Company Summary

Starting a television channel with programming designed by, for, and of the Deaf. We will have in-house production crews, and a Deaf Media College so more professionals can find employment and independence. The Deaf community does not and has not had a television channel in the history of broadcasting. This provides that venue for many Deaf producers already producing film and television content. This industry is new, overdue, and needs funding.
