“The Spirited Actor” – The Search For Africa’s Next Hollywood Star

"The Spirited Actor" – The Search For Africa’s Next Hollywood Star

The search for the next Hollywood star is on, and it starts in Motherland-Africa. The new television reality show, ‘Search for Africa’s Next Hollywood Star’, according to its organisers, is to recruit acting talent in West Africa for Hollywood. Performers will be selected from Ghana and Nigeria. The TV show is organised by The Latin Dance Company, Nigeria, and their Ghanaian collaborators, Davis Media and Paradise Entertainment. Acting coach, Tracey Moore, and film producer and director, Samad Davis, both from the USA, will work closely with the contestants. The competition will see five Nigerians and five Ghanaians vie for the star prize, which includes a one year contract with a Hollywood agent and an opportunity to star alongside African American actor, Morris Chestnut, in a movie project by Davis.
