Choice Skinner Dramedy ‘A NEW LIFE’ Secures On-Demand Release August 11, 2023 from Buffalo 8

Buffalo 8 acquires distribution rights to A NEW LIFE, a moving and exciting romantic dramedy about family, love, and new beginnings from award-winning filmmaker Choice Skinner (Wingman Inc., Black Lightning Tobias’ Revenge). The film is slated for TVOD release in North America beginning August 11, 2023, on Amazon Prime and all major digital platforms.

A NEW LIFE follows Ronald, a devoted father who reluctantly enters back into the dating scene with the help of his young daughter, six years after the untimely passing of his wife.

The film stars Chris Rouse (The Wrong Valentine) opposite Daffany McGaray Clark (John Henry, Fosters) in the leading roles. The cast also includes Kyndra Mack (A Rose In Concrete), Danny Joo (All American), Danny Royce (NCIS), Joan Moten (Maggie) and Kailah Ami, making her acting debut alongside NFL star Josh Butler.

Skinner wrote, directed and produced the project under his Darkan Entertainment banner, along with co-producers Janessa A. Morgan, Shar Ross and Chris Rouse. Executive producers include Roger Julian Cross for Royal Tramp King Films, Shar Ross for Ross Stephens Artists and Entertainment, and Matthew Helderman and Luke Taylor through Buffalo 8. 

Skinner set out to tell a story showcasing Black men through another lens, explaining “Black men are multi-faceted and so much more than what is often shown in current media. We love, mourn and nurture, despite our struggles. We are also fathers, brothers, and great providers to our families. I hope this film will entertain audiences, but also help change the narrative by offering a different perspective of black men today.”

A Brooklyn native, Choice Skinner first gained attention as a filmmaker for his award-winning dramatic short Brotherly Love, followed by winning Octavia Spencer’s Facebook Short Film Competition with his short A Second Thought. He went on to direct his first full length feature film, Wingman, Inc., teaming with writer-producer Tony Germinario. Currently, Skinner is in post-production on his third feature film release, Keep The Faith. Skinner began his entertainment career as an actor and has amassed numerous credits including the TV shows All American, The District, How I Met Your Mother, The Shield, and Lost, as well as the films Killjoy 2 Delierance From Evil, Black Magic, Cryptz, Transylmania, and Free Samples starring Jessie Eisenberg and Jason Ritter. 

In 2010, Skinner formed Darkan Entertainment, an independent film and media production company dedicated to creating high-quality film, television, and media content with a focus on redemptive and empowering themes, expressly related to the underrepresented Black community. 

Choice Skinner is repped by Ross Stephens Artists & Entertainment.
