After producing hit films like Soul Food and reality shows for BET and TV One, Tracey Edmonds is looking to conquer the Web. In March, she launched Alright TV, a family- and faith-oriented Web network.
“Alright TV was born from my social media network, and the daily exchange of positive, inspiring and uplifting messages that I have through my social network,” she told Mediabistro in the latest installment of So What Do You Do?. “Viewers are hungry for faith-friendly and inspiration programming, and Alright TV has grown mostly through word of mouth, our online followers and within the faith community.”
Edmonds stressed that her team is always open to pitches for new programming. “We’re going for high entertainment value that has positive messaging. That’s the formula and the directive that we’re asking people to look for when they submit content to us,” she said.
