TV One will premiere the 2-hour original movie, "Girlfriends’ Getaway," which stars Garcelle Beauvais, Terri J. Vaughn, Malinda Williams and Essence Atkins, in a dramedy, shot entirely on location in Trinidad, that tells the story of an innocent birthday getaway taken by 4 longtime friends that turns into a life changing adventure. 

Beauvais stars as Vicky Holmes, a successful business owner, who is outwardly hitting a stride in love and life. However, just days before a romantic birthday trip, she is blindsided by her boyfriend’s decision to relocate and end their relationship. Vicky ultimately decides to bring her best girlfriends - who are all facing turning points in their lives as well – with her, for a grown-up girls getaway in Trinidad. After their first wild night, an innocent mistake sets off a chain of events that will forever change each of their lives. When the very pregnant Sophie (played by Vaughn) is kidnapped and held for $10,000 ransom, the remaining girls have 24-hours to come together in order to get Sophie back safely or end up in jail.

Set to air this Saturday, August 30 at 8PM/ET - with an encore at 11PM/ET and at 11AM/ET on Sunday, August 31st - "Girlfriends’ Getaway" is directed by Roger M. Bobb ("Raising Izzie"), who also served as the film’s Executive Producer with Angi Bones serving as Producer. 

The film was written by Cas Sigers-Beedles, and is a co-production between Bobbcat Films and Siger’s and Vaughn’s Nina Holiday Entertainment.

"As summer winds down this Labor Day weekend, we are excited to bring this hilarious and fun film to our audience to serve as a reminder to appreciate our friendships every day," said D’Angela Proctor, SVP of Programming and Production for TV One.
