Subject: [mavin] wanna be on TV?
Michelle Niger called me this morning. She is an associate producer for a new women’s talk show called “Life & Style.” I have pasted the text of a press release below which has information about the show and its co-hosts.
She is currently preparing for a segment about biracial families which will be recorded in New York City NEXT WEEK! She is looking for biracial children and their parents who are willing to discuss the challenges they face. Travel expenses will be covered.
MAVIN does not promote this show but is just helping by forwarding the opportunity to mixed race families.
If you are interested, please contact Michelle toll free at 1.877.791.9118 or firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP!!!
MAVIN Foundation creates innovative projects that celebrate mixed race people and families.
Meet the women of “Life & Style”: Jules Asner, Cynthia Garrett, Lynne Koplitz and Kimora Lee Simmons. The one-hour strip from Sony Pictures Television will be the ultimate guide to life and style issues for women, identifying the newest trends and hottest topics in pop culture, relationships, fashion and celebrity news, as well as telling compelling, edgy stories about important issues from a modern, honest point of view. “Life & Style” will offer expert advice and how-to segments for viewers to incorporate into their daily lives, featuring a mixture of first-person, narrative field pieces, along with in-studio interviews. Hosts include: Jules Asner, who most recently served as host of “Revealed With Jules Asner,” a one-hour celebrity profile series for E! Entertainment Television; Single mother Cynthia Garrett, who has served as correspondent for a number of series and specials for VH1, and was also host of NBC’s late-night interview series “Later” from 1998-2000; Comedienne Lynne Koplitz most recently served as co-host of “How to Boil Water,” a humorous cooking show airing on The Food Network, and has been a featured comic at New York City’s most prestigious comedy clubs; and Kimora Lee Simmons, wife of Russell Simmons and the chief executive officer and creative director of Baby Phat, an aspirational lifestyle clothing line specializing in sexy, urban fashion for women.
Through the four co-hosts, the show will reflect the passions and concerns of the modern woman, addressing the lifestyle issues that real women talk and care about, talking to women the way they talk to themselves.
