About 2nd Chance Saves Lives:
The 2nd Chance Saves Lives TV Shows and Production, founded by Paul and Tiffany Nutall, is an organization and production company focused on lending a helping hand to those in need.
We Empower Magazine got an exclusive interview with Paul and Tiffany Nutall.
Tammy: When you first began 2nd Chance Saves Lives, what impact did you intend to make?
Paul: I intended to unite the world and groups of people together to help one another through our show.
Tiffany: At the beginning of our journey when we were just filming our very first pilot episode. I really envisioned our show to set an example to not just the youth but to people of all ages to be inspired and moved with compassion by the show’s stories, so that they would be inspired to help the people they meet in their own lives.
Tammy: What was the process like getting the show distributed through Fox Network?
Paul and Tiffany: After we filmed our 2 nd pitch episode here in San Antonio, we got connected with an individual at KENS5 who knew someone at the FOX29 station. After meeting with the GM and regional director, they aired our concept episode on FOX29. Then the regional director of Sinclair Broadcasting station spoke to the CFO on our behalf which resulted in us being picked up to air our shows on the nationwide FOX network.
Tammy: What are you most excited about?
Paul: I am most excited about seeing how our faith and not giving up is finally paying off and coming to fruition after so much hard work and adversity. And now we are on our way to helping more people in need.
Tiffany: I am excited about the many lives we are going to save and the impact we are going to make in their lives through our show. I’ve always envisioned our company expanding around the world since the beginning of our journey. I wholeheartedly believed it was always going to happen, so seeing doors open more and more after these past couple of years and meeting families and seeing their glimmer of hope when coming on to our show is what excites me and continues to excite me each day.
Tammy: What do you hope the reaction is from those who tune in?
Paul: I am hoping that the people who tune in will be able to put themselves in the shoes of our show’s and to imagine that they are someone who is a family or friend so that they are moved to give them a 2nd Chance if they are in a position to do so.
Tiffany: Continuing on from what I have mentioned above, I hope that our viewers’ hearts are touched by these stories, inspired when they see our guests receiving their 2nd Chance, that they are then motivated in their own lives to give people who God places in their path a helping hand whether it be a task large or small.
Tammy: What has it been like to work with each other?
Paul: With us being both alphas, I first struggled accepting that she was good at producing and directing the show. But after I began to realize how strong the show was developing with her leading production, I learned to accept that this is an area that she is very strong and good in and that it would be wise to consider, accept her ideas, and let her work the way she likes to work. And my strong suit was being the main speaker of the organization publicly and in business.
Tiffany: To be honest, the beginning stages were tough just because we both have strong alpha personalities and there were many decisions that had to be made, so finding a middle ground was tough. But as we continued to move forward, learning through experiences, and learning from both of our mistakes we began to understand our roles in the company and have now reached a place in which we know when to (as we like to say) “stay in our lane.”
Tammy: Why do you think it’s vital for the audience to watch the show?
Paul and Tiffany: It’s vital for viewers to watch the show so that they can get a clear vision of what the show is about. And if they know anyone who is needing a 2nd Chance – family member, friend, associate, etc. – they can go to our website and submit their story for their 2nd Chance.
We Empower Magazine also got to chat with Anna Nyakana.
Tammy: What is your role with the show?
Anna: I had the incredible honor to be a featured guest on the first season of Second Chances!
Tammy: How did you get involved?
Anna: Paul and Tiffany believe in the value of my Niyah Zuri Movement – a mission to empower the youth through representation and positive affirmations through books and digital media – and my dedication to decolonizing curriculums so all children can learn of the legacies from which they hail.
When I received the call that I was chosen as a guest for Second Chances, I immediately recognized the weight of the opportunity; to share my mission of saving the youth “one adventure at a time” with the nation.
