Next Democratic Debate To Be Held At Tyler Perry Studios
Just weeks after Tyler Perry unveiled his new studio, it has been confirmed that the studio will host the fifth democratic presidential debate in November. According to Stacey Abrams, the former governor candidate for the city of Atlanta confirmed the news in a tweet.
Tyler Perry studios is the first large studio of its kind owned by an African-American. The massive studio is housing 12 soundstages—each named after an African American trailblazer—as well as production facilities for Tyler’s film and TV projects, and third party studios.
The debate, hosted by MSNBC and The Washington Post, will have an all-female set of moderators. Rachel Maddow, host of “The Rachel Maddow Show”, moderated the debate in June, will be joined by Andrea Mitchell, the host of “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC; Kirsten Welker, NBC News’ White Housecorrespondent; and Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post.
The debate will take place on Nov. 20 from 9 to 11pm. ET.
