Lisa Cannon Launches Featured Entertainment Show With SpaceTo
Irish TV star Lisa Cannon is set to launch her brand new entertainment show Spotlight this week in association with SpaceTo and DMG Media.
The beloved entertainment presenter will speak to some of the biggest names in cinema and cover the latest in entertainment, fashion and beauty.
Broadcast from inside the beautiful 150-year-old Gaiety Theater, Lisa brought in some prominent guests from her years of reporting to Hollywood, with episode one starring none other than Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci.
The cast will join Lisa virtually to discuss their new movie Supernova, while follow-up episodes will see Lisa talking to famous faces like Vince Vaughan, Catt Sadler and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to name a few.
Talk to Extra.ie Ahead of the show’s start this Friday, Lisa Cannon said, “I’ve been working in film for so long now and always said back then that I wanted to have a really cool platform to be able to do it. “
Thanks to its collection of contacts established over the years working with Box Office, Ireland AM and Xposé, and SpaceTo from DMG Studio, this platform has become a reality.
“Spotlight is a very exciting personal project for me, and I’m thrilled to be teaming up with DMG Media,” Lisa said.
“Having been in the entertainment business for the past 20 years, it was a beautiful synergy of lifestyle, wellness, entertainment and filmmaking. It made sense, culminating with DMG, that we put together a program that really suited all bills. ‘
Spotlight, which will be available to stream via social media, will also see Lisa chatting with American author, podcast host and empowerment coach Gina DeVee on all things lifestyle and wellness.
Access Hollywood stylist Sam Saboura for all the latest fashion trends, while box office producer Gordon Hayden will sit down with Lisa to talk about the movie.
Regarding the decision to broadcast Spotlight via social media, Lisa said, “We all look at our phones now, it all depends on what we can see on social media. What Spotlight does is bring new and interesting content to see.
“There are tons of offers and it’s all for Instagram. Everything is online with interviews and small segments. We quickly get to the heart of it all and don’t tell you nonsense.
The digital series will be sponsored by GLAMDOLL and Dresses.ie, to help deliver the latest in Irish fashion and beauty.
Lisa said Extra.ie: “We’ve been very lucky with the guests we’ve had, and obviously I’ve had a great relationship with GLAMDOLL, which has been an incredible emerging brand.
“We have a long-standing relationship and with their tagline ‘Bringing Hollywood Home’ it made sense that they wanted to continue to merge into entertainment, beauty, fashion, theater, film and lifestyle.
“Now we also have Dresses.ie on board, which means we can incorporate a bit of Irish fashion. Of course, since we’ve been in lockdown there’s nowhere to go and nothing to do … as things start to open up.
Spotlight in association with SpaceTo will debut this Friday, May 21 on Instagram, and at Extra.ie, Evoke.ie, Rollercoaster.ie, OneFabDay.com, MailOnline, LisaCannon.ie and GLAMDOLL.ie.
