In a statement, Brett Dismuke, General Manager of AllBlk & WE tv, said:
“Kold x Windy is a significant and thought-provoking survival story shedding light on the strong influence Drill culture has on our city streets and social media that has become so controversial.”
“Our goal is to pull back the curtain and give viewers a first-hand look at these strong female characters humanizing them as we paint a vivid picture of the personal relationships, real-life challenges, and ongoing cycles that can be challenging to overcome.”
“Notably, Kold x Windy will mark the return of WE tv into the scripted space after several years, and to do so with such a culturally relevant and timely story as this, feels like an excellent opportunity for us to introduce a new element to, WE tv’s current programming mix.”
