Luana Figueroa describes herself as a writer /producer with a knack of creatively to go with it. Although she won’t say it, others will say she it, she is a creative genius in the world of reality TV. Luana began her career in TV working on the Jerry Springer Show. Producing one of the most seen syndicated international shows in TV history is a nice way to start your career. Luana spent three and half years with the show, and was responsible for all aspects of the production.
While with the Jerry Springer show she was asked to work on a new show called “The Steve Wilkos Show”. Luana was given the responsibility to make the sizzle reel of the show, and to pitch it to the network executives. Soon after the sizzle reel was seen the networks wanted a pilot. She again was asked to work her magic and do the pilot. Once again Luana created the magic and the Steve Wilkos show was born. Soon the word spread, of her ability to create the visions for sizzle reels as well as pilots. Luana was now being sought out within the industry to create shows for various networks and production houses. While producing the Steve Wilko show, she prided herself with bringing to life some of the hardest criminal cases ever to be on national syndicated TV. Soon thereafter another TV show came calling. In this industry good news travels quickly. The creators of “Hardcore Pawn Detroit” approached Luana and asked her to do the pilot for what is now one of the top reality shows in the country.
Luana was responsible for over one hundred episodes, of some of the most watched shows in the history of the show. Luana is also credited with the making of the pilot, The Bill Cunniham show for WGN in Chicago. Just like all the other shows Luana, was responsible for shoot schedules, running down permits, pitching the story, supervising camera crews as well as acting as field director. It was quite clear to those around her she was headed for greatness In February of this year, after doing some sole searching, Luana recreated herself as CEO of Lakeshore Productions where she will begin to create her own visions for new and explosive reality TV shows.
Luana will also under take the responsibilities of creating new documentary’s she has written, along with new ideas for shows she believes in. Just in the last few months Luana, has signed some the biggest names in the sports world to contracts to have their story told. Lakeshore Productions brings to the table one of the hardest working producers of reality TV shows in the in the business. Luana as CEO of the company has brought with her a team of outstanding camera crew members, along with the brightest film editors, producers, writers, production assists within the industry.
