(Los Angeles, Sept. 27, 2017) – Korin Huggins, former head of television for Will Packer Productions and producing partner Monique Nash have launched Kronicle Media, an independent production company based in Los Angeles that will develop drama, comedy and unscripted content for broadcast, cable and streaming networks, and digital platforms.

Additional development projects include a drama centered around the friendships between four sorority sisters who are reunited under mysterious circumstances, starring and
executive produced by rap/hip-hop legend and actress MC Lyte along with producing partner Lynn Richardson under their Sunni Gyrl banner.
“We created Kronicle Media out of our desire to tell stories for and about women from diverse perspectives. We saw a demand in the marketplace for female-centric content and felt this was the perfect time to capitalize on this, by creating a venture that would combine both our passion and producing experience. We’re excited to dive in and make TV magic,” said Korin Huggins and Monique Nash.
