Let’s Talk Hair Talk show engages Black women in their hair journeys

New series is fun, relatable and necessary

LOS ANGELES – Let’s Talk Hair TV series is currently in the midst of an initial five episode run. The series is a theme-based TV talk show featuring the latest news, styling techniques, products, interviews, and discussions, all dedicated to the hair journeys of African-American women.  

Let’s Talk Hair features such celebrity guests as queen of comedy Luenell (Borat, Coming to America II), legendary hair stylist-to-the stars Kim Kimble (WeTV’s LA Hair), Sadiaa Black Beauty Guide founder and former Hype Hair magazine Digital Media Director Stephenetta (isis) Harmon, Grammy-nominated R&B singer and songwriter Syleena Johnson (TV One’s R&B Divas, Sister Circle talk show), comedian Yamaneika Saunders (Comedy Central Stand Up Featuring), and comedian and reality TV star Willie Macc (BET’s College Hill).

“The current five episode run is an important step in building the show’s audience, and developing relationships with broadcasters and advertisers alike,” says show creator and showrunner Olu Gittens. “Our TV station list continues to grow.”

  • The journey to be seen

Let’s Talk Hair’s premiere episode won awards on the film festival circuit and received distribution on the Amazon Prime Video platform.  The project has also gotten support from James DuBose, Head of Programming and Executive Producer of FOX Soul digital streaming platform, where it can currently be watched, and from local television stations that have allowed for its broadcast syndication.

  • The beautiful thread

“Black women and men are creating their own seats and whole tables in the beauty industry,” says Sadiaa Black Beauty Guide’s Harmon.

Let’s Talk Hair takes the macro level trends – like the billions spent by African-Americans on hair products, the natural hair movement – and breaks them down into delicious bite size nuggets. “And as much as our show is about hair, it’s not only about hair. We’ll get to explore subjects like travel, family, career, relationships, personal finance, style, business, life changes – hair is the beautiful thread that runs though all these other really interesting things.”

  • About the Team

“What I really love about our hosts are their wonderful personalities, their camaraderie, and their passion for hair,” says Gittens.

Comedian Del Harrison has been showcased on “Laff Mobb’s Laff Tracks” on TruTV, “Gotham Comedy Live” (AXS TV), “Laughs” (FOX), “The Mo’Nique Show” (BET) and more. Comedy legend Paul Mooney said it best, “Del Harrison has the IT factor.”  Ranker.com agrees, rating Del as one of the Top 20 Funniest Black women in America.

She has worked in front of the camera as a host and actress, and on the production teams for such shows as “American Ninja Warrior Jr.” and “America’s Next Top Model.”

Let’s Talk Hair at NAB 2018

On the heels of a successful screening in the Indie Night Film Festival a the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, Let’s Talk Hair went to the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) in Las Vegas for our campaign to garner support for the show. Partnering with Harry Hall of MME Hub/Brandworks USA, we were able to meet with industry professionals and TV executives interested in Let’s Talk Hair.

We also used the convention as a way to find out ways the latest technologies can be integrated into the production of the show and to promote the project within the industry.
