Is it a mystery that the world's largest parade of talent / talent competition show is premiering on an independent all-digital network and hosted by star actor/singer Carrie Cain Sparks rather than a mainstream tv channel?
Not really, says sjLume.com Creative Director Shadow Mihai. "Stella James Studios is committed to a different vision than what people are used to on television," says Mihai. "We provide access to real talent, some with amazing, A-list level talent, and others with just a hope. Our point is to let the audience connect to real people without programmed and over-produced pseudo-drama or fakeness."
True to that goal, Coming 2 Hollywood is a practically nonstop parade of talented - and some not so talented - individuals who aspire to become entertainers and performers in Hollywood. Each cast member (and many of them are known to the audience already) has several short episodes devoted to them alone, and gets to display their talent, is interviewed, and tells the audience why they should be a successful star. The object of the exercise is to let people connect with people, to show the world the many facets of human experience. Stella James Studios is betting that people will fall in love with Coming 2 Hollywood, or at least with several of their favorite performers.
The show has far more than moments with a famous cast, though. Says director/producer Shadow Mihai, "Coming 2 Hollywood has actors, singers, musicians and performers of all sorts. So we needed a host and head judge who really knows acting while being a complete musical artist. Someone who relates to the struggle of the artists she is watching, but knows what it really takes to make it in Hollywood. That person really had to have a total ability to assess character and talent, pretty well on first blush. We found that person in Carrie Cain Sparks."
Before coming on board Coming 2 Hollywood, Carrie Cain Sparks starred in over a dozen movies of the week, several feature films and did original sound track and vocal work for independent film and blockbuster features including Jackie Chan's Rumble In The Bronx. She has worked with the best in the entertainment industry, such as James Woods, Samuel Jackson and more, and Carrie is one of the few who are acknowledged to be in the upper echelon of the acting community. Beautiful, with an infectious personality, an accomplished actor, composer, and a respected director and producer in her own right, Carrie Cain Sparks is the perfect host and judge for the personality-based Coming 2 Hollywood.
Stella James Studios has high hopes for C2H, which is now casting for its third season at coming2hollywood.com.
