"We set out to produce a film not only to address the global epidemic, but more importantly, the history among people of color regarding the way we think and the acceptance of our given gifts," said McCoy. "SKINNED will impact those who are struggling with their own identity and self-worth. There hasn't been a film to address this epidemic since Spike Lee's School Daze touched on the subject matter."

To make matters worse, her husband discovers her damaging little secret. With the assistance of psychiatrist Dr. Smith (Cycerli, Ash, Never Alone), Jolie (Burke) must go on a journey into her past to face her demons in an effort to sustain her future.

Additional SKINNED cast members include: LisaRaye McCoy (Single Ladies)as Mother, Drew Sidora (Step Up, Hindsight) as Clarice, Jolie's sister, Tasia Grant (Morningside) as Melissa, and Nollywood international film and television star Van Vicker (The Heartbreaker's Revenge) as Bobby.

Williams, and was executive produced by CEO Sharon Tomlinson of Studio 11 Films; CEO Dr. Clarice Kulah of Divine Entertainment Intl., and CEO Lotten B. Yeaney of Lot10 Productions in collaboration with Sky+Orange Productions.
