News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Mon. Nov. 18, 2013: Jamaican national, Maxine Tulloch, brought her ‘Caribbean Wives Of South Florida’ pilot to New York City Friday night to rave reviews.
The concept, a Caribbean American take on the Real Housewife of New York, Miami, Atlanta, LA, et al series from Bravo, features real Caribbean women in South Florida dealing with life issues while doing a juggling act of blending into the American culture and holding on to their national identity.
The cast includes Jamaicans: Terryann Ramirez, a radiation therapist, Geneva Gordon, a boutique owner, Kendra Zoe Parker, a photographer and Cindia Azize, a realtor.
Also on the show are Alexandra Davis, a British-born migrant with Jamaican roots who is the Vice Mayor of Miramar, Selines Silverio, an aerobic instructor of Dominican descent; Bridgette Cadet Young, who is Haitian descent and is a police detective on the Miami-Dade Police Force; Haitian-born publisher, Carmel Moise and Grenada national, Dale Defreitas.
The show follows the women interacting at different levels, including working out, supporting one at a marathon in Key West; at a dinner party and in a boutique setting while also dealing with real life issues of death, loss, suicide and strength through adversity. The New York premier took place at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College in Manhattan.
Tulloch told the audience that she is seeking a deal with a national television channel that will put the show on the map and put the spotlight on Caribbean nationals in the United States.
