Exciting news! I am now a Studio Camera Operator for The Better Show show, a nationally syndicated lifestyle TV program hosted by Audra Lowe and JD Roberto. Produced by media and publishing company Meredith, Better cleverly takes its name from Better Homes and Gardens magazine and features celebrity interviews, on-location segments, expert advice, studio performances, cooking and more.
Better is shot at Meredith Video Studios, a multi-camera studio in the heart of Manhattan where branded content and other programming are also created. The show is in its sixth season and is broadcast in 85 million homes.
You can watch Better in New York City weekdays at 6:00 am on CBS-owned WLNY Ch. 55. For other locations, check your local listings!
I had a fun time joining the women of Let’s Talk Film, a television series where contemporary women get a chance to have their voices heard on the latest film releases. Hosted by Stefanie Alleyne and produced by Denise Goines, Let’s Talk Film is broadcast in Manhattan on MNN-TV and its full episodes are also posted online.
My co-panelists and I munched on macroons at the Love Peace Cafe in Tribeca as we mulled over this moving film told with a light touch and interesting insights on race and class in contemporary Paris. Directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache with great chemistry and wonderful performances by François Cluzet and Omar Sy (winner of France’s prestigious Cesar award), The Intouchables was a huge hit in France but hasn’t really gotten its footing among audiences in the U.S.
