The Harlem-born R&B singer, and the CEO of Untouchable J Productions, JoJo Ryder, have entered into a strategic partnership to create content for television that includes a documentary featuring never-before-seen footage of Keith’s career from the 80’s and 90’s to present day.  TM Mann Entertainment saw the formidable charge these two could bring, and brought them together.

“I feel really good about how my company and UJP are working together,” Sweat said today.  “I am aware of JoJo’s success, and his understanding of the demographic of the 18-34 age group.  I can’t wait for everyone to see the content that we create, baby.”

Loyal Studios in Burbank, CA, was used for the initial interviews.  “Having these two great talents collaborating in our studios is amazing,” said Bob Bekian, CEO of Loyal Studios.  “Keith Sweat has an incredible body of work, and JoJo Ryder is one the hottest television and film producers in Hollywood right now.”

Ryder has multiple projects in process as well as television and development deals that several major studios are involved in.

“It’s a thrill to be working with a living legend of Keith’s caliber,” Jojo said. “There are so many layers to Keith that viewers will find fascinating when the content comes out.”

It seems as if the pairing of UJT and Keith Sweat is truly an ‘untouchable’ partnership.
Keith Sweat has a book entitled “Make It Last Forever” coming out February 14th, 2013.

Loyal Studios Co-Producing Pilot for “Loiters Squad” with Odd Future

OFWGKTA

If you know what “OFWGKTA” stands for, you either know an avid texter, or you live for the thrill of soul-pumping beats.  The lengthy acronym belongs to the eclectic, alternative Hip Hop group called, “Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All” from Los Angeles.  Their sound joins the ranks of groups defining the music of a generation.

Lead by Tyler: The Creator, the group took off in 2007, but it’s not just one band.  Odd Future is compiled of different subgroups like “The Jet Age of Tomorrow,” and “MellowHype.”  Odd Future shows off the talents of ten eclectic artists from Los Angeles, including Syd the Kyd, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Left Brain, Jasper Loc, Mike G, and Matt Martian.  The group’s success grew exponentially over the last five years with their internet fan base spilling over into crowded venues like London’s “The Drop,” Southern California’s “The House of Blues,” and the annual master-bands weekend, Coachella.

OFWGKTA lands this year in the cities of London, Birmingham, Glasgow, and Manchester for their 2012 tour.  Tickets pre-sold-out last year.
