Legendary R&B Singer Jill Scott to Star in Lifetime Movie Network's Sins of the Mother

Original Movie Based on Carleen Brice's Novel Orange Mint and Honey Set to Premiere February 21, 2010

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20 -- Famed R&B singer and actress Jill Scott (The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) is set to headline the Lifetime Movie Network Original Movie Sins of the Mother, a touching story about the harsh realities of love, forgiveness and the closest of bonds between mother and daughter. Based on author Carleen Brice's moving novel, Orange Mint and Honey, the film features Scott as reformed alcoholic Nona, Nicole Beharie (American Violet) as her daughter Shay and Mimi Rogers (The Door in the Floor) as Nona's sponsor Lois. Sins of the Mother will premiere Sunday, February 21, 2010, at 8pm ET/5pm PT, on Lifetime Movie Network, Lifetime's sister network and the second highest rated women's channel.

ABOUT SINS OF THE MOTHER

Graduate student Shay Dixon (Beharie) reaches a crossroad in her life when she finds herself broke, burned out and unable to cope with the stress of school. With nowhere else to go, she embarks on a journey home to Tacoma, Washington, to face her abusive, alcoholic, estranged mother, Nona (Scott). When she returns home, Shay finds Nona living life as a recovered alcoholic, with a new daughter and completely transformed. Thrown by her mother's new path, Shay must now accept Nona's changes and influences, including her sponsor Lois (Rogers) -- all forcing Shay to move past her pent-up anger and awaken her own relationships.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Sins of the Mother is a Lifetime Pictures Presentation for Lifetime Movie Network. Damon Lee (Obsessed, Undercover Brother) executive produces. Paul A. Kaufman (Little Girl Lost: The Delimar Vera Story) directs the film and also serves as executive producer. The teleplay from Elizabeth Hunter (Beauty Shop, The Fighting Temptations) is based on the novel Orange Mint and Honey by Carleen Brice (Children of the Waters).
