Getting news in real time on social media wasn’t really a thing until The Shade Room came along — and now the Instagram account has found another way to be innovative while pushing the culture forward. Angelica Nwandu, founder of The Shade Room, recently announced that the digital media company would be producing its own original programs set to debut exclusively on their Instagram page.
The four new original unscripted series (which will feature celebrity guests including Ray J, Amber Riley, Tami Roman and more) include “Petty Court,” a court show for guests to air all of their petty grievances; “Struggle Chef,” a cooking competition series and “F-boy Chronicles,” an investigative look into guys known as “F-boys”.
Veteran television producer and 3 time Emmy-nominated showrunner Tarvenia “T” Jones and up-and-coming producer Judith Nwandu will produce the new series while Nwandu will serve as Executive Producer. Nwandu said in statement:
“We’re thrilled to announce our first slate of original programming as The Shade Room celebrates its fifth anniversary this year. The series reinforce our commitment to providing entertainment that caters to black culture and allows us to collaborate even
more closely with our Roommates, who truly make TSR feel like a family.”
