KIM CLEMONS, “THE PRICE OF FAME,” “MURDER MADE ME FAMOUS” WRITER/PRODUCER SHARES MONEY-SAVING TIPS & LOCAL BUSINESS PICKS
“As a Showunner and Writer at AMS Pictures in Dallas, Texas, I’ve had the good fortune of producing many types of non-scripted programming for over 14 years. But I have to admit, producing Murder Made Me Famous, The Price of Fame and Scandal Made Me Famous for REELZ has been the best time of my career! I’ve learned more than I’ve ever dreamed of about some of America’s most notorious people. During the pandemic, we’ve also been working on a series of celebrity bio-docs for REELZ that have, thankfully, kept us busy. We also found creative ways to produce from home with children and pets under-foot!
The best thing the quarantine has taught me is how to save money! With nail and hair salons shut down, I’ve learned to do mani-pedis and even color my hair at home (thanks, YouTube!). I’m even running outside now versus going to the gym. These are new money-saving habits that I’ll definitely continue for years to come.
I’m excited for the future of TV production. I believe the lockdown has proven that smaller production houses are extremely nimble. Our size makes us able to pivot and adapt in order to produce the quality programming viewers expect.”
KIM’S LOCAL BUSINESS PICKS
“While quarantined, I’ve gained a few extra lbs frequenting my family’s favorite burger spot, The Grind. It’s in Lewisville, Texas at the Village Shops. It’s just a block away from the house, so we walk down and carry home!”
“Another family fav is Z’s Wok. You guessed it, in the Village Shops of our community of Castle Hills. They’re open late, the service is fast and their Chicken Fried Rice is the bomb! Plus they have French Fries – always a favorite for kids no matter what the cuisine.”
KIM’S FAVORITE NON-PROFIT
Mothers Against Police Brutality
“As a mother of a black teenaged son, one of the non-profits near to my heart is the Dallas-based Mothers Against Police Brutality. MAPB ultimately hopes to restore trust between police and the citizens they serve; it calls for greater civil rights, policy reform and police accountability.”
