Actress, Producer AlgeRita Wynn's Home Improvement Web Series 'Retire My Room' Premieres in June


I don’t have to tell you that there are a lot of web

series out there right now and more are being created every day. Yet with the

exception of a few, most of them seem to follow the same routine – usually of

some driftless 20 or 30-something old year olds trying to muddle their way through life and relationships.

Which is why actress and producer AlgeRita Wynn’s (who you know from films such as Crazy Stupid Love and as Cynthia on NBC’s

The Office) new web series, set to premiere on June 3rd, is worthy of attention.

Ms. Wynn has created, produced and hosts a room makeover, do-it-yourself web series which she calls Retire My

Room, and which is aimed at older viewers and retirees who are looking to

makes some big changes in their lives.

She says that the idea for the series first came to her

after the death of her father in 2008, who was married to her mother for 52

years (back then when black men were men… unlike


She says that to prevent her mother from slipping “into

a depression, I would redecorate her favorite rooms in the house… I started out

painting the walls, adding new window treatments, and new accessories. I

started to notice a change in my mother’s behavior, she had more energy she was

happier and more social. So, I thought, “If a room makeover can improve my

mom’s spirit, what if there was a show where other seniors would be inspired to

improve not only there living conditions, but their spirits for the next stage

in their life….

So she started developing her series, even lining up

sponsors such as Eddie Bauer Airstream,

Golden Design Group and Houseproud Atlanta, and made her

idea a reality.

And come to think of it, you have to wonder why a black producer

hasn’t come up with the concept of a home improvement web series until now.

But hopefully this will spark others to follow.

The series has its own website which you go to HERE
