A new kind of reality TV show is coming exclusively to Flow1!
A new kind of reality TV show is coming exclusively to Flow 1. For eight weeks, Flow TV subscribers can go behind the scenes with the participants from the 2016 Creators of Colour Incubator (CCI) program and learn how TV shows are made.
The newest product of Flow’s partnership with CaribbeanTales, Me On My TV chronicles the journey of ten (10) teams of Caribbean and Caribbean Diaspora filmmakers, who come together to compete for the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to create an original Caribbean-based TV series for Caribbean screens.
In Me on My TV, the 10 teams – selected from hundreds of applicants for the CCI, which Flow sponsors – embark on five action-packed creative days in Toronto. Under the guidance of 12 international mentors, they pitch their TV series concepts to a room full of television industry executives at the largest film event in North America: The Toronto International Film Festival. In eight episodes viewers get to share in the tears and laughter, camaraderie and resolve, as each filmmaker works for the chance to bring their show to Caribbean TVs – but only three will come out on top.
Participants face the critical comments and suggestions from the mentors as they present their own projects for the first time. They face the enormity of the work ahead in a particularly stressful day which culminates in a relaxing get together where they bond and share their efforts in addressing the tasks ahead.
The CaribbeanTales Media Group produces, markets, and sells Caribbean-themed film and television content for global audiences. It includes CaribbeanTales Inc. a registered Charity based in Toronto, Canada; the renowned Creators of Colour Incubator Program (CCI), a development and production hub for original Caribbean content; CaribbeanTales Worldwide Distribution (CTWD), the largest full-service distribition entity dedicated to the monetization of Caribbean content; CaribbeanTalesFlix, our production arm, and CaribbeanTales-TV, a video on demand platform.
