As a professional with 25 years of experience editing and producing content, including creating Bounce TV’s hit drama series Saints & Sinners which is now available on Hulu, Ri-Karlo Handy has established his reputation as a showrunner at major networks such as MTV, OWN, and BET and won a Prism Award and was an NAACP Image Award Nominee for the Keyshia Cole series. In addition to his experience as a creative in production Ri-Karlo has spent several years in the boardroom developing television and building a television network from the ground up.

As the SVP of original programing at Bounce TV, he ran the entire original programing budget and schedule growing the network to number 2 in ratings for the AA market. After learning the business of television on all sides of the industry he independently produced and self syndicated several programs through his company Sunwise Media.

During this uncertain time in Hollywood, Ri-Karlo’s post production skills have uniquely positioned him to navigate the uncertainty by editing film and TV from home. His company Sunwise Media has been trusted to deliver for several national television programs and handling postproduction for feature films and livesteams for clients such as BlackEnterprise, a business that was vital during the recent months of sheltering in place.
