NVision to be Featured on International TV Series
NVision is excited to announce the premiere of the 4REAL TV series on CTV and MTV in Canada and the National Geographic Channel globally. 4REAL is a series of half-hour episodes hosted by Sol Guy that takes celebrity guests on adventures around the world to connect with young leaders who, under extreme circumstances, are affecting real change on some of the most pressing issues of our time. NVision was selected to be featured with actor Casey Affleck ("Ocean's Thirteen" & "Gone Baby Gone") in one of the eight episodes produced.
In 4REAL Pawnee, host Sol Guy takes Casey Affleck to the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma to meet NVision. NVision is a collective of Native artists and community leaders who use hip hop, popular culture, film and visual and performing arts to empower Native youth. Sol and Casey check out the launch of the NVision tour that will travel to Native reservations and cities with urban Native populations. The tour, which includes workshops and concerts, promotes the message of the importance of leadership, empowerment and cultural pride. Sol and Casey also witness the challenges of reservation life that are often invisible to mainstream society. They are inspired not only by NVision’s passionate effort to combat despair, but by the overall pride and resilience of the Pawnee community.
4REAL airs nationally on MTV and CTV starting April 2008. Also in April, 4REAL will air globally on National Geographic Channels International (not including Canada, U.S., and U.K.) in 166 countries and 35 languages. Beyond the exposure that 4REAL provides, these young leaders are partners in the show, with 50 per cent of the show's profits going directly to their initiatives.
Other Celebrity guests for Season One are Cameron Diaz, Mos Def, Joaquin Phoenix, Eva Mendes, Casey Affleck, K'NAAN, M.I.A. and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The shows take you on unique adventures with these celebrities, but ultimately it's the young leaders who emerge as the stars. 4REAL inspires viewers with stories of their courage, creativity and dedication to tackling issues such as poverty, environment, health, children's and indigenous rights, drugs and violence in their communities and beyond.
