“Mary is one of those phenomenal talents that can do it all,” said Tanya Lopez, EVP of scripted content at Lifetime. “We are so thrilled to be able to partner with her again on this new opportunity to bring her music to life in the form of a movie that we know audiences will love.”

Real Love will be a coming-of-age romanic drama that follows Kendra, who sets off on her own to attend college in New York. Kendra falls for her film class partner Ben, despite disapproving parents, financial hardship and more.

The film will be written by Sonja Warfield and Rachel Ingram. Jordan and John Davis are also executive producing through Davis Entertainment. Sony Pictures Television is distributing the project.

It’s exciting to now use this song and my music to create a new story by way of film, continuing to build on a pillar of the foundation of my production company, Blue Butterfly. My passions for acting and music now include developing diverse stories with music as the backdrop.
