TBN's JCTV Signs Inspired Ambition, 1 2-Episode TV Deal New Christian Music Reality Series Shares the Good, the Bad, and the Heartbreaking Stories of Up and Coming Musicians
2-6-08 (LOS ANGELES) -- Saylors Brothers Productions has hooked up with JCTV to air twelve episodes of an innovative new reality TV series. Each episode chronicles the life of up-and-coming contemporary Christian music artist Erica Lane. Inspired Ambition premičres on JCTV TBNšs network for young, hip, and hooked-on-high-speed-internet viewers. The show airs 2:00 PM on Saturday, February 23, 2008.
"Anyone who dreams of doing something big can live it out with me, the good, the bad, the heartbreaking moments, the whole adventure, says Lane. The idea of inspiring others through this experience is thrilling, and it gives me even more of a reason to press on...no matter what."
Kenny and Kyle Saylors creation, Inspired Ambition highlights both the failures and victories along the way as Lane pursues her dream of becoming a key player in the Christian music world.
Inspired Ambition is also a platform from which other well-known Christian music artists can share their stories, and their faith, recounting their bumpy road to success in the music business. Everlife, Casting Pearls, Michael Tait of DC Talk, Family Force 5, and John Schlitt of Petra are a few of the artists who will tell their tales of success in the series.
Showcasing her musical development as well as her faith, the third episode of Inspired Ambition documents one of Lanes on-the-road performances at the Lifelight Festival in Sioux Falls, SD. She competed against four other bands for a national record deal...but youšll have to tune in to find out whether or not she was victorious!
Named one of the top five winners of the Artist Ovation Competition, Lane's most comprehensive release to date is Saved Tonight, an uplifting CD of Lanešs original songs, as well as traditional Christmas music. The title cut was developed into a music video that became part of JCTVšs holiday season music rotation.
