Her groundbreaking television series "The Rocks," supported by the City of Sedona, Arizona, further solidified her reputation as a trailblazing producer and creative force in the entertainment world.


With a keen eye for talent and a passion, Summer Helene continues to inspire and lead the way in the ever-evolving landscape of Hollywood production mentoring and supporting young females, women of color, foster kids, and LGBTQ talent. 


Currently, Summer is deeply immersed in a range of multiple active projects and the majority involve Lifetime and A&E under its parent Disney, ESPN, Discovery, Amazon Prime, BBC and Hulu. 


She is in the midst of doing multiple projects, and is most excited by the next green lit Lifetime backed project is "Queen of Temecula", starring former Playboy model Arkansas born Mrs. Brandie Newman focused on "The Stampede", the largest country western venue in California and spinoff show Dr. S.  She is also working on “Receiver of Many” written by Rachel Alexander adapted by the talented Scott Brown for BBC and being directed by famous Damien Nieman.  Morever, she has a travel show, starring Miguel Nuñez and Elley Ringo! and “Sugar Shane Mosley’s fight night” an extravaganza focusing on the greatest MMA fighters and boxers in history.
