At Risk (2010)

At Risk, a Lifetime network produced TV movie based on Patricia Cornwell's novel, first aired on April 10, 2010. It was followed by The Front one week later. Both these made for TV movies starred Andie MacDowell and Daniel Sunjata, with Diahann Carroll co-starring as Nana (the grandmother of Sunjata's character).

Neither of the two Cornwell movies managed to generate much excitement in the entertainment business, although many critics and viewers alike thought Diahann Carroll was great as detective Garano's eccentric 'Nana'. For example, Variety wrote in their mostly negative review of At Risk, that "Carroll is a welcome screen presence, creating the pic's most colorful and appealing character". Daniel Sunjata said in an 2010 interview with Jim Halterman that it was "truly, truly wonderful" to work with Diahann, continuing by telling that "when I [Sunjata] told my father I was going to be working with Diahann Carroll he said ‘Oh you have to tell that woman I’ve had a crush on her for 25 years!’".
