The show will operate as a forum for discussion on compelling subjects and topics of interest within the community, while showcasing inspirational stories from talented guests with different ethnic backgrounds within Canada, the Caribbean and its Diaspora.
“I created this venue because I saw something missing, where we were not showcasing our own talent. The Urban Review is the solution and will become a staple within the community”, says Andrew Brotherson, Creator and Producer of The Urban Review.
The show will stream on www.theurbanreview.com and all new webisodes will be available bi-weekly. Show topics include: entertainment, lifestyle, business politics and social issues. The inaugural webisodes boasts burgeoning urban entrepreneurs making a difference with unique and innovative ideas that set them apart from mainstream business ventures.
Hosted by local talent, Hallie Dixon, a mainstay in the Canadian film and fashion community, she is a true reflection of the audience and community The Urban Review seeks to satisfy.
“My own experience within the entertainment world is what brought me to the Urban Review…I want to see a venue that nourishes young talent and gives them the opportunities that until very recently, were so hard to come by,” says Dixon.
The Urban Review’s goal is to celebrate, inspire, and unify the community, highlighting stories and issues that will showcase local talent in a positive light. Home to extensive perspectives of programming, The Urban Review, was created to fill the void of urban entertainment talent that currently exists within Canada. Its goal is to ensure the continued development and growth of a community thriving with potential and undeveloped talent. Launched July 1, 2009 the Urban Review streams new, innovative webisodes at www.theurbanreview.com.
