BET Networks continues to bring you the best in Black cinema with the world television premiere of LUV, the critically acclaimed film starring Common, Danny Glover and Meagan Good.

Luv, which was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at last year's Sundance Film Festival, is a dramatic crime thriller that plunges the audience into a world of hope, violence and self-determination. Common plays Vincent, a recent parolee and uncle to Woody Watson, a timid, orphaned 11-year old boy from Baltimore (newcomer Michael Rainey Jr.) who dreams of a better life. But Vincent’s former life and criminal past soon comes back to haunt them both. 

LUV, directed by Sheldon Candis, fits perfectly with BET Premiere Cinema's mission to introduce audiences to critically acclaimed films and documentaries.

LUV premieres August 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT only on BET. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music
