BET nabs rights to 'Dough Boys' film

3 February 2009 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

BET has acquired broadcast rights to "Dough Boys," the debut film from Preston Whitmore's Give Back Raise Up Program, through which he finances and produces low-budget pictures showcasing newcomers in front of and behind the camera.

The film's first screening will be Feb. 5 at Laemmle Theatre. Paramount Home Video will distribute the DVD.

"It's hard to find someone that'll believe in you enough to put money up to back your dreams," first-time director Nicholas Harvell said. "Preston didn't just talk about it, he did it."

The film, which follows four troubled youths and the poor choices they make in the inner city, was penned by Wilmore. It stars Arlen Escarpeta ("Friday the 13th"), Cory Hardrict ("Gran Torino" "He's Just Not That Into You"), Maurice McRae ("The King") and Lorenzo Eduardo ("The Hammer"), Wood Harris ("The Wire") and Sticky Fingaz ("Blade, "Doing Hard Time").

Whitmore is writing a film for Imagine Entertainment and Pharrell Williams, »
