Tracey Edmonds Talks About Being a Black Producer


Coming up this week on Lifetime is the Original Movie, With This Ring, starring Regina Hall, Jill Scott, and Eve with Tracey Edmonds, Sheila Ducksworth (Soul Food) and Gabrielle Union (Being Mary Jane) serving as executive producers.

For Edmonds, who is CEO and President of Edmonds Entertainment and CEO and President of Alright TV, this serves as one of many projects she’s currently involved in. For nearly 20 years, the award-winning Los Angeles native has worn many hats in the entertainment industry. From producing the movie Soul Food and the subsequent series on Showtime to releasing Jumping The Broom as COO and President of Our Stories Films, Edmonds continues to thrive in an industry where there are few Black producers. Among her earlier projects was executive producing the reality show College Hill, the first African American reality program on BET and its spinoff College Hill Interns.

Edmonds recently joined the syndicated entertainment program EXTRA as a co-host with Mario Lopez and Charissa Thompson and currently executive produces and co-stars in Deion’s Family Playbook, the reality show featuring NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders and his family, which airs on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
