The Impact Network greenlights an aggressive slate of original programming. A total of twelve new shows have been announced for development; a fresh program line-up with household names that promise compelling content targeted to millennials and faith-based viewers. Executive Producers, Royal Jackson and Jean Chouteau will take the reins in delivering content to the Impact Network and its over 80 million viewers. Jackson and Chouteau team up to deliver a full spectrum of programming options, as well as scripted content and network specials to include the Hurricane Harvey Relief Concert, “Dear Future Houston” with James Fortune, a native and resident of Houston.

Jackson and Chouteau will oversee the new program direction for The Impact Network. About the announcement, Jackson said, “We are setting out to do something that hasn’t been done before in this space and that’s, merge the worlds of faith, inspiration, lifestyle and culture together in ways that are relevant to today’s audiences. With The Impact Network being the urban inspirational voice it’s our mission to uplift our culture and communities with positive imagery and messages that will empower them in their daily lives. Because what we see, we believe and become.”  The unveiling of the greenlit shows includes: “The Beyoncé’s’,”a reality series proving the family that slays together stays together. Famous people have families too and The Beyoncé family relies on humor and faith to maintain perspective in the devastated city of Houston amidst the backdrop of their own grief.  The music industry’s favorite singing siblings, the Shelby 5, will appear in a reality series titled “Shelbyville” and this family doesn’t just do music, they are music. The “Digital Don Show” is where life and tech intersect and steps into your home and gets you wired up or wireless!  Don Vito and his team of “digitizers”  update all the latest gadgets, appliances and technology in homes across the country on this energized, enthusiastic and evolved home improvement series.

The highly anticipated program slate will depict the complex life and life lessons of the redeemed and serialize honest stories. Chouteau shares, “There’s no lifestyle more exciting than serving the Lord and there’s no greater feeling than to walk in your purpose. Being able to deliver such a diverse variety of content is a dream realized. There is no joy, freedom or really any creativity in delivering the same regurgitated content to viewers or distribution partners. Viewers are maturing in what they want to watch and also evolving in how they view those programs. Beyond creativity you must understand fluidity; this is an absolute”.

Jackson and Chouteau have partnered to create television content to fill the void and meet the demand of both viewers and advertisers for positive quality television targeted toward millennials and faith-based viewers.

It would seem as if Jackson and Chouteau have delivered on the hype and buzz circulating around this highly anticipated lineup.  In addition to the aforementioned programs, here are the remaining greenlit programs currently in development for The Impact Network:  Tru G with Snoop Dogg – viewers will follow the journey of Snoop as he releases his passionate yet controversial Gospel Project. Grab your mate and save the date for “Marriage Matters”. Hosted by Shelby “Soullow”, it is said to be an invigoratingly engaging talk show with guest interviews, a robust expert panel and a live studio audience filmed in Atlanta, with a prospective air date of February 14, 2018.  The new program lineup also includes, Xscaping Hollywood, Fix It! with James Fortune, The Newt Testament, Impact the Stage and finally, a new makeover show that we can all sink our teeth into!  The Queen of Smiles follows dentist to the stars, Dr. Catrise Austin, the subject of Cardi B’s smash hit record, “Bodak Yellow”,  as she changes lives one smile at a time and on her own dime! Brooklyn Bosses offers a different look into NYC than we’re used to as this reality series follows philanthropist, musician, and tastemaker Melky Jean and a sister-circle of Brooklynites who pray before they leap, and they always play for keeps.  Want a closer look at the line-up?  Check out the full show descriptions and trailers of some of the upcoming shows on The Impact Network.
