TV ONE BRINGS LOVE, LUST AND LIES WITH JUNE PREMIERES "THE SUMMONING" AND "WILL TO LOVE"

Directors Charles Murray and Chris Stokes at the Helm; New Movies Featuring Notable Talent Paula Jai Parker, Terrell Tilford, Darius McCrary, Marques Houston, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Shondrella Avery, Draya Michele and More

SILVER SPRING, MD. - MAY 13, 2015 - Continuing its commitment to long-form storytelling, TV One is kicking off summer with two new movies premiering in June. The first premiering Saturday, June 6 at 8 p.m. ET is THE SUMMONING, a TV One original movie and thriller directed by Charles Murray (Sons of Anarchy) about a remarried widow (Paula Jai Parker, True Blood, Friday) who summons her first husband (Terrell Tilford, Switched at Birth) from the dead. And debuting Saturday, June 27 at 8 p.m. E.T. is the world premiere of You Got Served director Chris Stokes' WILL TO LOVE, a romantic comedy about a workaholic bachelor (Marques Houston, Sister, Sister) who must find a wife in 90 days in order to inherit his grandfather's fortune.

"During a month traditionally known for wedding bells, we bring two very different takes on love," said D'Angela Proctor, TV One's SVP Original Programming and Production. "From learning how to let go and move on, to embracing true love without hesitation, our June movies illustrate the best, the worst, the humor, and ultimately the power of love."

In THE SUMMONING, Parker plays Angela Simmons-Alexander, a young woman who complicates her life by resurrecting her late husband TJ Simmons (Tilford). Though her new husband Wayne Alexander (Dorian Missick, Lucky Number Slevin) is everything she could hope for, the passion in her marriage is lukewarm at best. Given an artifact - a spiritual medallion said to awaken the deceased - by a dead friend's brother, Drew Studdard (Darius McCrary, Family Matters, Committed), Angela cannot resist temptation and invokes the magic of the mysterious gift. The reunion with her past love is emotional but turns deadly very quickly as his spirit begins to strengthen and make life-threatening demands, including turning Kendra (Storm Reid, Twelve Years A Slave), one of their young daughters, against Wayne. With the help of Kiki (Diandra Lyle, Urban Love Story), a homeless woman Angela hired to run her bar's kitchen, they plot to send TJ back to the grave.

The second movie, a TV One world premiere, WILL TO LOVE, features Houston as Jamal Hawkins, a 30-something CEO and heir of the "Let It Roll" toilet paper company, who must find a wife before his grandfather passes away. As a quintessential bachelor, Jamal has no idea how to accomplish such a feat and must do so despite his half-sister Monica's (Shondrella Avery, Napoleon Dynamite) meddling. He enlists the help of his secretary, Rachel (Keshia Knight Pulliam, The Cosby Show) and his best friend Danny (Black Thomas, Step Up 2 The Streets, Stomp The Yard) to find a bride who will obtain his family's approval and win him his birthright. After devising a plan to audition potential brides and finding Candice (Draya Michele, Basketball Wives LA), Jamal develops feelings for Rachel and must make the crucial decision between following the money or his heart. The stellar cast also includes Valarie Pettiford (The Blacklist) and Gary Sturgis (Diary of A Mad Black Woman).

THE SUMMONING is directed by Charles Murray and produced for TV One by Parkside Pictures with Danny Roth and Damiano Tucci as producers. Craig Henry serves as executive in charge of production and D'Angela Proctor as executive producer for the network.

WILL TO LOVE is produced for TV One by Footage Films, LLC. Chris Stokes serves as director and producer, and Christopher Owen and Jerome Jones are also producers. Jubba Seyyid serves as executive in charge of production and D'Angela Proctor as executive producer for the network.
