Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story Sunday, June 12

The Miki Howard Story” – Teyonah Parris stars in the upcoming TV One Original Movie which, will apparently be titled “Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story” (“Love Under New Management” was one of the singer’s top 10 hits). Christine Swanson directs the film which will tell the story of the R&B/Jazz singer and actress who enjoyed mainstream success in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with a string of top 10 hits, including “Come Share My Love,” “Baby, Be Mine,” “Ain’t Nobody Like You” and others.

The film, which is produced by Carl Craig and Eric Tomosunas and Rob Robinson of Swirl Films, will cover 30+ years of Howard’s life, both professional and personal trials and triumphs, including her relationships with the men, like Gerald LeVert, who played instrumental roles in her life.

Joining Parris in front of the camera are Darius McCrary as Gerald Levert, Gary Dourdan as Augie Johnson, LisaRaye is Sylvia Rhone, Amari Cheatom as Eddie Phelps and Vanessa Bell Calloway as Josephine Howard.

Swanson directed from a script written by Rhonda Baraka, which is based on a yet to be released biography by Miki Howard.

The film was originally slated to premiere during the 1st quarter of this year, but that didn’t happen. The below trailer compilation doesn’t give a date. We’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for any announcements. It’ll like premiere some time this year.

The question is.....why isn't Chaka's own story being told in a Lifetime TV movie?

Now that would be something. But i dont think a movie based off of her book would be too interesting. She couldnt remember a lot of things that happened, particularly in the 70s. I would be more interested in a script based off other peoples recollections. Remember that VH1 Behind the Music episode that she and Prince allegedlly stopped from airing because they portrayed her in a bad light? Well i get the feeling that documentary was more truthful than what ended up in her book. smile

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

My mom has that channel so I'm taping it to watch in a couple of weeks. I did see a brief scene where Indira Khan is playing her mom, Chaka. What I took away from the small part I did see is that C.K. introduced Miki to coke. eek confused

I DVR'd it and Im watching it now....Sad that her relationship with her mom was bad. I think the actress who played her did a good job and Darius did a great job as Gerald Levert. Love that Miki's actual songs were used in the movie. Seems like she went through alot.

NO... Miki was in the group later 1980 ... She came after 2 vocalist left including Helen Lowe (now know as Helen Baylor gospel superstar)
