The Dempsey Sisters - UP Original Movie

Premiere: Saturday, November 2, 2013 at 7 P.M. EST

Petite, take-charge, 27-year-old Deena Dempsey (Denyce Lawton) has been working unenthusiastically as a personal assistant for sophisticated, multi-millionaire socialite Olivia Norman (Lynn Whitfield) for a year.  Recognizing that Deena’s heart just isn’t in the job, Olivia decides it’s time to push the little birdie out of the nest and lets her go.  Understandably upset, Deena turns for comfort to her middle sister Sheena (Teairra Mari), an endlessly practical, 25-year old massage therapist, and younger sister Tina (Cymphonique Miller), a free-spirited 22-year old trying to find her way in life.  With time on her hands, Deena reevaluates her life and eventually decides to revisit a cherished childhood dream.  The Dempsey Sisters performed together as a singing group when they were kids, but finally disbanded the group when a music deal never materialized.  When their big brother, Thad (Antwon Tanner), a charming, fit 29-year old, brings home his new wife (with some surprising talents), Ava (TAJ En’Phiniti), and announces plans to focus on music management full-time, the stars seem to align for the sisters – or do they.  While their parents Theo (Clifton Powell) and Elizabeth (Valarie Pettiford) want to see their children succeed, not everyone is on board with the reunion plan.  It’s going to take practice, commitment, money for studio time and savvy marketing to start.  But if Theo can talk his way through music label assistant Andre (Dom Santana) to the major exec Taylor Powell (MC Lyte), then maybe the Dempsey family really can all live their dreams.
