I’d like to introduce to you our latest project called “Suspended” It’s a new inspirational kid and teen television Series. In addition to the growing list of youth programs and services offered throughout the year, we have recently joined forces with a National Christian Television Network and created a Christian television series called "Suspended". Suspended is a faith-based television show designed to entertain, educate, inspire and teach it's audience how to be good productive citizens. Statistics shows that kids and teens 8 to 18 years spend nearly 4 hours a day in front of a TV screen and almost 2 additional hours on the computer (outside of schoolwork) and playing video games. Research supports the premise that kids who view violent acts are more likely to show aggressive behavior and also fear that the world is scary and that something bad will happen to them. TV characters often depict risky behaviors, such as smoking and drinking, and also reinforce gender-role, sexual content and racial stereotypes.
This weekly television series follows a team of teenagers who were recruited into the Angel In Waiting program after a fatal car accident on their prom night. They are sent on a mission by God to Trinity Hall Youth Detention Center to try to save troubled youth who are admitted there. The juveniles and staff of the detention center as well as the love interests of the angels in waiting are featured in the series. In each episode, a real-life issue is addressed that adolescents face. The plot of the series becomes more complicated when two of the angels are corrupted by fallen angel/ villain, Size, and then go against their mission to save the youth; now their goal is to destroy the faith and souls of the juveniles. The juveniles now have to attempt their road to redemption while the angels’ battle of good vs. evil begins.
The highly anticipated television series, Suspended, is written, produced and created by Nadia Matthews. Nadia Matthews wrote, produced, and directed "A Ghetto Fairytale" at the tender age of 16. This production was a four night sell-out and all of the proceeds were donated to Lemoyne Owen College in Memphis. She later debuted her second stage play, "Bitter Sweet 16, in the Fall 2010. Nadia has appeared on national TV, first appearing on the Tyra Banks Show where she was deemed "The Goddess of Hope & Riches" and in 2012 on TBN. She has received dozens of awards for her philanthropy and positive work. Nadia, now 23 years old, is the founder of LilyRoze Studios, an all in one film, music, art, dance and theatre production company, located in Downtown Memphis.
