For more than seven years, Builders Care has been helping Northeast Florida families and low income, disabled and elderly people who are facing hardships rebuild their homes. The nonprofit arm of the Northeast Florida Builders Association has worked with Jacksonville-based DeepLight Entertainment to produce marketing materials and original programming chronicling the efforts of the organization and the message has reached Northeast Florida homes.
Soon, they’ll be sharing it with millions more.
DeepLight Entertainment is launching a new home makeover show, “Building a Difference,” featuring the work of Builders Care in it’s first volume, which will be available to 92 million U.S. households and a worldwide audience via the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). The faith-based network, according to its Web site, is broadcast on every continent through more than 12,000 cable affiliates.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to take the work of Builders Care and show the world what they do,” said Mick Richards, Executive Producer/Director, DeepLight Entertainment. “The series began as a tool to bring awareness (of Builders Care’s mission) to the city of Jacksonville.”
Richards has a mixture of positive emotions about the deal and its potential. “It’s very humbling, yet exciting,” he said. “A show like this with a large audience gives the opportunity for Builders Care and other organizations to showcase the good work they’re doing in their own communities.”
Richards, along with Chris Simons, project leader for Builders Care, recently wrapped up filming on a new intro and outro piece for each episode in anticipation of the debut. “Building a Difference,” debuts worldwide Feb. 10 on TBN.
