Trailer for New Reality TV Show “Caribbean Wives of South Florida”
The Caribbean Wives (CWSF) was produced to feature Caribbean wives living in South Florida and across the states, raising families, balancing marriage, career/business, living the American Dream with a cultural difference trying to fit in.
The one hour pilot is completed, its new, its fresh and its different. The high point in this pilot was the combustion of personalities based on culture as the women interacted and socialized in various settings. For Caribbean people, its their education, where they live, what they drive, while at the same time adapting much of the American culture and lifestyle, bringing some level of satisfaction and perspective to what they consider achievement. Thus proving to themselves and everyone that they belong here like anyone else; that they too can be included with the rich, famous, prominent, successful American women.
Maxine J. Tulloch, the Executive Producer/Creator states, “As one of many ethnic groups in America, we are working to achieve respect, recognition, acknowledgement, credit and opportunities and we duly earn our positions in television entertainment. When Hollywood wants to cast and portray a Caribbean character, they train an American actor to play the part and mimic the accent, instead of hiring an authentic Caribbean actor. Why?? The Caribbean people remain invisible – we want recognition, respect and acceptance. Caribbean people are talented in all areas of the arts, science, education, business, sports, military and government and should be recognized for such. Yet Caribbean-American people remain invisible and under-represented in the television entertainment industry.”
The question was asked – “With the influx of so many reality series, what makes this one different?” Mrs. Tulloch responded that – “It’s different because there is nothing like it – Hollywood wants the high drama, the fight, the ridiculous conflicts, shock behavior – we bring none of that to the production. Yes there are conflicts, but they are played out differently, the Caribbean way, with class and dignity, our culture dictates how we behave and it is shown in our production – we are different, America has never seen the Caribbean in it true form. In this production we expressed the culture as best as possible.”
TMC is one of Florida’s most innovative and diverse media production provider, focused on reaching Caribbean nationals residing in the USA, Canada, UK and the Caribbean Islands. Acknowledging the diversity of USA’s demographic make up, TMC offers the most effective media channels to communicate with and engage the Caribbean-American Communities.
