announces the November 2014 nationwide theatrical release of "Playing For Love," a Robert Townsend comedy. Directed and produced by actor, comedian, writer and film director Robert Townsend, who is best known for directing the film "Hollywood Shuffle" that he financed, produced, and directed, turning him into a household name, is back at it again. "Playing for Love" stars Robert Townsend, Salli Richardson-Whitfeild, Esai Morales, Jenifer Lewis and Lawrence-Hilton-
Jacobs. The film is a dramatic, romantic comedy about an arrogant celebrated high school basketball Coach who gets his life turned upside down when a superstar player transfers to his school and his mother tries to take over the team. This leads to a feel-good comedy of epic proportions, with plenty of charging, blocking, personal fouls and slam dunks.
