How do you mend a broken heart? TV One‘s new original film, DINNER FOR TWO, poignantly illustrates that it can be a long journey from love lost to acceptance. Premiering Sunday, September 2 at 7p.m. ET/6C, with an encore at 9 p.m. ET/8C on TV One, this complex love story stars R&B heartthrob and actor Tristan ‘Mack’ Wilds (“The Wire”, “90210”), and rising star Chaley Rose(“Nashville”).

DINNER FOR TWO stars Wilds as Chris Moore, a man trying to come to terms with true love lost, playing opposite Rose as his beloved Angela. When his soul mate, Angela, leaves him, his life becomes a complicated mess. Now he is facing a major decision about his future, and drinking heavily, as he can’t seem to move past mourning the relationship. Broken-hearted, Chris prepares a favorite meal that he and Angela shared on many romantic evenings together. As he breaks bread with the love of his life for perhaps the last time, he revisits what made him fall for her in the first place.

“We’re thrilled to be able to showcase the talents of the multi-talented Tristan Wilds and up-and-comer Chaley Rose, whose acting skills seamlessly bring this emotional and intricate script to life,” says Robyn Greene Arrington, Head of Programming for TV One. “Their natural chemistry lends itself to the story, offering viewers the chance to get lost in this relatable narrative of love and loss.”

By

After his latest stint in Avengers: Endgame, actor Don Cheadle is set to star in a movie that he will produce himself. The movie, which is entitled Prince of Darkness, will portray the inspiring story of the first Black millionaire, Jeremiah G. Hamilton.

Cheadle will be teaming up once again with Steven Baigelman, who co-wrote the Miles Ahead screenplay with him in 2015. This time, Baigelman will write the script for the movie adapted from Shane White’s book Prince of Darkness: The Story of Jeremiah G. Hamilton, Wall Street’s First Black Millionaire which won the 2015 Society for Historians of the Early American Republic Best Book Prize.

Hamilton, who escaped from Haiti in 1828, became a successful Wall Street financier in less than a decade.


He worked with white people in the business world, married a white woman, bought a mansion in rural New Jersey, and owned railroad stock on trains he was not legally allowed to even ride. He reportedly accumulated about $2 million until his death in 1875. Hamilton became the richest Black man in the U.S. as he braved the norm during that time. The inspiring story that will be adapted to film is expected to bring more awareness about his life and how became known as the Prince of Darkness.
