“EROS, as is true for all Punch TV originals, is quite different”, says Joseph E. Collins, the President of IC places, Inc., Founder and President of Punch TV Network. “We hear, see, and view so much entertainment contents about unrequited love - that Punch TV wanted to provide viewers with true stories that demonstrated that true love…storybook love, is possible. EROS consists of a group of true mini-series about real people who have experienced incredibly beautiful emotional and physical love,” continued Mr. Collins. Steve Samblis, IC Places Chief Executive Officer, says, “The first EROS mini-series is called Emmanuel and Me. It is the true story of a 30-year old Cameroonian businessman who meets and marries a 65-year old American business woman.”
Punch TV’s unique approach to independent television is very much apparent in EROS: Mini-Series #1, Emmanuel and Me. “Rather than casting the show based upon the physical resemblance to the real life characters, the show was cast based upon whether their spirit and essence reflected that of the persons upon whom their characters were based,” says Sid Burston, the Punch TV in-house staff-person who is the Director and Producer of EROS.
EROS Co-Director, veteran actor Fitz Houston, points out another incident that reveals Punch TV commitment to the spirit of independent television, “It was 3:00 a.m. in the morning and an actor became too ill to perform, panicked, we called Joseph Collins. Joseph got out of bed, came to the location and performed the role himself,” Mr. Houston continued.
EROS can be viewed on Punch TV Network as part of its Fall lineup of shows. This three episode mini-series, Emmanuel and Me is a story that speaks to the possibility of love for individuals everywhere.
