New York, NY (December 10, 2014) - Regina Hall (Think Like a Man Too) and Grammy(R) Award winners Jill Scott (Get On Up, Steel Magnolias) and Eve Jeffers Cooper (Whip It, Barbershop) star as three single friends who vow to get married within a year after attending their best friend's wedding in the Lifetime Original Movie With This Ring (#WithThisRing). Premiering Saturday, January 24, 2015, at 8pm ET/PT, the romantic comedy based on the best seller The Vow by Denene Millner, Angela Burt-Murray and Mitzi Miller also stars Brooklyn Sudano (My Wife and Kids), NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders (Deion's Family Playbook), Stephen Bishop (Being Mary Jane), Jason George (Grey's Anatomy) and Brian White (The Night Before).
After attending their friend Elise's (Sudano) wedding to Nate (Bishop) on New Year's Eve, Trista (Hall), a career-driven talent agent, Viviane (Scott), a successful gossip columnist, and Amaya (Cooper), a struggling actress, make a pact to get married within the year to either a new love or a man waiting in the wings. But the close friends face their own set of challenges - Trista has not gotten over her commitment-phobic ex-boyfriend Damon (White), Viviane is secretly in love with Sean (George), the father of her son, and Amaya is desperate to break up her boyfriend Keith's (Sanders) unhappy marriage so they can live happily ever after. Each woman starts the year with high hopes and dreams of what will happen over the next 12 months... but will they all make it to the altar?
