He had a story to tell.

Eighteen months ago, a panel of talented film experts and I listened as Faraday Okoro pitched his idea for the film “Nigerian Prince.” It’s the story of a Nigerian-American teenager who, after being sent to Nigeria against his will, joins forces with an internet scammer to get back home.

Viewers everywhere will now get to experience “Nigerian Prince.” It debuts Friday at select theaters across the United States and on our own DIRECTV and U-verse video platforms.

Today marks an important milestone. This movie is the first film funded and produced from the AT&T Presents: Untold Stories program, in collaboration with the Tribeca Film Institute.

Like our friends at Tribeca, we appreciate quality storytelling that challenges us and transports us to new places. This is beautifully embodied in “Nigerian Prince.”
