About the show:
“The Spot TV” was created while my friends and I were stuck in my apartment during a 2008 hurricane in Houston, Texas. At the time, I was co-hosting a Caribbean radio show and had just became the new host of a Caribbean TV show. I developed “The Spot TV” as a way to showcase my own individual artistic talents as an actress and artist. I also wanted to take the show to an international level. I’ve always wanted to travel with the show not only to show my talents, but to show that of others. Wherever I am, that’s “The Spot!” “The Spot TV” is a groundbreaking web show providing viewers with global news and entertainment hosted and produced by myself.
The site features interviews and news about entertainers, athletes, playwrights, philanthropists, and much more. From fashion to finance, music, comedic skits, and drama shorts, “The Spot TV” will keep the audience entertained, yet informed about global news and events.
About the host:
I have interviewed Reggae and Soca artists from Wayne Wonder, Ky-mani Marley, Damian Marley, Freddie McGregor, Elephant Man, Bennie Man, Lady Saw, Tanya Mullings, Machel Montano, and many more for both television and radio. Being a remote host has given me opportunities to interview on a much broader scale with the likes of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee, Dwyane Wade, Young Jeezy, and Hip Hop mogul, Russell Simmons.
Why we need the funds:
Up until now, I’ve been funding my project myself. I’ve also done all of my editing. Although I can get quite creative, I would like to hire someone to edit the show at a much higher quality. In order to deliver a great product to distributors, I need to hire a great team, from cameramen, editors, and cast. It’s time to step it up! I have posted my past shows online and in a shorter time span than I envisioned it to be. My goal is to produce “The Spot TV” as a 30-60 minute show, for a major network, and showcase it around the world. I’ve always wanted to travel to different places to show different cultures around the globe. I also want to utilize my acting talents to produce short sketches within the show.

Why this project is my baby:
I’ve always loved being in front of the camera! I have wanted to push my show/career for a long while now. I have attempted to host for other people and have entered contests to be a celebrity correspondent for major networks, but have always come back to my own show. Hosting and producing my own show has been a burning desire inside of me for many years now!
Risks and challenges
There are always challenges in trying to produce my own show. Nothing but God will keep me from my goals! No matter what, I will continue to work on the show of my dreams!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
