BET has announced the television premiere of Ava DuVernay’s 2012 Sundance Film Festival winning film (Best Director Award), “Middle of Nowhere,” which stars Emayatzy Corinealdi, Omari Hardwick, and David Oyelowo.
To be broadcast under its BET Premiere Cinema banner, “Middle of Nowhere” will make its television debut on BET, on Wednesday, July 23 at 9/8c.
Lorraine Touissaint, and Edwina Findley round out the film’s key cast, in a story that follows the struggles of an African American woman (played by Corinealdi) to maintain her marriage and identity, after her husband (Hardwick) is incarcerated.
The film was jointly-acquired by Participant Media and AFFRM, and saw a limited theatrical release in October 12, 2012.
Its BET premiere on July 23 will mark its first ancillary release since its 2012 theatrical run, which should be music to the ears of many of you who still haven’t seen the acclaimed drama.
