Ep. 24: Tim Reid - Dad, The Spirit Warrior, and Creating a Legacy
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Some may know him as Ray Campbell on Sister, Sister, and others as Venus Flytrap on WKRP in Cincinnati. And then there are those who fondly recall him as Frank Parrish on Frank’s Place, or others as "Downtown Brown" on Simon and Simon. But none of these aliases hold a candle to the man, distinct, renowned and an original in his own right.  He is called a pioneer because of his founding of New Millennium Studios in 1997 before Tyler Perry and after Oscar Micheaux’s Lincoln Motion Picture Company in the 1940's.  So many around the world call him inspiration or mentor. Two of us call him Dad.  And there is one who calls him Poppy. He is also doted on as a husband, friend and leader amongst men. He has a whimsical mischief in his heart that attaches anatomically to your funny bone; a twinkle in his eye that catches you off guard and makes you see the stars; and the most unforgettable stories one can ever tell. Yes, a charismatic presence that can elevate all within his radius to cosmic beings; the most elemental definition of a superstar

Here’s to Tim Reid, my dad - a culture manifesting auteur, a brilliant visionary, an outlier - an icon.  

“When I built the studio, first since Oscar Micheaux, betting millions of my own money... it didn’t work the way I had anticipated. It does work - Tyler Perry has proven that and he’s done a hell of a job with it. So I knew it worked. Yeah, it's possible!"  - Tim Reid
