For Chrishaunda Lee Perez, there is little challenge with serving as a complex storyteller because she has experienced life on a broad spectrum, and that which she does not know first-hand, the mélange of people she has engaged throughout her life journey compels her to tell those stories exactly through the lenses of those who have lived them.
Landing her start in entertainment in front of camera hired as a correspondent on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and later by Entertainment Tonight, Ms. Perez today is a storyteller in a range of ways- She’s an author of both novel and memoir, essayist, a journalist, a screenwriter, a producer, and speaker. Regardless of the manner, there is one common theme that pushes her pen forward and moves her to spoken word: Empathy.
“The only way we will be able to fully acknowledge the worth in one another, value our connection as human beings, is to gain understanding about where we have all come from and where we are going. Storytelling is the single most powerful tool to facilitate these gifts”.
In 2016, Chrishaunda Lee established an imprint, Many Women Productions, that focuses on serving as a creative think tank and a deliverer of actualized concepts, providing a straightforward method for networks and streaming services to take in the vision of an idea for a film or show for development purposes, or to simply license and distribute a project that has been fully executed. From Dramas, Romantic Comedies, Adaptations, Biopics, Dramadies to Science Fiction, Many Women intends to be a top choice for a sought-out partnership to distribute stories involving women in an integral way from every race and ethnicity, every lifestyle, every walk of life.
