Feeling Life through Entertainment & Arts, Live to Everyone Everywhere
Streaming is a lifestyle and the way the world is choosing to be entertained and educated. FleaLeeTV is a co-op network and digital platform for original and independent programming bringing you premier LIVE stream and video-on-demand content.
FleaLeeTV is creating a new financial ecosystem for Black Independent Filmmakers, Screen Writers, Producers and Entertainers. We are opening doors for a demographic that has been underrepresented and under paid in the television, film, concert tour and digital media industries. We are the premier co-op media network for entertainment and indie films. Our platform is about the Artists and the resources that we can provide to help them succeed in this industry. FleaLeeTV LLC is headquartered in Las Vegas, NV with a virtual platform for content distribution all over the world.
As a co-op, we partner with our clients, creating a community, sharing resources and crowdfunding through our unique Raving Fan rating system. We want to be the distribution platform for new, up and coming content creators and veterans alike. Content providers can showcase their work, tell their stories and build a fanbase, while creating a stream of revenue.
FleaLeeTV was founded in March 2020 by Dion Lee and Carla Williams-Lee. This time is marked by unfortunate and unprecedented circumstances stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to an immediate closure of businesses, schools, and even the government. Quarantine mandates caused many to lose their jobs and steady flow of income. Concert tours and live performances were cancelled leaving those in the industry without a way to make a living. Movie theaters have been closed, while video streaming has become the new norm.
Entertainment industry traditions have taken the talent of our Black musicians, singers, comedians, and athletes for granted and treated them as commodities for high monetary gains. The problem is that the Artists usually get a small piece of the pie and no creative control, instead of getting their true value, which is what the fans are investing in… them! Besides this, Blacks have been underrepresented and underserved within the television and film industries as a whole. With the ongoing exposure of racial and social injustices leading to a global movement for Black Lives Matter, the climate is ripe for our voices to be heard and seen as a way to express urban lifestyle and culture without prejudice or filters. Major companies are openly looking for ways to engage and market to African American audiences as they strive for diversity and inclusion. FlealeeTVrises out of the perfect storm for both artists and audiences.

Dion’s passion is working with talent in the music, film, and comedy industry to elevate their careers. During his time in the business, he recognized a huge disparity between their fame and the money that their fame brought to the studios, labels and promoters of the world leaving them with the a very small share of the pie. He created FleaLeeTV as a solution for artists to monetize their craft and a platform to distribute their content to their fans. His vision is that the network will be a co-op where everyone will work together to get to where they want to be. For the fans, we want to give them a dynamic entertainment experience and build loyal subscribers. Dion has always been an entrepreneur and lives by the mantra “How you do anything this how you do everything!”
“I saw a need to reinvent the way we experience our favorite artists and entertainers, both old and new, building community and culture. LIVE concerts can be streamed directly to you and allow backstage access following the show. The world is changing and if you don’t change with it, you will be left behind.”DION “FLEA” LEE
