Chicago Talent is a new Chicago reality show that showcases the lives and endeavors of several Illinois artists and entrepreneurs. It is taking a new angle to the idea of creatives being successful in business. As so many people envision LA or NYC with this subject, we want to make sure that Chicago is represented as well. It will show them at work, at play and even some emotional moments that occur behind the scenes of such hardworking, ambitious talents. What you normally wouldn’t see when browsing their social media, websites or even interviews, you will see on this show.
The series is set to air between 5 and 6 episodes in its premiere season online to an audience of at least 50,000 viewers. The first episode is scheduled to air August 19th via their Facebook episodes platform. Think Jada Pinkett-Smith’s “Red Table Talk” broadcasting set up. The premiere party for the show will be held August 16th downtown Chicago. The first season being their test run, the cast and its producers are taking a leap of faith. It is being produced, edited and filmed by the same team who released The Fresh Faces Project documentary, having gained over 30,000 Facebook views within its first month of release.
The creator of the show and executive producer, Calynn M Lawrence, is a 22-year-old seven time award winning publicist and magazine editor with a specialty in the fashion and entertainment industry. She is using this new platform, Chicago Talent, as an extension of her nonprofit campaign The Fresh Faces Project to continue in her overall career mission of bringing the exposure and promotion that underrated talents deserve. Having invested much of her own personal money into the release of the show, she earnestly hopes that viewers will fall in love with the concept and support the talents she believes in so much.
