Alright TV will debut Sunday, March 31st with comedies, talk, reality and music programming, as well as streaming Sunday church services from around the country. The channel is expected to reach aspirational and inspirational goals for viewers of all ages.
“I am very excited about the launch of Alright TV and the broad array of diversified producer-generated content that has been produced and made available through the channel,” Johnson said. “Tracey is an award-winning producer and I am confident that viewers will enjoy the new digital series that she and her team have developed featuring well known artists and personalities from the faith-based, reality, sports and entertainment industries. Alright TV’s content and collaboration with YouTube represents the spectrum of new and exciting opportunities for consumers and advertisers.”
Edmonds added, “There has been, and for some time, a lack of availability of faith-based, family friendly programming on television. Alright TV, in collaboration with YouTube’s global platform, fills this gap by making the genre available to everyone.”
Alright TV will utilize Our Stories Films, the first Black-owned film production studio.
