Story:  On the surface it seems Jade (Meagan Good) has it all, a successful marketing career, a husband admired and respected in the community, and a young daughter they both dote on. But behind closed doors, her life is far from idyllic. Her husband Ed (Chiké Okonkwo) is a controlling man who is physically and psychologically abusive. When Jade decides to leave Ed, he tells her “If I can’t have you, nobody will,” a threat which becomes very real when she discovers he has hired someone to kill her.  Knowing no one will believe her, Jade realizes the only way to escape Ed is to make him believe the hitman completed the job and that she is dead.  La’Myia Good plays Jade’s sister Leigh.  Source:

Story:  Inspired by actual events, Blindfire follows Will Bishop (Brian Geraghty), a white cop who responds to a violent hostage call and unjustifiably kills the Black man (Chiké Okonkwo) in his own home. After Bishop learns of the victim’s innocence and that he was set up, he is suddenly facing repercussions for his actions. He is forced to confront extremely difficult conversations with his partner (Sharon Leal), as well as the family of the victim, and must examine his own accountability while attempting to find the person who he feels is actually responsible for this tragic chain of events, while examining his own accountability and the ingrained racism which brought him to this point.

This compelling drama echoes much of the conversation taking place in society today and offers a unique exploration of this timely issue from both sides. Source(s):; IMDB.
