WARNER BROS. DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION TO PREMIERE CODEBLACK’S “POLITICS OF LOVE” ON DEMAND PRIOR TO DVD
Burbank, Calif., June 22, 2011 – Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Codeblack Entertainment announced their plans to release the romantically charged comedy POLITICS OF LOVE via Video On Demand (VOD) beginning September 1, 2011.
This platform provides film properties with a unique means to capture massive viewing audiences in more than 100 million homes. The film will be in the VOD space for a two week window before heading to DVD on September 20, 2011.
As the U.S. election campaigns get underway, POLITICS OF LOVE is a whimsical reminder of the historic 2008 season in which Barack Obama and John McCain faced off in a heated battle for the hearts and minds of America.
Wildly popular Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat shines as Aretha Gupta, an Indian- American woman returning home to work in her parents’ restaurant after a career disappointment, only to find herself caught up in the fervor of a local Obama campaign.
A staunch Democrat, she finds herself falling for handsome campaign manager Kyle Franklin (Brian White, Stomp the Yard, TNT’s Men of a Certain Age) with just as much passion for the election as she does. The catch? He is the leader of the local Republican Party. As she reconciles her beliefs with her heart, the social and cultural debate rages around her and her family.
POLITICS OF LOVE also features the luminous Ruby Dee (American Gangster), and Loretta Devine (Jumping the Broom) as Aretha’s loving and outspoken step-mother and grandmother.
