Hometown Hero Flora L. Jones stars in Dramatic Pilot TV Series The 10th
Toledo, Ohio—"The 10th" created by Barika L.W. Pace and directed by Jerry J. Hayes has been well received this year by audiences and perspective networks. With three sold out crowds in Royal Oak and Auburn Hills, MI as well as a recent screening at the prestigious Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH the dramatic series is now ready to premiere in Toledo (Maumee), OH.
The 10th is a coming of age story of four African American families who leave their working class up bringing in Detroit to pursue the American dream in posh Birmingham, Michigan. Based on W.E.B. Dubois, The Talented 10th, we dive into the lives of four exceptional men, Dre, Ronald, Marcus, and David into a world of sex, lies, and scandals.
The 10th was filmed across Michigan however three of the lead actors have Ohio connections. Flora L. Jones is a hometown hero who plays the lead role of power-attorney Sharon Dupree. Her son in the film Bello Pizzimenti (Cam Dupree) before recently moving to New York to pursue acting once was in the theatrical department for Cedar Point in particular being involved in Halloween Weekend at the theme park. David H. Solomon who plays the lead role of former professional basketball player (David Landon) also has Ohio connections in being born in Cleveland. Actor Jerome Crawford (Dre Cash) who plays Flora's (Sharon Dupree) spouse shared:
"The day I opened my email to view the script for The 10th, I felt that this was a special project. This feeling was solidified into fact when I met everyone involved. I'm honored to participate in bringing the vision to life, and excited for the world to see the extraordinary fruits of our collective labor."
