Shadow Politics, 24/09/2017
Maria Sanchez is back and our guest this week is actor JLouis Mills from NBC's hit television series 'Heartbeat'! We'll be talking about his life 'before' the hit series when he spent some time homeless and 'after' the series ended in 2016, and what he's up to currently with his new radio talk show 'ON THE LEVEL' every Wed at 8pm PST / 11pm EST on BBS Radio! Join us!
JLouis Mills is an American actor best known for playing the character Forrester in the hit television series 'Heartbeat' produced by NBC in 2016 .
'HEARTBEAT' was loosely inspired by the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato. This unique character-driven medical drama follows Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George, "The Slap"), an outspoken world-renowned heart transplant surgeon and one of the few women in her field. Stubborn and fearless, Alex always operates on her own terms. She revels in a racy personal life that's a full-time job in itself, manages the daily demands of skeptical faculty and dutiful interns, and pushes the boundaries of medical science to impressive new heights.
Along with JLouis, the other cast members included actors Melissa George, Dave Annable, Don Hany, Shelley Conn, D.L. Hughley, Jamie Kennedy, Maya Erskine and Joshua Leonard.
Mills lost vision in one eye in 2013 that also became discolored and began wearing an eyepatch. Before landing his role on Heartbeat, Mills worked as a caretaker and was homeless for a time. Mills is also known for such films as The Tribe and The ABCs of Death.
He's also the host of his own talk show on BBS Radio every Wednesday at 8pm Pacific on Station 2 called 'ON THE LEVEL'with JLouis Mills.
Shadow Politics is a grass roots talk show giving a voice to the voiceless. For more than 200 years the people of the Nation's Capital have ironically been excluded from the national political conversation. With no voting member of either house of Congress, Washingtonians have lacked the representation they need to be equal and to have their voices heard. Shadow Politics will provide a platform for them, as well as the millions of others nationwide who feel politically disenfranchised and disconnected, to be included in a national dialog.
We need to start a new conversation in America, one that is more inclusive and diverse and one that will lead our great nation forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At Shadow Politics, we hope to get this conversation started by bringing Americans together to talk about issues important to them. We look forward to having you be part of the discussion so call in and join the conversation. America is calling and we're listening… Shadow Politics is about America hearing what you have to say. It's your chance to talk to an elected official who has spent more than 30 years in Washington politics. We believe that if we start a dialog and others add their voices we will create a chorus. Even if those other politicians in Washington don't hear you — Senator Brown will. He's on a mission to listen to what America has to say and use it to start a productive dialog to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. If we are all part of the solution we can solve any problem.
