Have you seen TV One’s latest original film? Loved to Death premiered just last night and people already can’t get enough of it. The film, which stars MC Lyte, Malinda Williams, McKinley Freeman, Tobias Truvillion, and Chrystee follows the story of a newly engaged couple whose lives are cut short when they are gunned down by an ex-lover.
