Life & Grind: Duval
A brand new cable television series that will air bi-weekly on CW17 Jacksonville in Jacksonville and surrounding areas from southeast Georgia to northcentral Florida. Life & Grind, created and produced by Jacksonville-based hip hop artist and music producer Dez Nado, highlights independent artists, entertainers, and entertainment entrepreneurs making impacts in the community in support of the greater local arts community. What makes the show distinctly unique and refreshingly entertaining is its signature first-hand glimpses into the lives and "grinds" of local entertainers and media as they pursue their dreams.
Entering its 4th season, the show's basis is a select cast of 8 to 10 entertainers and entertainment entrepreneurs who are actively engaged in the pursuit of their dreams. Executive producer Dez Nado recently signed an 8-episode deal to bring the show's upcoming 4th season to the CW Network from the smaller Bounce-Jacksonville network that the first 3 seasons aired on. This move allows for greater visibility of the Life & Grind TV series, which will now be viewable via all cable providers to approximately 80,000 cable TV viewers each airing, in addition to approximately 17,500 viewers who enjoy the Atlanta version of the show Life & Grind: ATL, which premiered on Atlanta's DeKalb-Comcast 25 earlier this year.
The official premiere party for Life & Grind: Duval - Season 4 was held at Candid Poetry Studios in Jacksonville, where supporters, media, and others interested in viewing the show with the cast or getting involved with the buzzing series watched while the show actually taped footage for the current season.
