*SILVER SPRING, MD. –– Definitely Divorcing, a comedy movie following the lives of co-workers who are all questioning their marriages, particularly whether or not to divorce, makes its world premiere on TV One this Saturday, Feb. 20 at 8 p.m. ET.
Faced with a variety of issues, including anger management, a child-like spouse, and manipulative children, Robin Givens (The Perfect Match, Fear Files), Columbus Short (Scandal), Malika Haqq (ATL, Keeping Up With The Kardashians) and Golden Brooks (Hollywood Divas, Girlfriends) lead the rom-com’s ensemble cast.
“TV One’s world premiere of the romantic comedy Definitely Divorcing is sure to bring our viewers loads of laughs as it is a humorous look at the real issues many marriages face today,” said D’Angela Proctor, TV One’s SVP of Original Programming & Production. “During a month when televisions and newsfeeds are dominated by fairy tales and unrealistic images of love, the movie will offer a real perspective, as well as comic relief.”
In Definitely Divorcing, Shayla (Haqq) and Eric (Short) question whether their marriage can survive after a series of let downs and irreconcilibe differences. The couple’s good friends Monica (Givens) and Aaron (E. Roger Mitchell, The Equalizer, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) seem to have the perfect marriage, however, things are not always as they seem. Monica and Aaron’s clinical psychologist, Dr. Tonisha Stevens (Brooks), is no angel herself. While counseling the couple, she is going through her third divorce due to her own anger management issues. With 60% of marriages ending in divorce, which of these couples will choose to stick it out and which ones are definitely divorcing?
The cast of characters also includes Valerie, a sexy, flirty and inappropriately dressed doctor’s wife played by Lisa Wu (Hollywood Divas, The Real Housewives of Atlanta); Brian (Gary Owen, Ride Along, Think Like A Man), Eric’s best friend who is looking for love while battling his ex-wife; and Eunice, college friend of Dr. Stevens and a depressed dentist portrayed by Luenell (Hotel Transylvania, Californication), who self-medicates to get over her blues.
