Tatyana Ali stars in ‘Second Sight’

This suspenseful thriller marks the third project executive produced by Radio One Founder Cathy Hughes and Executive Vice President of Special Projects Susan Banks.

Actress Tatyana Ali (“Zoe Ever After,” “Love That Girl!, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”) returns to TV One in the new made-for-television movie called “Second Sight.”The 43rd NAACP Image Award - Season 43

Premiering Saturday, April 23 at 8 p.m. ET, Ali (pictured right) plays Clara Randall, a young teacher whose gift of “prophesy” leaves her haunted by premonitions of horrific kidnappings.

A film reminiscent of the 1978 thriller “Eyes of Laura Mars,” Clara takes it upon herself to search for one of her students who has gone missing despite people’s unwillingness to believe her. Living in a constant nightmare, she has trouble understanding her abilities as well as convincing others – specifically her boyfriend Tony Prescott (“Texas Battle,” “The Bold and The Beautiful”) – that the visions are not just a figment of her imagination. After “seeing” the abduction of a student from her school, she realizes she must take matters into her own hands by following the clues from her visions. Along her mission to save this innocent life, she discovers disturbing secrets and lies surrounding those she trusted most.

“Second Sight” was shot on location in Los Angeles.  Denise Boutte (“Meet The Browns,” “For The Love of Ruth”) also makes her network return in the role of Tamara Johnson, Clara’s best friend. Rounding out the cast of  actors is Edwina Findley (Get Hard) as Donna Gray and Sharif Atkins (White Collar, Rizzoli & Isles) as Richard Gray, the parents of the kidnapped student Mary Ann, played by Jessica Pressley (For The Love of Ruth).
