ROLE MODEL TV
As parents, we’re committed to our kids. We volunteer for the PTA, the soccer team, and Sunday school. We get involved with afterschool programs, town safety patrols, and teenage party planning. Some of us have even moved to the suburbs, taking on a change of job, a longer commute, and more debt.
What’s been missing is a media network as committed as we are to our family’s physical, intellectual, and emotional needs.
Introducing RoleModel.TV, the next-generation network for next-generation families.
RoleModel.TV uses the latest virtual meeting technology (along the lines of Zoom) to create an intimate place where families meet with today’s most trusted educators, scientists, thinkers, counselors and doers. Real people like Michelle Obama, Tom Chapin and others that you may not have heard of but have so much to offer.
Think of our hosts as the trusted teachers you had when you were in school and that you pray your kids have now.
Programming To Look Up To
RoleModel.TV is a 24 hour a day digital channel with programming that supports the hopes, dreams, and realities of family life.
Our shows are designed to actually help families communicate and live better (as opposed to most programming, which is designed to segment us from each other so that we zone out and shop).
Our hosts and writers have years of experience in both education and entertainment. They get laughs with punchlines, not punches. Their shows are for participating, not watching.
What programs would make real kids run home from school to watch? What programs address what families are really talking about? When teenagers disappear into their rooms at night, what kind of programming will lure them back out into the living room?
These are the questions that we ask ourselves when we schedule RoleModel.TV.
Talk shows for tweens, teens, and adults stream live 24-hours a day. Here's how it works by age group:
Kids 6-8 - On Demand only. We mentor and support both parents and kids with activity shows about hobbies and school participation. From city walks to singing to setting up scrapbooks, RoleModel.TV helps families plan – and execute – activities with their children. Programming includes craft and do-it-yourself shows that may now be broadcast on HGTV, DIY, and other networks.
Kids 9-11 - On Demand only. </span> Kids this age are in the <span style="font-style: italic;">“I wanna do that!”</span> zone. So we have participatory shows that pique kids’ curiosity with programs about real-life hobbies and careers. We start off with Home Made Horror (where kids submit home videos), Sports Beast with Judy Kamilhor (about the focus and dedication needed to excel in sports), ‘Net Me (computers and the internet), and finish with Burnin’ ’Roni with John Berninzoni (cooking).
Tweens - On Demand and live afterschool and weekends. Talk shows and inspirational biographies introduce successful people, real-life careers, and the impact of both good and bad choices. Plus Citizen, a show about community activism, volunteering, running an afterschool club, and other ways to make a difference.
Teens - On Demand and live during late evening and weekend nights. More talk and inspiration from real life role models, both good and bad: Pop Up, where teen stars and musicians talk about their personal challenges and triumphs. And judgement-free call-in talk shows that bring experience and hope to issues like divorce, dating, sex, alcohol, drugs, society, and the future.
Families Together - On Demand and live during evening and prime time hours. Assembly (our “evening news”) puts world events into perspective for kids. Ingenuity, a science game show that the whole family can watch – and play along with – together. And (Blank) With Your Family, which helps families do the things they do: travel, school, volunteering, pet care, cheerleading, etc.
In prime time, aspirational shows like Hall of Fame and Made in America (now showing on the Travel Channel) that present scientists, salesmen, and others who’ve worked hard (as opposed to hyped hard) to get where they are.
Parents - One Demand and live during mornings and late night hours. Call-in shows on current events, sex, safety, parenting skills, and whatever else is on parents’ minds. And they’re not just for mommies – For Fathers Only will take on, and take care of, the men in the family.
As you can see, we take your family's physical, intellectual, and emotional life seriously. So seriously that we make this promise: If it doesn’t contribute to your life in some way, it won't be on RoleModel.TV.
