DAYTON — Dayton’s CW (WBDT-TV) has announced that The Valley, Dayton’s first locally produced reality show, will premiere 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14 on Dayton’s CW.
The Valley centers around six high school graduates as they prepare for the next big step in their lives. The cast, which includes Alexys Bardonaro and Christopher Harrison from Centerville, Ally Lewber from Springboro, Donald Boone from Huber Heights, Nathan Baker from DeGraff and Stephanie Patino-Garfias from Dayton, embark on a series of adventures throughout the greater Dayton region and explore important topics, such as drinking and driving, self-exploration, peer pressure, etc.
“The Valley isn’t your typical reality show. This is reality with a purpose,” said Joe Abouzeid, President and General Manager. “The show is enlightening and entertaining for viewers of all ages. It really captures what teenagers are going through during this important right of passage in their lives. There has been a lot of buzz around the show and we are all excited about its debut in September.”
“These young adults are not scripted characters produced for an adolescent melodrama, but they are actually real people with real experiences,” said Steve Bailey, Executive Producer of The Valley. “Each cast member has something unique to prove and we are pleased to share their exciting journey with our viewers.”
