About Groove Parlor and PH Factor Productions
Groove Parlor, an urban entertainment program featuring R&B, hip-hop and acid jazz, showcases music videos and interviews by established and emerging artists, as well as spotlights on local acts and DJs. The one-hour program airs four times monthly on TCI Chicago Cable channels 19 and 25 with a potential reach of 1.2 million households. Aimed at urban viewers ages 18-34, Groove Parlor also covers major industry events, including the 2001 Source Awards and the 2001 Grammy Awards’ Hidden Beach afterparty.
Groove Parlor’s creator and producer is Paula J. Harris, whose accolades include the top prize in the 1993 Sony Innovator Awards’ “Documentary” category. Her work has also been featured in numerous festivals and screenings. Most recently, Harris’ documentary What Ever Happened to the Dream? (a look at the Civil Rights Movement from the hip-hop generation’s viewpoint) was featured at Chicago’s DuSable Museum of African-American History during Black History Month.
Harris has also produced and developed children’s programming and documentary specials for WPWR-TV50 (Chicago’s UPN affiliate), including the Emmy-nominated series The Power to Make a Difference (hosted by WGCI-FM midday personality Jeanne Sparrow). In Spring 2001, she produced a public service announcement for RCA recording artist Tyrese’s 2000 Watts Foundation, which aired in HMV stores throughout the U.S., U.K and Canada. Harris is currently in pre-production with a third documentary, which will focus on the history of house music.
