Synopsis

A Fool and His Money
A struggling family wins $1 million in a radio contest, but finds their windfall more a curse than a blessing when friends, neighbors, and even a sketchy "long lost" uncle (Eddie Griffin) show up seeking a slice of the pie. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Suddenly Single
This filmed stage play from NAACP award-winning playwright David E. Talbert stars Garcelle Beauvais as Samantha Stone, a wife and mother who seems to have everything one could want: beauty, intelligence, children who love her, and a satisfying marriage to her high school sweetheart, Sylvester (Isaiah Washington). Tragedy strikes, however, when Sylvester announces that he's leaving Samantha for another woman - on the day of a big move into the new family home. This forces Samantha to suddenly reevaluate her life, work through grief, and ultimately attempt a fresh start. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

What Goes Around Comes Around
Philandering womanizer Tyree (Wesley Jonathan) lives with his girlfriend Desirae (Reagan Gomez), but uses their apartment to cheat while she's away at work. Upon catching on to Tyree's scheme, Desirae decides to teach him that two can play at that game. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Mr. Right Now!
A lonely single-mother falls prey to a crafty con-man in this play written by David E. Talbert and starring Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

What My Husband Doesn't Know
A frustrated housewife faces temptation in the form of a handsome young plumber in this live performance of a play by David E. Talbert. As the wife of a successful businessman, Lena Summer (Michelle Williams) seems to have a perfect life. But a glimpse beneath the surface reveals that despite having a spacious home and closet bursting with the latest fashions, Lena is frustrated. Her husband, a workaholic, is rarely home, and most nights Lena goes to bed alone. When Lena's husband hires a strapping, smooth-talking plumber to do some work around the house, the wife who once felt neglected finally starts to feel sexy again. Meanwhile, Lena begins to weigh the allure of taking a new lover against the potential costs of breaking her wedding vows. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
