Silver Spring, MD — A heartwarming new release just in time for the upcoming holiday, UMC – Urban Movie Channel, the go-to streaming service for the best in Black film and television, is excited to present the exclusive premiere of NOTHING LIKE THANKSGIVING on Thursday, November 22, 2018. A new family dramedy from director Mark Harris (Black Coffee, No Regrets), the film stars William L. Johnson (Blue Hill Avenue), Tiffany Addison (Chicago Med), Darrin Henson (Stomp the Yard), Dawn Halfkenny (Saints and Sinners) and Richard Gallion (The Ideal Husband). Addison also serves as the writer and producer of the project.
In Nothing Like Thanksgiving, Clayton Rockwell (William L. Johnson) is a successful, self-made businessman. Suddenly diagnosed with a terminal illness, he masterminds a plan to recruit someone he can groom to replace him upon his passing. But when his replacement seems to be working out a little too well, Clayton realizes he must decide what’s truly important – preparing a long-term replacement or cherishing the short time he has left with the ones who matter most.
“Media, entertainment, and other forms of popular culture play a significant role in shaping society’s perception of different people,” says Nothing Like Thanksgiving writer/producer, Tiffany Addison. “With this film, our aim is to contribute to the existence of positive content and positive images of African American culture. Nothing Like Thanksgiving is a family-based film about a well to do Black family who struggles with loving and truly connecting with each other. It will make you laugh, cry, smile, and scream. We are excited to see our vision for this film come to life on UMC.”
Nothing Like Thanksgiving is produced by Road2Freedom Productions in association with 1555 Filmworks.
