About "School Pride":
From executive producers Cheryl Hines ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") and Denise Cramsey ("Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and "True Beauty"), "School Pride" is a proactive, alternative series that tells the stories of communities coming together to renovate their aging and broken public schools. While transforming the school, the community also restores its sense of value and school pride.
The cameras follow students, teachers, parents and community members as they roll up their sleeves and rebuild their own schools, concluding with the unveiling of a brand-new, completely transformed school. They are motivated by a quartet of community organizers and personalities - SWAT Commander Tom Stroup; interior designer Susie Castillo ("House of Payne"); comedian and former substitute teacher Kym Whitley ("'Til Death"); and journalist Jacob Soboroff ("AMC News"). Together, the team of experts will lead the community through the makeover process.
The schools and communities highlighted in the series include Enterprise Middle School in Compton, California; Lanier Elementary School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Kingston Springs Elementary in Nashville, Tennessee; Communication and Media Arts School in Detroit, Michigan; Needles High School in Needles, California; Hollenbeck Middle School in Los Angeles, California; and Los Angeles Center for Enrichment Studies in Los Angeles, California.
"School Pride" is produced by Horizon Alternative Television.
