Keri Hilson has a starring role in the TV One original movie, Don’t Waste Your Pretty, which is inspired by Demetria L. Lucas’ 2014 book by the same name. The film will premiere next month on the cable network.
The movie centers on a group of tight-knit friends as they navigate their love lives, careers, and personal relationships. Hilson plays Mykah, a woman who can’t seem to find a man she has a connection with.
“How do I find this magical man?” Mykah asks a friend in the trailer.
