GeeChee One Films, a growing independent studio founded by entertainment executive Felicia Rivers, continues to create a major buzz in contemporary cinema with the release of its latest feature-length movie, Sugababies. Following closely on the success of its debut picture Treasure Box, which has topped the Most Popular Drama and Horror categories on popular streaming platform Tubi for more than two months running, Sugababies is ready to make a splash of its own. Produced, written, and directed by Rivers and her partner Isaac Hilton Jr., the gritty, street-level drama stars Diamond Mott, Patrice Jennings, and Shakeela Koffey Scott as hard-driven “femme fatales” navigating a dangerous underworld where money and power rule, but all is not as apparently sweet as “suga”. Since its November 1 release, Sugababies is now streaming on Tubi, Amazon Prime Video, Xumu, Vudu, Hoopla, and other top online platforms. The film’s extensive reach is made possible through the offices of global digital distributor Maverick Entertainment, the leading distributor of Black cinema in the world.

In addition to Sugababies, the coming months will also see the premieres of Lilith’s Ball and Sinful, which both star Nikki Natural of Love And Hip Hop Miami fame. The creative vision brought to life by Rivers and GeeChee One Films has seen such luminaries as Big V of Nappy Roots, vocalist Irish Grinstead of the girl group 702, and Hollywood’s own Omar Gooding appear before the studio’s lenses. Felicia Rivers has won widespread acclaim for her work, including Best Director at the 2021 On Point Network Awards, Best Filmmaker of 2021 by Prosperity Black Business Magazine, and even a glowing encomium in the December 15, 2021 edition of the Charleston City Paper. You can watch the Sugababies trailer below, the full movie is available on free streaming channel Tubi.
