June 14, 2016 – The critically acclaimed film, “Skinned” will make its global television premier debut on June 19, 2016 at 7pm EST on the U.S. American Forces Network dedicated to delivering quality entertainment programming for the men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces in more than 174 locations around the globe.
Accomplished actress LisaRaye and Avery O Williams co-directed SKINNED to address the global misusage of skin lightening products. “We set out to produce a film not only to address the global epidemic, but more importantly, the history among people of color regarding the way we think and the acceptance of our given gifts” said LisaRaye.
Sharon Tomlinson, CEO Studio 11 Films is the co-producer and co-writer behind the film said, “Since the airing of the film on TV One Network back in January 2016, we have been receiving phone calls from the media regarding this subject matter on the epidemic of skin bleaching and its effect regarding people of color.
“Though African Americans are 10 percent of the buying audience of skin lightening products, it is a multi-billion-dollar market in Africa with Nigeria taking the largest portion at 77 percent” said Sharon Tomlinson.
Clint Evans, Vice President Distribution, Studio11 Films stated, “This film will impact those who are struggling with their own identity and self worth. We are elated that the U.S. American Forces Network chose our film as part of their programming slate. We look forward to our continued relationship to support the men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day.
The producers of SKINNED, Sharon Tomlinson, CEO, Studio 11 Films, Dr Clarice Kulah, CEO, Divine Entertainment Intl. and Lotten B. Yeaney, CEO, Lot10 Productions.
