Dozens of people showed up Sunday morning in Houston for the premiere of the new CW 39 docudrama called Co-Parenting with the Spurlings.

The show made its big debut on Houston television and the producers are hoping to expand it to other channels around the country.

The television show takes an indepth look at the relationship between Houston attorney Dennis Spurling and his ex-wife Stephanie and how the couple continue to raise their two boys together despite divorce.

Spurling says, “I really want to highlight and show off the city of Houston in the show.”

The television show is written and directed by Houstonian Oscar Carrillo while Alexis Robbie and Dennis Spurling serve as executive producers on the project.

The big launch for the show was held at King’s Court in downtown Houston where there was no shortage of people to see the first episode of the Spurlings.

Here are some of the pictures I snapped including emcee Carmen Contreras and legendary rapper Willie D of the Geto Boys.

CPS airs Sunday mornings at 10 am on CW 39!

 

 

 

 

HAS THE HOUSTON POLICE DEPARTMENT PLACEDENT YOUR FAVORITE BAR AND NIGHTCLUB ON ITS BAN LIST?

The controversy surrounding Gaslamp in Midtown prompted the Harris County Sheriff’s office to ban its deputies from working security at the bar.

In a May 2015 amateur video a White female says her Black friends were charged to get in the bar while she wasn’t.

It’s a charge of discrimination Gaslamp has been fighting and aggressively denying through its attorney since September.

But standing by watching it all was a Harris County deputy.

The video shows he would only enforce the bar’s policy by telling the women who complained of discrimination to leave.

We decided to check with the Houston Police Department about the nightclubs, bars and other businesses they have banned their officers from working extra security.

Public records show HPD was aware of Gaslamp’s alleged discrimination since October 2014.

That’s when the department banned its officers from working security at the bar because of house rules.

Ray Hunt with the police union has no problem with HPD’s long list of bars and clubs they have banned their officers from working at as security.

More than 70 businesses have made the list. HPD cites various reasons from discrimination to shady owners with criminal convictions, prostitution, gambling, rave parties, and even cock fighting.

But the most surprising business on that list is the House of Blues.

Now keep in mind HPD did not ban the business because of anything bad.

Hunt says, “House of Blues and their corporate do not permit officers to come in there off duty carrying their weapons.”

In the meantime, Hunt says if a Houston police officer sees something illegal at an extra job he or she must report it.

What if that officer turns a blind eye to questionable activity while just collecting a check?

“They could be terminated. It’s called sound judgment,” says Hunt.

Note: Gaslamp has denied any allegations of discrimination at the bar through the company’s attorney.
