Robert L. Johnson, founder of The RLJ Companies, and Tracey E. Edmond’s have joined forces to launch a new digital network. Alright TV will launch on Easter, March 31st. The network’s aim, in collaboration with YouTube, will provide comedies, talk, reality and music, along with Sunday church services streamed from around the country.
“I am very excited about the launch of Alright TV and the broad array of diversified producer-generated content that has been produced and made available through the channel,” said Johnson. “Tracey is an award-winning producer and I am confident that viewers will enjoy the new digital series that she and her team have developed featuring well-known artists and personalities from the faith-based, reality, sports and entertainment industries. Alright TV’s content and collaboration with YouTube represents the spectrum of new and exciting opportunities for consumers and advertisers,” he concluded.
“Alright TV is a groundbreaking channel that will revolutionize faith-friendly content viewing and will feature premiere talent along with rising stars,” said Edmonds. “There has been, and for some time, a lack of availability of faith-based, family friendly programming on television. Alright TV, in collaboration with YouTube’s global platform, fills this gap by making the genre available to everyone.”
The new network will combine Johnson’s and Edmonds’ vast knowledge of the entertainment industry. Their production studio, Our Stories Films, is the first African-American owned film production studio, with popular movies such as “Jumping the Broom”, already under its belt.
