UP has released a new trailer and poster for its upcoming drama, My Other Mother airing this Sunday, September 21 at 7 p.m. EST. The film features an all-star cast including Essence Atkins, Lynn Whitfield, Jasmine Guy, Angie Stone, Greg Allen Williams and Kendrick Cross.

In My Other Mother,  Candace “Candy” Meyers (Atkins) is a successful anchor on a top-rated national magazine show.  Fiercely independent and committed to her job, Candy doesn’t make many friends with her demanding, gruff nature.  In fact, her only true friend might be her long-time manager Lewis (Cross).  Candy discovers that an anonymous fan she’s had for years has passed way – and he was her biological father Freddy Nelson!  Content with the love and support of her adoptive family, Candy has never been curious about her biological parents.  That all changes when she travels back for her father’s funeral, meets the Nelson family – including biological uncle Abner (Williams), Freddy’s wife Delores (Stone) and her two step-brothers – and discovers that her reclusive, angry and stubborn birth mother, Mary Jo (Whitfield) is going to be a challenge.  The journey these two surprisingly similar women take getting to know each other will break down walls and open them up to a life they never knew was possible.
