Garcelle Beauvais

Lifetime bolsters relationship with Garcelle Beauvais to executive produce three new original movies for Lifetime. Following the critically acclaimed Black Girl Missing movie in which Beauvais starred in and executive produced in 2023, Lifetime extends the franchise with two new movies with Beauvais set to executive produce. The movies continue the imperative conversations about systemic inequalities where missing girls and women of color are ignored. As part of this partnership, Beauvais will also team up with Lifetime on a new movie under the Terry McMillan Presents banner in which she will also executive produce and star in.

“I am so excited and grateful to continue my relationship with Lifetime because they immediately understood the importance of creating this now franchise with the Black Girl Missing movies. Having a network that stands by you and supports your mission gives me hope in humanity,” said Beauvais. “In addition to executive producing, I am thrilled to be starring in the Terry McMillan Presents movie because I can so deeply relate to being a woman who has to make hard decisions for matters of the heart.”

The powerful messaging behind Black Girl Missing has received critical acclaim including a Gracie and ASTRA Award from the Hollywood Critics Alliance for Best Television Movie. Black Girl Missing has also received nominations for an NAACP Image Award, a Black Reel Award and a Rockie Award.
