Karen Pittman, Erica Ash, Lance Gross, Joyful Drake, and Jermaine Love are all starring in Unthinkably Good Things. Terri J. Vaughn is directing the film based on a script by Cas Sigers-Beedles and it will serve as the first film under Hallmark’s new Mahogany banner.
Unthinkably Good Things centers on Allison (Pittman), a woman at a crossroads in her career and love life, in need of the love and support of her two friends Melina (Drake) and Reesa (Ash). The trio decide to take a trip to Tuscany and when they do, the reunion causes each woman to reexamine the state of her own life and relationships. While they have different personalities and perspectives, they know each other’s truths and help to make life-changing decisions.
Production for Unthinkably Good Things has begun and it is being filmed on location in Italy. It will debut on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries later this year.
The film is a Kronicle Media Production. Korin D. Williams, Monique Nash and Cristina Giubbetti serve as executive producers with David Wulf as producer.
Last year, Hallmark’s Mahogany cards — a line designed to celebrate all occasions in Black families — added a TV component to their branding. They are bringing small-screen original movies to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. The brand’s on-screen presence will focus on family, community, human connection, positivity and love through the lens of Black culture.
