Renowned Producer/Storyteller Charles Mattocks To Release New Series, Reversed  Focuses on the Keto Diet For Health People with Underlying Diseases Should Monitor Their Health, Especially in the Time of Covid, Reversed Will Help Show Them the Way to Better Health

February 2, 2021, New York, NY- Charles Mattocks, host of Reversed  and Eight Days is an award winning filmmaker  and  one  of  the  few  Black  film  and  tv  producers  who  owns  the  content  he  creates.  His programs have aired on major TV networks such as WGN, PBS, Discovery and more.

Charles Mattocks has carved out an important niche. He has been creating health related content and TV since 2017.  Mr.  Mattocks and his team  chose  to  move  forward  during  this  trying time to continue to highlight the importance of health and wellness through diet. During Covid, it is especially important for people who  have  underlying  diseases  to  pay close attention to their diet. For everyone, a healthy and nutritious diet is also important when fending off Coronavirus.

Charles  also  owns  and  produced  another  series  called  Eight  Days  which  was  featured  on  the  WGN America network. The new season of Reversed will air in September on the WGN America networks and re-air on COX Communications.

The  new  program  is  set to start production in February, 2021 and will culminate into 10 episodes that will be 1 hour each. They will showcase the Ketogenic Diet and intermittent fasting as a way to help treat people with underlying diseases with a focus on diabetes. “We have lined up a dream team of health and wellness experts who will educate, inspire and help tell the stories of those living under harsh conditions and how to cope. We hope this will help give the show a voice and touch the millions of people who live with disease everyday,” says Charles.

The  series  will  feature  high  profile  experts  as:  Dr  Jason  Fung,  Dr  Ken  Berry,  Dr  Lori  Shemek,  Karl Shallowhorn and Maria Emmerich as the show’s Keto chef. “Our understanding of how Type 2 Diabetes impacts  all  illness  and  disease  is  vital  to  reversing  it.  It  is  crucial  we  eliminate  underlying  health conditions  such  as  type  2  diabetes,  obesity,  high  blood  pressure  and  more  to  promote  a healthy and resilient  immune  response.  These  metabolic  conditions  have  their  roots  in  inflammation  which  is  the core  underlying  cause  of  most  illnesses,  disease,  faster  aging  and weight gain. The ketogenic diet and intermittent  fasting  are  both  powerful  tools  to  help  reverse  inflammation  leading  to  protection  from illness such as Covid-19 while promoting optimal health,” says Lori L. Shemek, PhD, CMC.

Reversed is about the mental, physical and emotional healing of people. “We have brought some of the best in healthcare together to share ways of naturally healing the body. I hope after this season we can look  at  how  the right lifestyles and exercise combined with what we eat and how we think, can play a role in improving our health,” adds Mattocks.

Charles has teamed up with some partners in keto and health to bring this project to life. Those partners include:  Keto  Mojo,  Keto  Chow,  Carb  Manager,  Swerve,  ENERGYbits,  Pork  King  Good,  Select  Savory Seasonings, Stevia Sweet BBQ, Redmond Life, Secco Wine Club, Ketonessa, Labin and Kilosophy.

Reversed has already locked in more seasons which will cover HIV and mental health. A talk show for the plus size community is also in pre production.
