New Show About Crimes Captured on Cell Phones
INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed filmmaker Warren D. Robinson (image below).
Scott Sternberg Productions launches its new daily video show iCrime with Elizabeth Vargas in national syndication. The new daily program features the most shocking crimes happening in public and all captured on someone’s cell phone. “With cell phone cameras being ubiquitous now you would think that would give people pause about committing such violent or blatant crimes in public,” says entertainment executive, producer and lawyer Warren D. Robinson, “yet it really doesn’t and the public gets to benefit from that in this wildly entertaining caught on camera series.” While the premise may conjure up thoughts of America’s Funniest Home Videos, Cops or Cheaters, iCrime is very different from those shows. Hosted by venerable former ABC news reporter Elizabeth Vargas, Robinson says iCrime is more than just a gotcha video series, “the show includes safety experts, police and others to analyze what you’re viewing and provide tips as well as commentary that may prove useful if you ever find yourself in a similar situation.” Cleared in over 90% of the country, if you want to watch iCrime check your local listings or visit www.ssprods.com to see when it airs in your city.
According to a statement, “Entertainment executive and producer, Warren D. Robinson believes that when organizations are willing to have open and honest conversations about race and their own bias they can commit to meaningful change. We have seen this recently in the form of Hollywood award shows, particularly, the Grammys and the Academy Awards (Oscars). The Recording Academy and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have both taken concrete steps to diversify their ranks and address inherit biases in their voting processes. As a result we have the most diverse crop of award winners/nominees, respectively, we’ve ever seen. Contrast that with the scandal and production shutdown currently at CBS’s The Talk, which resulted because a co-host was unable to properly engage in a conversation about race, address her own bias and commit to doing better. ‘The key part to every conversation’ Warren says, ‘starts with listening. Listening and hearing are different and if you are unable to listen then you are unable to have a conversation.’
“Warren D. Robinson, is an avid and accomplished entertainment executive, motivational speaker, host, life coach and award winning producer who created the wildly popular series, Buried by the Bernards, which is currently streaming on Netflix.
“Warren has served as an entertainment consultant, manager and producer, facilitating, appearing and negotiating high powered deals on behalf of his clients in front of such companies as: Warner Brothers, BET, CNN, Freemantle, Best Buy, TV ONE, Netflix, Lifetime, Fox News, WE TV, E!, NBC Universal, Viacom and more. In addition, Warren’s entertainment prowess includes coordinating, partnering and/or producing events for: legendary actress Pam Grier, Taraji P Henson, Gabrielle Union, Vivica A Fox, Soul singer Eddie Levert (of the O’Jays), Comedian Mike Epps, Angie Stone, Flavor Flav, the Indianapolis Colts, Donna Joyner-Richardson, Stephanie Mills, Erykah Badu and Tom Joyner among others.
