Press release launch party


Kayona Ebony Brown tees up TV series set in DC

Award winning DC filmmaker produces novellas set in Nation’s Capitol in preparation for TV series

WASHINGTON, DC, September 12, 2018 Producing a great TV show takes a lot. So DC filmmaker, Kayona Ebony Brown, is taking a rather unique approach by starting with episodic novellas (little books), and she’s inviting you to join her as she launches this phase of her Of Music and Men project at Busboys and Poets, Thursday, September 13.

Of Music and Men was introduced to the world in 2016 through its award-winning short film. But as it sets out to become a successful half-hour scripted television series, Kayona invites you to join her as she unveils Of Music and Men in its novella form, through which you can experience the story in print, digital, and audio formats.

OM&M is a multimedia franchise that tells the story of a single, young entrepreneur struggling to build an independent record label, while navigating the country’s worst city for bachelorettes and the most unlikely place for music success: Washington, DC.


This is your chance to meet the filmmaker/author, plus get your copy of episode one, Thinking of a Master Plan, autographed, along with photos!

Enjoy music by DC’s own, DJ Geena Marie, win prizes, celebrate how far things have come in the process, and learn about the past, present, and future of this dynamic project, while helping it move closer to the next goal!

The party is free, just RSVP here. Support is encouraged, and if you can’t attend, but still want to still get involved with OM&M, you can make sure your name is associated with the project by visiting
