The Pulse of Entertainment: TUBI Acquires Director Mark Hunter’s ‘3rd Degree’ | VIDEO

Director Mark Hunter.
TUBI acquires Director Mark Hunters’ film 3rd Degree.

*“’3rd Degree‘ is fictional,” said film/stage play director Mark Hunter about his film which was recently acquired by TUBI. “Actually, it was a play for 15 years.”

A veteran playwright and director, Hunter is bringing his stage plays to the big screen(s). He said 3rd Degree was originally meant to be a movie, but he didn’t have the money or investors, so he went the stage play route.

“I went to film school back then,” he added.

Hunter continued to write and direct stage plays. Currently, his stage plays and movies are extensive, and the list includes Woman Misled starring Tony Terry (stage play), I am Who God Says I am (stage play), Evicted Love (stage play), Manifesting a Real King (film), Eyes of Deception starring Christian Keys (stage play),  I Can’t Make You Love Me (stage play), and Man Up (stage play) directed by Shelly Garrett.

“Shelly Garrett was my mentor,” Mark said as we talked about his career milestones. “The first…to make me believe its possible to move into films.”

Hunter went on to explain to me about his transition into films, “I amassed a fan base (as a playwright) and a lot of support. (For the films) I take a different approach. (For 3rd Degree) I changed the storyline. It’s something everybody can relate to. Everybody has a crazy auntie, everybody wants revenge.”

The 3rd Degree film is part drama, part thriller, and part comedy. It stars Willie Taylor (Day 26/A Fool & His Money, Note to Self) who plays Deon Mays Jr. who witnesses the betrayal of his father by his father’s business partner. The film follows Deon as he seeks to even the score. TUBI is a streaming platform of Fox Corporation and has 64 million monthly users.

I write where I am instead of where I want to go….I pray over everything,” Mark concluded. www.TUBItv.com
