situations and storylines. Seeing the process from its script conception to premiering on the BET Networks is truly gratifying,” adds Tangie Black Moore (Director/Executive Producer).
“Couple’s Therapy” is inspired by Grammy Nominated Recording Artist Syleena Johnson’s album, “Chapter 6: Couple’s Therapy“ (Blackbyrd Music/EOne). “This was one of the most challenging, but most rewarding projects I’ve done. Being able to paint a vivid picture through my music is a gift from God and I can’t thank God enough for the opportunity,” says Syleena Johnson (Principal Actress, Producer).
“Couples Therapy” is a musical + film fusion of modern day romantic drama. The film documents a couple’s rollercoaster-ride through heaven and hell as they fight to save a damaged marriage.
“Tier 2 Films is pleased to partner with BET to present the “Couples Therapy” film. For me, being a part of the creative process on both sides (Producer, “I Cut My Hair” on the “Couples Therapy” album, Writer/Executive Producer, “Couples Therapy” film) in a time where both the music & film industries are changing is exciting. The arts are merging more & more, and Couples Therapy is an example of just how cool it can be when the worlds collide,” mentions Ric Atari (Writer, Executive Producer).
