Premiering on February 13, 2021 on Lifetime – A Ripped from the Headlines Original Movie – Death Saved My Life.
This movie stars Meagan Good along with her sister La’Myia Good & Chike Okonkwo. In this movie the discussion in regards to the stigma of Mental Health within the Black community comes the forefront as the main character suffers from Bipolar Disorder.
This movie should serve as a way to shed light on how individuals with Mental Disorders should not be looked at as outcasts but as regular individuals who just have minds that work differently.
With the intense scenes I asked La’Myia Good about decompressing after scenes and she provided great insight. Check out the Q&A below:
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. Death Saved My Life is produced by Jarrett Creative. Executive producers are Julie Insogna Jarrett, Seth Jarrett and Meagan Good. Seth Jarrett directs from a script written by Barbara Kymlicka.
