Tamala Jones, Dominique Perry (Tasha on “Insecure”) and rapper Bone Crusher have started production in Atlanta on “Deadly Dispatch,” a suspense film due in 2019 for TV One.
Bone Crusher plays Shawn, the well-liked owner of a struggling taxi company who is gunned down in his own car while picking up a mysterious client. Tiffany (Jones) is a local salon owner and Shawn’s longtime, high-school best friend who becomes intertwined in the puzzling circumstances surrounding his death.
Unsatisfied with police calling the case a “robbery gone wrong,” Tiffany becomes suspicious of Shawn’s grieving widow Amber (Perry). Motivated to find out what really happened to her friend that fateful day, Tiffany embarks on a quest that will not only endanger her strained marriage, but her life as well. Will she be able to come to terms with a deep secret shared between her and Shawn while seeking justice?
