FGW Productions & Transmedia teams up with Queen Latifah and Common in behind-the-scenes look at upcoming movie, “Just Wright”

TV One network special premiering May 7th at 9:30 pm ET/PT

LOS ANGELES (May 7)---With NBA playoffs in full tilt, the stars of “Just Wright” join in the action going one-on-one taking viewers behind the scenes of their new basketball-themed romantic comedy. Academy Award-nominated and Grammy-winning actress Queen Latifah takes on Grammy-winning rapper turned actor Common in some competitive b-ball and conversation about women, men, dating, sports and scoring big in the game of love. That’s the playby-play action unfolding in a TV One prime-time special, “Just Wright: How to Score in the Game of Love,” premiering on Friday, May 7 at 9:30 p.m. ET/ PT.

“This is love and basketball, but on a whole new level,” Queen Latifah tells viewers in the half hour special.

“People have been waiting a long time for a soulful romantic comedy and this is it,” says Common.

Single men and women everywhere wonder: when will they find that special someone? How will I know if he or she is “the one?” What are the telltale signs? What should I look for in a mate? What can I do to become ready for love and to be loved? And how do I move from the friend zone to the love zone?

“When it comes to men and women, relationships, dating, love and competitive sports of any kind, interest goes way up,” said Stephanie Frederic, president of FGW Productions & Transmedia. “Everyone can use a little help in improving a relationship and this special explores the process in an entertaining way. The special and film will make everyone smile.” The TV One special is produced by FGW Productions & Transmedia Inc. and executive produced by Stephanie Frederic and Flo McAfee for Fox Searchlight Pictures.

The special takes viewers behind-the-scenes and explores what makes some relationships work as the cast members are put to the test. Also included are exclusive clips along with interviews from the cast of the romantic comedy who add their two cents on love and dating from a female and male perspective. For example, they touch on why it doesn’t matter what kind of car a woman drives versus why it does matter for most men?

"Just Wright" cast members appearing in the special include Queen Latifah, Common, Paula Patton, Phylicia Rashad, Pam “Foxy Brown” Grier, James Pickens Jr., Laz Alonso, Mechad Brooks, NBA star Dwyane Wade, and ESPN commentator Stuart Scott. Check local listings for encore airings of the special.

Fox Searchlight’s “Just Wright” opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, May 14th.

"Princess and the Frog" Animators Teach and Show Kids Technique

ATLANTA, GA (March 9, 2010) --- Local school children and employees met and mingled with the African American animators and screenwriter who worked on Disney’s "The Princess and the Frog" during a Black History Month program held recently at Coca Cola headquarters in Atlanta. Under the coordination of Coke vice president and general manager Mark Pitts, the fun-filled program exposed the children and parents---many for the first time ever---to the exciting world of animation.

The program opened with a lively, informal discussion moderated by Stephanie Frederic, president of FGW Productions & Transmedia, which produced a television special on the movie (photo from left to right) and included: effect animator Marlon West; screenwriter Rob Edwards; communications manager, Shanda Williams; Bruce Smith, supervising animator; and clean-up animator Marshall Toomey. The special guests shared their inspiring and humorous personal stories of how they got into the business and described their commitment and the magic behind creating Disney’s first African American princess. For the children, the highlight of the day was sketching their own characters with the animators and watching Bruce Smith draw the Dr. Facilier character followed by Marlon West and Marshall Toomey adding the final touches that made the character come alive in the movie.

Everyone left with autographed movie posters, princess dolls and stuffed animals as well as magical memories from their time spent with those who played a key role in creating the NAACP Image Award and Oscar nominated movie. “The Princess and the Frog” will be available on Blu-Ray, DVD and download on March 16.

Los Angeles, CA December 8, 2009---History was made at the beginning of this year and is being made at the end of the year. During the first month of the year, we witnessed the first African-American President being sworn into office, and at the close of the year Disney’s first Black princess graces the big screen and makes her royal debut.

“I have a five-year old daughter… It means a lot to me to have a princess that looks like her,” says Marlon West /Disney’s Special Effects Animator.

Every African American girl has been waiting for that special princess, but so has every woman, mother, aunt, and grandmother. Everyone has been waiting for a princess who they can identify with and who looks like them. So who is this princess? What's her name? Who are her friends and family? Who are her foes? What does she want out of life?
