Back Home with Lisa Smith-Putnam
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 17, 2009
"Back Home with Lisa Smith-Putnam" is the first and only variety show recorded in Seattle and aired in the Pacific Northwest to boast A-List talent. Like nothing the area has ever seen, the show will be recorded in front of a live studio audience at the historic King Cat Theater (corner of 6th and Blanchard - 2130 6th Avenue, Seattle), and will revisit the genius and down-to-earth nature of the Merv Griffin, Dinah Shore and Carol Burnett Shows.
"Back Home with Lisa Smith-Putnam" will premiere in 2010. It will air on KING 5 Saturday/Sunday at 2:00 a.m. just following "Saturday Night Live" and "Almost Live," and will replay the following Friday on KONG 6 at 10:00 a.m.
The show will include entertainment and appearances from A-list celebrities, and feature local talent, lifestyle segments and Northwest spotlights, all backed by music director Tina Lombard-Harris.
Executive producer and host Lisa Smith-Putnam is Seattle's best kept secret. An entertainment and media mogul whose career in media spans more than 20 years in both music and television, and a musician at heart, Lisa Smith-Putnam returns to her native Seattle bearing this gift of live entertainment.
Lisa Smith-Putnam arrived home as CEO of Integy Entertainment and executive produced several fabulous classic smooth jazz albums. She was a consultant for the Experience Music Project and brought legendary artists such as Quincy Jones and Dr. Dre, to perform on behalf of the EMP. The success of these contributions led to further collaboration with locally celebrated entrepreneur and philanthropist Paul Allen to create and executive produce the museum's "We're going to Rock" album that mimicked the world class museum's rock exhibit.
She then went on to head Your Music Network, an outlet for independent artists that was a fusion of MTV & VH1 with a marketplace to aid indie music sales - Smith-Putnam ran the network for two years as president and CEO. Under her guidance, Your Music Network was voted "one of the new shows to watch!" by TV Guide.
Lisa Smith-Putnam's dynamic personality, positive outlook and vocal talent will leap from the stage and screen, and capture the attention of both audience and industry. She is a master at interviewing and aims to make those in her presence feel like they are, or could be, something special.
"I treat people the way I want to be treated and this show will be a positive, supportive and fun place for artists to come," explains Lisa. "The show is also meant to be an experience for all those watching."
Smith-Putnam started her career in Los Angeles as a production coordinator for "Entertainment Tonight" and "Woman to Woman." From there she moved to music at Bernie Grudman Mastering and then became general manager at TNT Records and Management, where she was instrumental in the worldwide success of Digital Underground and later rap legend Tupac Shakur. She has also been COO of Amaru Entertainment.
