1. What inspired the creation of Fight for the Family?

Hearing a sermon my pastor preached with the same title inspired me to create the series.

2. I like the idea of a brother and sister and their families being the center of the show. Do the characters experiences any tensions when it comes to their different family ties?

There is a lot of family tension in the show.

James Guillory, played by Carlton Skinner, and his wife Aisha Guillory, played by Aisha Jordan, are going through a battle because she wants to leave her husband and two beautiful daughters to move to London because of her job.

Nico Allen, played by Michael Fontenot, and Toi Allen, played by Candace Ames, are expecting a child. Toi wants to abort because the timing, as she puts it, "is terrible."

3. How are you distributing the show locally and nationally?

The show is currently airing on digital channel 15.1 in Houston and streamed at Beginning in February, it will air on Comcast, Direct TV, Dish Network, and Roku. Check your local listings.

What I like most about working on this project is that I have the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and dedicated actors in Houston.

Thanks, Sherel!
