The weekly entertainment and lifestyle programme Pree Dis which airs on FLOW TV Channel 100, continues to grow in its fourth year. It recently celebrated its 200th episode which was shot at the Azul Sensatori Jamaica resort in Negril.
Pree Dis currently airs outside of Jamaica in more than 15 Caribbean territories courtesy of broadcast partner Caribvision CMC.It also airs in Canada via CEEN TV on Rogers Cable and Bell Fiber Cable; as well as in New York on Cablevision and Optimum Cable.
"Since we began airing outside of Jamaica, we have developed a strong fan base especially within the Jamaican diaspora.It's not an easy task putting out a quality show each week with limited resources, but we have been able to achieve a lot thanks to our hardworking team, a great host, and our committed sponsors who have been with us," executive producer Kevin Jackson explained.
Known for its weekly coverage of events, parties and launches, as well as celebrity interviews, video countdown, e-news from the Caribbean, lifestyle and food features as well as video premieres and Caribbean content, Pree Dis premiered in October 2010.
Among its past presenters are Casmar James and Alex 'Alca' Morrison. Joel 'Kruddy' Harrison who was the first presenter in 2010, returned as presenter in July 2012. Harrison has been prominently featured in advertising campaigns for telecommunications company LIME in recent months.
Jackson outlined plans for further expansion of the show overseas.
"We are in discussions to have the show aired in the UK. We also have a correspondent in the UK who has been providing a lot of content from that region. There's a lot going on in the UK that we want to showcase to viewers here in Jamaica, the Caribbean and in North America. We are also looking at Africa in the coming year," he said.
Pree Dis airs in Jamaica on FLOW TV Channel 100 Saturday at 9 p.m. with repeats Mondays at 6 p.m. and Thursdays at 9:30 p.m.
