I saw this when it aired as a mini-series on BET over three nights. It had good cliff-hangers. Calhoun and Kain really steamed up the screen. 2 thumbs up. I really like seeing Monica Calhoun. I guess she is best known as the bride in the "Best Man" movies. She is very cute in Intimate Betrayal, but also comes across as intelligent and sexy. A little bit of a ball-breaker, too, but that's okay -- Don't mess with her. Would love to see her in another real leading role.
This movie has an incredible cast. L Scott Caldwell won a Tony Award on Broadway for an August Wilson play. She plays a detective in this. And character actor Brent Jennings is the grizzled newspaper editor who warns the heroine about getting involved with a suspect in a murder case. Of course, she ignores him. We don't see enough of Jennings either. Erica Gimpel works a lot. She was a series regular on Veronica Mars. She might be recurring on The Chase. We'll have to wait and see on that one.
I'd love the see a series with these characters. The world of journalism could use some "good press" in the form a TV series about now. Even though the newspaper medium is changing, maybe a period series set back in the 90s, when they weren't all owned by giant media companies.
