Dr. Keith Nurse, chair of Caribbean Tales Worldwide Distribution, this week announced the launch of a groundbreaking region-wide broadcasting initiative to screen Caribbean content on local television stations. The project was created and brokered by Caribbean Tales in partnership with the Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU), under the leadership of its secretary general, Patrick Cozier. The first project of the initiative - called Caribbean Tales Movie Nights will debut on CNMG in Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday. Participating stations include TV6 in Trinidad, CBC in Barbados, and TVJ in Jamaica, with other regional stations expected to sign on in the coming weeks. Nurse said, "This deal with CBU represents a paradigm shift in relations between Caribbean broadcasters and content producers, in that it proposes, for the first time, a potentially viable model for the sustainable economic development of the regional audiovisual and broadcasting industries. " Cozier added, "We are delighted to put this new arrangement in place as it will bring important local and regional works directly into easy access of Caribbean audiences, as well as give necessary exposure to emerging creative talent."
