Comeback Dad

Premiering on UPtv this Saturday, July 12th, 2014, at 8pm ET / 7 PT, is the telepic "Comeback Dad," which stars Tatyana Ali as Nima Babineaux, a woman who seems to have it all – she is an accomplished pianist who runs her own music school and is engaged to Spence (Brad James), a successful engineer who adores her. But, in truth, she has never recovered from her alcoholic father, Othell (played by Charles Dutton), walking out on their family, and it has made it hard for her to truly trust anyone. When Othell decides it is time to make amends and tries to reenter her life, Nima begins an emotional and eye-opening journey she didn't expect.

Loretta Devine co--stars as Malinda, Othell’s sister, in an ensemble cast that also includes Donna Brisco, Elizabeth Omilami, Ja’El Robertson, Takara Clark, E. Roger Mitchell, Todd Anthony and Palmer Williams, Jr.

"Comeback Dad" made its world premiere at this year’s American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in New York City last month.

Penned by newcomer Kimberly Walker (who won Honorable Mention Winner in last year’s “UP Faith & Family Screenplay Competition” at ABFF) the film was directed by Russ Parr (who last treated us to the church drama "The Undershepherd," which starred Isaiah Washington.
