Woman Thou Art Loosed, a two-hour movie adaptation of Bishop T.D. Jakes' self-help novel of the same title, will make its world television premiere on Black Entertainment Television Dec. 16 at 8 p.m. (EST/PST).
The film stars Jakes, Kimberly Elise (Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Manchurian Candidate), Clifton Powell (Ray, Friday After Next), Loretta Devine (Crash, King's Ransom) and Debbi Morgan (Coach Carter, Love & Basketball).
