I am so excited to see this TV movie this Saturday at 7pm on TV ONE! I had a chance to talk to the talented Marques Houston about his upcoming romantic comedy about a workaholic bachelor who must find a wife in 90 days in order to inherit his grandfather’s fortune!

Check out my interview with Marques Houston!


 A TV One world premiere, WILL TO LOVE, features Marques Houston (Sister, Sister) as Jamal Hawkins, a 30-something CEO and heir of the “Let It Roll” toilet paper company, who must find a wife before his grandfather passes away. As a quintessential bachelor, Jamal has no idea how to accomplish such a feat and must do so despite his half-sister Monica’s (Shondrella Avery, Napoleon Dynamite) meddling. He enlists the help of his secretary, Rachel (Keshia Knight Pulliam, The Cosby Show) and his best friend Danny (Black Thomas, Step Up 2 The Streets, Stomp The Yard) to find a bride who will obtain his family’s approval and win him his birthright. After devising a plan to audition potential brides and finding Candice (Draya Michele, Basketball Wives LA), Jamal develops feelings for Rachel and must make the crucial decision between following the money or his heart. The stellar cast also includes Valarie Pettiford (The Blacklist) and Gary Sturgis (Diary of A Mad Black Woman).
