Viola Davis to Produce New Web Show ‘Emerging Artists Series’

Viola Davis and husband Julius Tennon’s production company JuVee Productions has released a new five-part web series called “Emerging Artist Series,” which highlights the experiences of multiple up-and-coming creatives working in several different areas throughout the entertainment industry.

“We put this series together because we wanted to give artists a platform to share their experiences. It’s an important part of the inclusion conversation happening now in Hollywood that’s often overlooked…simply giving people the space to be heard,” Tennon said.

The series was produced by Lisa Nicole Bell, who utilized her experience with documentaries and unscripted television to showcase the varying twists and turns of each artist’s journeys.

The web series comes on the heels of the April announcement that JuVee Productions is attempting to raise $250,000,000 in an effort to expand globally and increase their production of diverse and inclusive content. The production company’s latest effort is the short “Night Shift,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year.
