Its BET premiere on August 2 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.

Middle Of Nowhere Still - Ema, David

In June, the initial announcement from BET was that the TV premiere of Ava DuVernay's 2012 Sundance Film Festival winning film (Best Director Award), "Middle of Nowhere," was set for this Wednesday, July 23, at 9/8c.

I just learned today that the film's debut is actually now set for August 2, starting at 8pm/7c. So if you were planning on tuning in to watch the film this Wednesday, or had your DVRs set to record it, you'll have to make adjustments to your calendars, and instead reset for an August 2 premiere.

To be broadcast under its BET Premiere Cinema banner, "Middle of Nowhere" stars Emayatzy Corinealdi, Omari Hardwick, and David Oyelowo 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. 

Lorraine Touissaint, and Edwina Findley round out the film's key cast, 

The film was jointly-acquired by Participant Media and AFFRM, and saw a limited theatrical release in October 12, 2012.

Its BET premiere on August 2 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. 

In the meantime, watch its trailer below as a refresher, and look to 2 weeks from now, when the film will debut:
