Viola Davis, one of the current popular black actresses has partnered with her husband, Julius Tennon, to form a movie production outfit known as “Juvee Productions”, to bring to the screen stories that matter. The duo have continued to work together and many of the movies, documentaries, and series they produced for theaters, television, and film have won many recognitions and awards. There is one motive behind the formation of this production line, and that is to re-awaken the consciousness of their audiences to issues that matter, especially in minority communities across the country.
Emerging Artist Series
One of the recent works Viola Davis's production platform is working on is the five-part series, “Emerging Artist Series”. This has been one of her most impactful projects in recent times because it brings the spotlight on the struggles and challenges of emerging artists. Viola believes that the dream of every aspiring artist is within reach but they must believe in them to bring them to reality.
The Emerging Artist series will take selected and auditioned young talents through a series of training and real tests to get them prepared for the film industry. Many have come to see the program as a boot camp sort of, but Viola believes it is more than that because it will bring out the best from young talents and help them work on their craft.
