Los Angeles, CA — Telecommunications titan and tv/film producer Louis Arriola has a lot to be proud of this year. As the founder of NYLA Production he has witnessed every one of his films make an indelible mark on the silver screen.

His production company, NYLA Production continues to mimic his mission of greatness. “It’s a gratifying feeling to see my vision become a reality. My production company will continue to nourish up and coming talent by showcasing them in the most positive light,” says Arriola.

His latest project Up North has amassed critical acclaim as the recipient of several awards at this year’s Series Fest, which recognizes some of the best independent television in production. Up North is a drama series created by Emil Pinnock and Damaine Radcliff.

The project also picked up four awards including: Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Pilot, while also winning the overall Audience Award (which is voted on by the attendees). This project is centered around an innocent African American teen who is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, and as a result he gets trapped in the New York prison system.

This drama series is already generating buzz from several cable networks who are comparing it to HBO’s The Wire because the series is able to capture the “true grit” in one of the roughest prison systems in the country.
