On The Rise: Fawn Stone Is On Her Way To The Top
Fawn Stone (#Letmetellyou) is a gorgeous and super talented lady who doesn’t like to get caught up in drama. Well, with the exception of on the screen drama. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Fawn returned to her home city Los Angeles after graduating from Howard University in Washington, DC to pursue a career in acting and as a television correspondent. Most likely, Fawn can be found strutting her stuff in her 3-inch heels, even in a bowling alley. She says, “Heels are more comfortable.”
Some would say she is a diva, and she may have diva tendencies, but Fawn is one of the most kind-hearted people you will ever meet. She continues to get her feet wet in the entertainment and media business and enjoys every moment of it. In her spare time, Fawn enjoys volunteering and giving back to inner city and incarcerated youth.
On The Rise is a one-hour reality series that will be depicted in a casual setting. It centers on the rather undiscovered lives of three phenomenal women. The show chronicles the lives of three friends – Misee, Fawn and Lakesha – and the challenges they face as they balance successful careers and living the single life. While a production crew follows their everyday activities, the three women show the audience that you can be professionally driven without losing your true self.
About the Creator and Producer: BJ Rouse
One The Rise is down-to-earth, inspirational, and fun. The foundation of the show is anchored on the three friends’ dual lives. Each episode tracks each of them either hustling for their careers and/or playing equally hard, just for fun. We may find Misee and her sidekick and dental assistant, Bianca, up all night trying to meet a deadline for delivering her custom mouth-guards, Lakesha locked in her cave working on a script or Fawn working with her acting coach or auditioning for the next role. On the flip side, we may find the ladies hanging out at the beach, in the club, working out, celebrity & red carpet events or at home relaxing with family and friends.
Independent filmmaker, BJ Rouse, created the show. She is who is a former recipient of the Kodak and the Panavision New Filmmakers Grant as well as the prestigious Guy Hanks and Marvin Miller Screenwriting Program a.k.a. the Cosby Program sponsored by Dr. and Mrs. Bill Cosby at the University of Southern California. Besides producing On The Rise, Rouse’s production company, Rouse House Entertainment, is currently producing the feature documentary film, More Than Skin Deep and has a slate full of projects and musical artists that will launch in 2014.
