A Raisin in the Sun, the up-coming made-for-TV movie adapted from the recent Broadway revival production, premiered at the Eccles Theatre at the 208 Sundance Film Festival in Park Ckity, Utah on Wednesday January 23, 2008.

In attendance were director Kenny Leon, with stars Sanaa Lathan, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Justin Martin, Audra McDonald, John Stamos, Phylicia Rashad and producer Neil Meron.

ABC presents the Premiere Event of A Raisin in the Sun on Monday, February 25 (8-11PM EST) on the ABC Television Network.

A Raisin in the Sun tells the story of a family living and struggling in Chicago's South Side in the 1950s. A fiercely moving portrait of people whose hopes and dreams are constantly deferred, "A Raisin in the Sun" was the first play written by an African American woman to be produced on Broadway. The highly anticipated special three-hour television movie adaptation of A Raisin in the Sun is based on the play that inspired a generation.
