In my dissertation I will be unlocking the secrets...

I will be researching, and ascertaining information from all networks and station executives about when, where and how they plan to open themselves to spirituality in mainstream television. Having my own personal background and first-hand understanding in the mindset of the midwestern/Bible Belt demographic and my own personal journey into embracing the expanding spiritual views/teachings/learnings/principles that are currently practiced on the West Coast which will soon be sweeping the nation.

I will be monitoring trends etc... interning at strategically selected networks and production companies... and preparing to launch my own creation upon completion... just in time for 2012.

Share the vision!
