NATURI NAUGHTON AND TANYELL QUIAN SET TO STAR IN "ABDUCTED AT AN HBCU: A BLACK GIRL MISSING MOVIE," LIFETIME'S SECOND OF THREE BLACK GIRL MISSING MOVIES EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY GARCELLE BEAUVAIS

LOS ANGELES, CA (MAY 22, 2024) - Following last year's critically acclaimed Black Girl Missing movie executive produced and starring Garcelle Beauvais, Naturi Naughton (Queens, Power) and Tanyell Quian (Queen Sugar, Lace) will headline the upcoming Black Girl Missing movie. Abducted at an HBCU: A Black Girl Missing Movie will premiere on television July 20 on Lifetime and serves to highlight the growing epidemic of missing Black women and girls particularly those who come from disadvantaged communities.

Abducted at an HBCU: A Black Girl Missing Movie follows the story of Shannon (Tanyell Quian), an ambitious college student who is struggling to pay her college tuition and eventually stops attending classes. The only person who notices Shannon's sudden disappearance is her college counselor Ellen (Naturi Naughton). Ellen's concerns are dismissed by Shannon's professors, campus administration, students and even her own boyfriend. Instead of answers, Ellen is met with careless comments about how "girls like that" from underserved communities often drop out of school. Determined to find Shannon, Ellen inadvertently uncovers a trafficking ring targeting students in need like Shannon. With time running out, Ellen must fight tirelessly to gain the support she needs to rescue Shannon and bring down the trafficking ring.

Naturi Naughton most notably starred in the Starz Network's #1 hit series Power, executive produced by 50 Cent. She is a two-time recipient of the 2017 and 2018 NAACP "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series" award for her work on Power. Naughton has reprised her role in various Power spin-offs.

Other film credits include 88, Notorious, Fame and Lottery Ticket Mad Men, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Playboy Club and The Client List. Naughton also appeared on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning musical Hairspray.

She has also graced the big screen with roles opposite award- winning actors like Octavia Spencer in the Blum House feature MA, Cuba Gooding Jr in Bayou Caviar, Lin Shaye in Gothic Harvest and Ethan Hawke, Wyatt Russel, Sam Rockwell, Kris Kristofferson and many more in Blaze. Quian can currently be seen in a recurring role in the AMC series The Driver/Parish opposite Giancarlo Esposito.

Named one of People Magazine's highly coveted 50 Most Beautiful, Haitian-born award-winning actress and executive producer Garcelle Beauvais has charmed audiences of varied backgrounds for years. Using her dramatic and comedic abilities, she has been seen in TV series and films such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Jamie Foxx Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Coming to America (1&2), White House Down and co-hosted on the multi-award-winning talk show Fox's The Real.   Continuing to cement her status as a media queen, she launched her production company Garcelle Productions, released a memoir titled Love Me as I Am (Harper Collins) and proudly became the first Black cast member on Bravo's hit series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Abducted at an HBCU: A Black Girl Missing Movie is produced for Lifetime by Johnson Production Group in association with Motion Content Group. Garcelle Beauvais, Tim Johnson, Stacy Mandelberg, Gordon Gilbertson, Jason Egenberg, Richard Foster and Chet Fenster are executive producers.
