Debra Crosby and MyTV New England are excited to announce the premiere of the new “Debra Crosby’s Talent Quest TV Show” starting this October.
Film and TV Development Executive Christopher Murphy of MyTV New England says, “Talented host Debra Crosby and musical genius MAMADOU are the most down-to-earth, passionate and dedicated producers you could ever meet. I’ve enjoyed getting to know them while in development of their show and everyone at MyTV New England is excited about our collaboration. I grew up watching TV in the Boston area, so I remember all the local shows like Community Auditons which was hosted by Dave Maynard (local TV trivia – Dave is Debra Crosby’s dad). As Debra likes to say, “we’re continuing a New England tradition” by bringing her TV show to a wide TV audience throughout New England. I’d like to invite everyone to tune into the commercial broadcast premiere of Debra Crosby’s Talent Quest TV Show on MyTV New England, Sunday Oct. 3rd at 11am.”
Crosby herself is elated at the news. “’We are very much looking forward to our creative partnership with MyTV New England. Chris Murphy of MyTV has been a real champion of our cause. I loved finding out that he had fond memories of watching my dad’s show for years on Sunday mornings with his grandparents. He is totally behind this idea of carrying on a New England tradition.”
The show is being brought to the MyTV New England network through the new distribution program. The show will feature talent from around New England in a variety of performance arts, including singing, dancing, acting, comedy, and music. Contestants perform in front of a live audience at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston, where they are judged by a rotating panel of celebrity judges. Crosby hosts the show, and is backed by a live band.
Band leader and long time friend of Crosby, MAMADOU, likewise is pleased; “It’s a wonderful thing because we’ve made progress little by little all along, we’ve been doing that show without any help. We moved from a little cable show, and I’ve seen the hard work, the progress little by little. It’s the kind of show that features everybody, all kinds of talent. We’ve tried to have everyone come out and express themselves. No matter what your talent is, you can come and express yourself.”
