NEW YORK, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- An estimated 12.7 million viewers tuned in to see the U.S. television movie based on Lorraine Hansberry's classic play "A Raisin in the Sun."

Co-starring Sean "Diddy" Combs, Phylicia Rashad, Audra McDonald, Sanaa Lathan and John Stamos, the film debuted Monday night on ABC.

"This has been a life-changing experience for me. I love acting. In order to make movies, I have to be where the movies are being made," Combs said in a statement, explaining that he plans to divide his time between the East and West coasts so he can dedicate more time to his new career.

Combs is also a fashion and music mogul.
