“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.’ And if you would like to see evidence of a one of a kind talk show, ask to view the 103 episodes of “The Maxine Tulloch Show.”
“Quiet on the set, camera, lights, action,” echoes as make-up artist and stylist fall backstage behind marked territory. Music cues, five… four… three… two…. one. Maxine makes one final adjustment before announcing, “Welcome to the Maxine Tulloch Show.”
As Oprah Winfrey sets to bow out of the talk show genre, to focus on the development of her forthcoming cable channel, OWN, due to premier in January 2011, more doors are opening for rising starts such as Maxine Tulloch. It has been three years since the Maxine Tulloch Show (MTS) made its debut on COMCAST Cable in South Florida; reaching over 1.5 million household subscribers. Since March 2009 MTS has been the anchor talk show for FlowTV Channel 100 in Jamaica. (Sited from IslandFuse Magazine online)
Maxine Tulloch Show fall series premiered on Flow Cable TV, channel 100 in Jamaica on Monday, September 20, at 6:30pm. The new season of MTS, with a jazzier format and episodes filmed in Jamaica, aims to bring audiences closer to the Caribbean. “Fun and excitement” Maxine says, is a criteria for the new season, “it’s all inclusive of and for the Diaspora.”
MTS is a unique and diverse television program, the only show of its kind in the US and Jamaica. The program delivers informative, entertaining, fast paced Caribbean-American lifestyle shows that educate and entertain the viewers while showcasing highlights of their culture and other cultures around the world. Topics ranging from social and domestic issues, lifestyle, business, fashion, entertainment, to strategic thinking shows, and events are what they do best. What makes them different from other shows in their genre is their deliberate intention to create high quality exclusive production that is both informative, as it is entertaining.
Business associates, community members and fellow media partners affectionately call Maxine the South Florida Oprah, Jamaican Oprah and Caribbean Oprah. Conceptually it was modeled after the Oprah Winfrey Show without the live audience, with future plans for a live audience. However, Maxine continues to articulate that “if you can’t get on the Oprah Show, you can get on the Maxine Tulloch Show,” carving her niche and branding the program.
