‘Couples Therapy’ Movie Airs On BET [Trailer]
Monday March 30th, BET will air “Couples Therapy” the movie based on the latest album of the same name, by Syleena Johnson. The movie is definitely a musical in disguise but not lacking in lies, cheating or drama needed to keep us tunes in.
The film was directed by Tangie B. Moore and stars Syleena and other R&B artists Leela James, Dave Hollister and Willie Taylor from the group Day 26.
About the movie, Syleena said:
“The movie is awesome! It’s based on the album. I sent the album to Tangie Moore of Tier2 Films, which is a very close friend of mine, who is an amazing writer and movie producer; her and Rick Atari. Tangie wrote a story based on the album and brought it to life. At first, I was like, ‘let’s do an hour special’, but then we said forget it; let’s do a movie! So we did a movie! It’s like ‘Purple Rain’ meets ‘Black Nativity’. It’s not like it’s a ‘Trapped In The Closet’ or anything like that where we’re interpreting the album. It’s a real movie, and what might happen is in the movie, you’ll hear a song and then it will break into a video. It’s a really cool idea. I just got really tired of the whole concept of dropping a song then dropping a video. It’s redundant and played out. I did something different to kind of enhance the whole concept of the album.”
