Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 3/3/22 – On February 24th REVOLT announced the launch of its headquarters and studio business, RBN Studios. The studio is in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, which will now make REVOLT a full-service production operation. RBN’s mission is to create original content that will resonate with the Black community.
According to Detavio Samuels (REVOLT’s CEO), “At RBN Studios, we will leave no stone unturned and shine a light in the darkest of corners to find the truth through a Black diasporic lens. REVOLT has always strived to unveil critical information and viewpoints for ourselves and the world, so we chose a business model that enables us to scale impact beyond our own distribution platform.”
REVOLT will also be relaunching REVOLT Black News Weekly, which will be hosted by Emmy nominated journalist Neima Abdulahi. The series will be centered around untapped, underreported, and misconceived stories relevant to Black culture and communities.
