Executive Producer of a new and relevant TV Show entitled “Family Still Matters”. Alander Pulliam and Mark Banks takes the premise from the late ABC TV Show, “Family Matters” but provides an urban spin highlighting current relevant issues centered on a middle-class family. Alander Pulliam and Mark Banks felt that the concept of that show is needed in today’s TV world. While “Family Still Matters” takes from the concept of an urban middle-class family the show isn’t built directly from the original show. Look forward to meeting new characters to love and to tolerate in Producer/Writer Alander Pulliams, “Family Still Matters”.
“Family Still Matters” is a show that will help create a reason for families to come together.
Today, families now have no interest in watching shows that bring the family together, kids often watch one program and adults watch another but families are not actually sitting down and watching TV together. Alander Pulliam shared “I want to bring a TV show of the past and help center the future of television around it again. I may be young and I may be ahead of myself but I know that with a TV program such as this family’s will be more mended, more settled, and more responsible. “Family Still Matters” is about a family that is faced with many of today’s problems such as, ‘bills, layoffs, finding employment, the inability to afford family necessities, on the edge of losing everything, and many more of today’s middle-class family crisis.’ The goal of “Family Still Matters” is to help bring back the old remedies along with today’s generation, help guide, teach and direct and create a better-thinking process that will help individuals faced with today’s hardships and family issues.”
“Family Still Matters” is a mixture of Family Matters and The Cosby Show in which was the main goal for Alander Pulliam, ultimately to bring back the old TV programs that had substance and morals and just not capitalizing and handicapping consumers and viewers mind and thought process. Pulliam explains,
“What you will see when you watch this TV show is going to really make you think and understand what a real family is and also see the strong and weak parts that will help many of today’s families overcome obstacles and hurdles that they haven’t seen a way out of or through. Nothing against other TV shows and their producers but if you take away from the substance of anything it will give you another outlook and if you present something new to a set of new faces it often seems real, and that’s what TV shows are doing today; their painting a bad picture to a new set of eyes. For those in the newer generations, that didn’t get a chance to grow up on shows such as the Cosby show, Family Matters, Full House, Sanford, and Son; you have missed out on real TV and real family time. That’s why we are bringing it back with a whole new flavor but with the same ingredient’s.”
