Judyth Piazza chats with Dykema Cozine Mathews, Founder of P.G. Production Drama Network, Ltd.,

Dykema Cozine Mathews is a native Detroiter. "Bewick and Mack" is her brainchild.

She is the writer, director, and producer for the show that has been entertaining audiences in the Detroit area on local Comcast Community Cable stations since October 2006. Her goal is to use her extensive experience as a playwright, director, producer, actor, arranger, lyricist, and soloist to create projects that reflect a positive image of Detroit and highlight the fortitude of urban families.

She has written, directed, and produced over ten stage productions. Her work has been recognized by corporations like Ford Motor Company, who sponsored Mathews` original play about domestic violence, "The Silent Cry," that was performed at fifteen high schools and at two universities in the Detroit area. "Bewick and Mack" grew as an extension of such projects and Mathews` desire to present more of her original work and to broaden her audience.

Mathews credits God for her vivid imagination and the gift to communicate through writing, directing, acting, and producing. She also gives credit to her wonderful parents who nurtured and cultivated her talent in her early years.

Mathews leads a busy life. She works in administrative support at the Ann Arbor Veterans Administration, is the owner and president of her own company, Praise God Production Drama Network, and currently writes and produces the reality/comedy sitcom "Bewick and Mack." Mathews says she is a self-starter and a hard worker who believes that after every storm there is sunshine if we can just hold on.

The new, dynamic reality/comedy series "Bewick and Mack" features a middle class, Black family named the Kearneys who share a two family flat on a street called Bewick on Detroit`s east side. The Kearneys have been community residents for almost 50 years and have experienced many community changes including the increase in crime, corruption, broken homes, vacant buildings, and unemployment that impact their lives. Yet, in spite of these changes, they have remained strong, committed. Their commitment to family and to the City of Detroit illustrates how love and cooperation can make a difference in a community. The show also highlights the activities on the corner of Bewick and Mack and the antics of the street lady "Toosweet" who often interacts with the Kearney family.
