Trailer Debut for 'Hear No Evil' - TV One's Original "Edge-of-Your Seat Thriller" (Jill Marie Jones & Richard T. Jones Star)

Here’s the trailer for another offering from TV One’s announced expansion of its programming with the introduction of monthly original films, that will premiere throughout the year, beginning this month, February. 

It’s second of a first pair of 2 new original movies, following the Civil Rights-era set drama, “White Water,” which aired on Saturday, February 7th.

Titled “Hear No Evil,” and set to premiere on Saturday, March 14, at 8PM/ET, the film is described by TV One as an “edge-of-your seat thriller,” which follows a 15-year-old hearing impaired student who, after a freak accident, is suddenly able to hear, and then begins hearing messages from God, which leads to her discovering that more than just her hearing was restored in the accident.

Further… “Filled with chaos and confusion, Shelby struggles to cope with her newfound circumstances. She battles with what she should do with the knowledge of startling realities — including compromised health and well-being — facing the people around her. What initially seems to be a blessing on the surface could very well be a curse that unravels the bond between her dearest loved ones. Relationships are tested and secrets are revealed in this compelling story of family, faith and the resolve of a young girl.”

“Hear No Evil” stars Jill Marie Jones and Richard T. Jones as the girl’s parents, and newcomer Jahnee Wallace, as the girl. 

Russ Parr, from Up To Parr Productions, directed the film, from his own script.

Eric Tomosunas serves as Producer.

Lamar Chase is Producer for TV One.

Executive In Charge of Production and Programming is Tia A. Smith.

D’Angela Proctor serves as Executive Producer for the network.

This new original movie programming comes on the heels of what the network says was a strong 2014 that ended with the series premiere of “Hollywood Divas,” and the original movie premiere of “Second Chance Christmas,” as the network continues to maintain its position as one of cable’s top 10 networks among Black Women 25-54.

“Last year, we celebrated ratings successes in the performances of our original movies, including the premieres of ‘Girlfriends Getaway’ and ‘Second Chance Christmas.’ Increasing our rollout of original movies to an unprecedented number for the network provides us with the opportunity to offer our audience thoughtful and engaging content while working with talented filmmakers and actors,” said D’Angela Proctor, SVP of Programming and Production. “Our upcoming slate will showcase our talented Hollywood Divas, build upon our signature brand Unsung with biopics and deliver films that will have theatrical releases in the near future.”

Below is the first trailer for “Hear No Evil,” which premieres on March 14.
