Urban TV Network CEO Joseph Collins Jr. Makes a Bold Call for Increased Representation in Black Television Programming. CEO Joseph Collins, Jr. is making a bold call for an increase in Black programming on television. He believes that it is critical for the industry to create more content that resonates with and celebrates African American culture. This call comes as part of his overall mission to create more opportunities for African Americans in the entertainment industry.
Collins, whose network specializes in urban-focused programming, has spent over 30 years pushing for increased diversity in the entertainment industry. He believes that by creating more opportunities for African Americans, the industry can better reflect their unique experiences. “Black stories are not only entertaining, but they are educational and inspirational as well,” he said. “We must invest in television programs and feature films that show the beauty of our culture.”
QUALITY BLACK PROGRAMMING
In addition to increasing Black representation on the network, Collins also wants to focus on quality programming that will engage viewers both nationally and internationally. “We want our viewers to be able to connect with our programs on an emotional level. We want them to feel like they’re part of something bigger than themselve. Something that celebrates their culture and heritage while still being accessible to everyone,” he stated. Urban TV Network is creating more opportunities for Black creatives. Showing the world that our stories can be just as powerful, inspiring and entertaining as any other.”
Collins also wants to see more opportunities for African American actors and directors in Hollywood. He believes people of color behind the scenes will help create more authentic stories. But will empower those who have historically been marginalized in the industry. “We need to ensure that everyone is given an equal opportunity to succeed,” he said.
Ultimately, Collins hopes his efforts will inspire change within the entertainment industry. He plans on fostering an environment where everyone feels represented by what they see on television or in movies. “It’s time we take steps towards making sure Black voices are heard within all forms of media,” he said. “As an African American, I am passionate about bringing diverse voices and stories to life.
Collins’ call is being met with enthusiasm from many in the entertainment industry. Not only does it create more opportunities for more African American talent, but it also allows them to showcase their unique culture and experiences on a larger platform.
