DeadLine Production began its journey as a nameless play in October 2008. Since then C.E.O. Lisa Ward and C.F.O. Dr. Tameka "Doc" Wright have envisioned the music part of DeadLine and its young people being seen and heard by hundreds of people, selling in stores, and getting recognized for being talented young writers, singer's, photographer’s, producer's, actors and actresses.
 
DeadLine’s vision is to have the future generation discover their talent, creativity, and confidence through a series of uplifting self-created projects that would eventually be performed in front of a live audience’s of people who will be able to listen and see their work. These two women and their team of young adults have been working tirelessly to make this dream a reality.
 
DeadLine plans to empower children, young adults and people over all through positive entertainment. The team at DeadLine has been consistently striving to encourage, inspire, and educate the future generation. DeadLine’s goal is to take on one or two young adult projects a year and make their dream’s come true by giving them a door way they have been looking for, most of there lives.

Deadline welcomes all who are interested to be a part of this positive movement that they are creating. In this movement it will take hard work, understanding, loyalty, respect, determination and commitment to truly reach your dreams and goals. DeadLine Production first album is under Tahj Entertainment. The Album is called “Arising Phoenix” and it well be released in 2011.
