The press release doesn't say, but I think this might be TV One's first original film acquisition for a TV world premiere.  The film (covered previously on this site) comes from producer/writer/director Jeff Byrd, described as an urban contemporary re-telling of It’s a Wonderful Life, and titled A Beautiful Soul. Here's a synopsis for the film: R&B superstar Andre Stephens (Deitrick Haddon) is on top of the world. He has success, fame, and fortune but spiritually he has lost his way. However, his “perfect” world is shattered when his entourage is brutally attacked, leaving Andre and his best friend Chris Johnson (Robert Ri’chard) clinging to life. As his very existence hangs in the balance, Andre goes on a spiritual journey in a place that is neither on Earth nor in Heaven where he is given an opportunity to reevaluate his life, his faith and discover a beautiful soul. »
