TV One’s final installment of the network’s chilling slate of LOVE, LIES AND MURDER movies wraps with the gripping and highly anticipated film, DEADLY DISPATCH. The film premieres on Sunday, July 28 at 8 p.m. ET/7C, followed by an encore presentation at 10 p.m. This film concludes TV One’s month-long airings of movies inspired by true crime events.
DEADLY DISPATCH stars Tamala Jones (Castle), DomiNque Perry (Insecure) and Rapper Bone Crusher (ATL). The film chronicles the tragic murder of Shawn (Bone Crusher), a well-liked owner of a struggling taxi company. Tiffany (Jones) is a local salon owner and Shawn’s longtime, high-school best friend who becomes intertwined in the puzzling circumstances surrounding his death. Unsatisfied with the police’s classification of the case being a “robbery gone wrong,” Tiffany becomes suspicious of Shawn’s grieving widow Amber (Perry). Motivated to find out what really happened to her friend that fateful day, Tiffany embarks on a quest that will not only endanger her strained marriage, but her life as well. Will she be able to come to terms with a deep secret shared between her and Shawn while seeking justice?
“Narcissism and the lack of empathy has changed the mentality and perspective of modern society,” said film star Bone Crusher. “This role meant so much to me. I hope this movie can enlighten others to see what narcissism looks like, and how to help prevent this from happening to anyone else.”
DEADLY DISPATCH is written by Sadé Sellers and directed by Morenike Joela, with casting provided by Leah Daniels Butler and George Pierre as casting director. Swirl Films produced the film for TV One, with Eric Tomosunas serving as executive producer and James Seppelfrick, Darien Baldwin and Keith Neal as producers. For TV One, Jason Ryan is the Executive Producer in Charge-of-Production, Donyell McCullough is Senior Director of Talent & Casting, and Brigitte McCray is Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Production.
