The Hope Show
Talk shows ignite mass conversations on hot button issues of today, problems from the past, and future possibilities. "Murphy Law" assumes that the negative will always control. On The Hope Show, "Hope Law" reigns supreme and only the best and brightest aspirations will prevail with elevated vision!

About The Project
I am a big city girl relocating to the small town world of my birth due to unforeseen circumstances - 26 years after high school graduation, 19 years after my law degree, 8 years after my ministerial ordination, 2 years after my baby brother's tragic death, and 9 months after my dad's sudden health decline due to strokes and a heart attack. I now live the life of a primary caretaker of my beautiful aging parents, in my hometown, while in the career prime of my single, childless, life as an attorney, minister, and producer.
In my new life transition, the one avenue I have the most difficulty in replacating in the rural enviroment of Perry, Florida is that of TV/ film production. The HOPE Show is a creation re-born out of the desire to brand my own form of inspirational TV as Elevision (elevate + vision) and combines my love of counter culture, debate, outreach, and the arts. Instead of preaching people down into feeling guilty or projecting empty self-righteousness with countless moral parables, this inspirational show lives and breathes with the audience on everyday curiosity and struggles. The HOPE Show explores practical tools to improve life with Do-It-Yourself (DIY) segments and lifts the spirit with artistic and musical guests. The show celebrates and includes issues of southern living, church life, and the clashes of modernity and tradition. The show deals with conflict and controversy, but refuses to take everything too seriously. A host monologue and a hot button panel opens every show. There are also opportunities to include dramady sketches, as the production grows.
The goal is to keep the show 15 - 30 minutes or less per episode, air at least once episode per week, and premiere in November 2018. Filming in both Atlanta and my hometown of Perry, the production will dance between urban sprawl and country drawl. This will all make for interesting television. Elevision at its best!
