DC Homegrown Entertainment
is the culmination of two DC-born and raised women.
Our vision and goal is to write, direct and produce television programming and films that tell interesting
and thought provoking stories.
Our concepts are fresh and original and ready to be told. For too long, programming choices about people of color have been
limited by various controlling factors. Mainly, how can you tell the story if you don't know the story?
We have also grown tired of the obvious void in television/cable programming that accurately represents other facets of the urban experience... in other words,
we don't all live in "the hood." We are overdue and sadly lacking in the choices given to us for entertainment by the mainstream mediums. It's time someone raised
the banner a bit higher, which is why
DC Homegrown Entertainment
was birthed. When we realized that we both had the same driving
force and concern -- to produce better television programming and films and center them around the urban experience -- we knew this was the confirmation we had individually sought.
We got together and decided to form DC Homegrown Entertainment and pool our collective creative energies.
