LENOX AVENUE...YOUR SHOW, YOUR WAY...THE TIME IS NOW.
We at ValDean Entertainment have been on an amazing journey over the past few weeks as we rolled out each episode of Lenox Avenue. You guys, our supporters, have been amazing (thank you, thank you, thank you) and there’s no way we could possibly repay your feedback, support, and love. Except, maybe to offer you this: a chance to help us make an extended season finale!!
That’s right. We’ve always considered Lenox Avenue to be a show for the people, by the people, and this is your chance to actually do that. We’ve been watching your comments and feedback very carefully over the last few months and we’ve been listening!
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be asking for your financial support to help create an extended length Lenox Avenue season finale!! That’s right...a season finale that is extended in length...based on your feedback over the last few months.
We are making great independent content, with characters you don’t see on TV or Film. These are your characters, that reflect your life, and we need your help to continue. Hollywood spends Millions of dollars to out advertise us, to drown out our voice. This is your chance to tell Hollywood what’s up!!
Help us change the face of television by helping us make Lenox Avenue...your show, your way.
HOW WILL WE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTION? WHAT WILL YOU GET IN RETURN?
There are tons of great perks that we’re offering (take a look to the right) and we’re really excited to offer them to you.But, you might be asking...”What will my money be spent on?”
Filmmaking is expensive. And, there are lots of people, places and things that are involved. Your generous contributions will help us pay for...
- CREW: camera operators, audio, lights, electrical, wardrobe, makeup, production assistants...they all work 13 hour days to shoot the amazing footage that is our show.
- FOOD: We have to feed our cast and crew who work so hard!
- LOCATIONS: We have to shoot our show somewhere. Rentals and permits cost money!
- EQUIPMENT: cameras, lenses, lights, audio gear, dollies...none of that stuff is free!
- CASTING: It takes time and money to audition the right people and to advertise the call for actors.
- TRAVEL: Some of our actors live in Los Angeles. We’ll need to fly them out here.- POST PRODUCTION: Editing, music rights, sound design...all the finishing touches that we need to do to make the footage we shoot look like and sound like a real show.

ABOUT LENOX AVENUE
Lenox Avenue’s creation was inspired by a need to fill the on-screen void of multicultural representation. With the current mainstream TV and film industry either lacking images of color or ignoring these images altogether, this series will not only represent a diverse array of images, it will do so by providing a balanced and multi-layered set of images. The ultimate goal of the series is to broaden the view and scope of African American life on-screen and give opportunities to actors who are immensely underused and a viewing audience that is often disregarded.
The rare treat of this show is its setting, Harlem USA. Not many films or TV programs have used Harlem as a backdrop. And the shows and films that have often made Harlem one-dimensional. Thankfully, this series not only lives and breathes Harlem USA but it brings the old Harlem sensibilities and marries them with the new Harlem ambitions. Harlem itself becomes its own distinct character in this series.
With a diverse cast of characters, this critically acclaimed program created by actor/producer Al Thompson, explores the varying dynamics of the growing pains of contemporary adulthood and the intricacies of modern romantic relationships. We fight. We love. We live in Harlem.
