Martial arts action cinema is currently getting another revival as of next month. Multi-faceted actress, stunt professional and media mogul Janell Smith, acting CEO of Iron Dragon Productions is leveling up this September for the launch of a new television network. The new network purports the longstanding brand she has carried since her early start in personal fitness.
On top of being a film fan and her on-set experience, Smith herself is also a purveyor of several martial arts styles, including Tukong Moosul – based on its roots in South Korean military commando training. And with her growing credentials in entertainment, it’s clear to see how deserving she is of this opportunity, and I look forward to seeing what happens with her future endeavors with Iron Dragon TV.
