Kingston, Jamaica – (Observer jamaica) – House Out of Order, a half-hour sitcom, is scheduled to make its premiere this Sunday, January 23, at 8:00 pm local time on National Black Television Media (NBTV), an American cable channel found on channel 156 on Flow.
The series was created by Baron Jay Littleton Jr and Christopher Moore. It comprises a Caribbean ensemble of Jamaicans and Trinidadians.
Littleton Jr, an American, explained how the idea for House Out of Order came about.
“I came up with the idea by having a brainstorm phone conversation with my co-creator Christopher Moore during the pandemic. I took experiences from my personal life and of others that I know directly and indirectly and mixed it up in a bowl and came up with House Out of Order,” Littleton Jr told the Jamaica Observer.
“House Out of Order was written for an American black cast. Bentley Kyle Evans (director) and Trenten Gumbs (executive director) suggested to me what about a Caribbean cast for the sitcom. I was 100 per cent in agreement. It’s a niche market that is underserved and Caribbean people need to see themselves on television playing roles that are not stereotype,” he continued.
The first season comprises 10 episodes.
“The process from idea to filming was about nine months. It could have been sooner but Harvest Studios and director Bentley Kyle Evans’s schedule was full and once an opening became available, I was ready to execute. The first season will be 10 episodes and our goal is to do 100 episodes and take this into syndication,” said Littleton Jr.
