DeVon Franklin, CEO Tammy Williams and More to Appear on Our World
In this weekend’s all new episode of Our World With Black Enterprise, host Paul Brunson sits down with Columbia Pictures executive DeVon Franklin to discuss his remake of the classic musical, Annie, that’s set to hit theaters December 19th.
In a one-on-one interview, Franklin details his journey from being an intern under Will Smith’s production company to becoming one of Hollywood’s most bankable producers. In addition to giving viewers an inside view of Franklin’s career, Our World profiles founder and CEO of Open Rivers Pictures, Tammy Williams, to discuss her transition from a 9-to-5 job to starting her own production company that creates positive faith-based and educational programming.

Finally, Our World spotlights a powerful video done by 19-year-old Princeton University sophomore, Alex Ford, who discusses his views on the recent protests that are taking place nationwide in reaction to the latest incidents of police brutality.
