The wait is over! THE FUTURE OF TELEVISION IS HERE!
GLO TV Network, the world’s only television network catering to the Urban LGBT community and it's allies, premieres Friday September 3rd 2010. To kick-off the event, GLO TV will host several events during Black Gay Pride in Atlanta, GA, culminating in a sneak preview of network’s biggest shows including: The Debut of Maurice Jamal’s “Friends & Lovers”, “Dating Dwight”, “Christopher Street”, “Gayest Sh-t Ever”, “Sex:2010”, "Living Life" and "Being Legendary" among more than 12 programs that will debut over Labor Day weekend.
“It is a long time coming, and something that the Urban LBGT community has wanted and deserves” said GLO TV President and filmmaker Maurice Jamal. “The premiere of this network is a labor of love rooted in the notion of providing a wide array of programming that shows our us in all our vibrant colors.”
Founded in 2010, GLO TV Network was the vision of Jamal, then the award-winning director of “Ski Trip” and “Dirty Laundry” who partnered with several key people in the entertainment and business world to create a network with wide ranging impacts. “This really is the People's Network,” Jamal said. “All across the country, I would meet people who wanted to see their experiences reflected on TV. The community asked for a place where they could see their loves, lives, challenges and success stories, and we took up that challenge“.
The network will be available through the web, cable and on-demand. It will debut first in the online space, and is a perfect place for the network, Jamal adds. "GLO TV is for everyone, so it was vital that anyone can turn us on, anywhere, anytime. The web allows us to deliver the first true TV network, to the whole nation, which is affordable, accessible and relevant".
“GLO is more than amazing TV programming, we have articles, national correspondents, news, and anything our community would be interested in seeing or knowing about. We want to be the one stop shop for the Urban LGBT community.”
