After the falling out of a nasty divorce, hot shot lawyer Bruce Beverly and his ex-wife, leading hair care creator Felicia Dennis, risk losing the power of their public status through shady secrets, hidden motives, and emotions that can ruin their family’s “prestige” reputation.
Felicia Dennis, a wealthy hair care stylist and creator, has a hard time adjusting to her new life as a divorcee. As she wallows in heavy states of depression, her oldest daughter, Cherelle (Cheri), and her son Chance, fight to get her out of her melancholy state. Chanel, Felicia’s other daughter has been M.I.A for the last 24 hours, but Cheri and Chance are more irritated than they are concerned about their sister’s disappearance. After calling for backup, Felicia’s sister, Pamela stops by to help Felicia snap out of her depressive state so that she can focus on her annual, career accomplishing hair & fashion show that is taking place later on that evening. As the best of the best in celebrity and style make their way to Metro Detroit’s hottest Hair & Fashion show, the beginnings of the Beverly family drama start to unfold as Bruce Beverly, a hot shot lawyer and the ex-husband to Felicia, makes an unexpected appearance leaving Felicia in a state of shock. And as their worlds collide again, the individual conflicts of their children come to the forefront while the celebration of Beauty and Fashion rips the runway, making for a shady ride.
As one that grew up watching Daytime Soap Operas and being named after a Soap Opera character, my intent is to merge the nostalgia of the original Soap Opera format into today’s world with topics that deal with: family toxicity, Christianity vs. African Spiritually, Loss of self-identity, Infidelity, Sexual liberation, just to name a few. This is an opportunity to showcase a unique way of storytelling that shifts the popular narrative of repetitive mediocrity that is currently taking possession in a lot of Indie projects that are being displayed in the urban community.
