Production Notes:

  • Cable premiere: December 9, 2000.
  • Filmed on location in Brooklyn and Manhattan and at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens, New York.
  • Author Terry McMillan was offered more money to make the film as a theatrical release but opted to work with HBO in order to be given the freedom to see her vision come to life.
  • About the director and the screenwriter, McMillan said, "They made the process smooth. I would work with them again any day of the week."
  • Terry McMillan is also the author of WAITING TO EXHALE and HOW STELLA GOT HER GROOVE BACK, both of which were turned into successful feature films.
  • Leonard Welch, the father of a child with McMillan, sued in 1990, claiming that the character of Franklin was based on him except it was mean-spirited and libelous.
    Among the songs used in the film are tracks by the Isley Brothers, Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway, Nina Simone, and Chaka Khan.
