Guerilla Producer "Mikey Jukes" has been on a labor of love, even risking his own life, to make his dream, as well as the dreams of others come true on television.

The Cipher Show is an Entertainment News and Music Video Program which originated in Southwest Florida, October of 2001. The first market it ever appeared on was WEVU, which is southwest Florida's UPN affiliate. It was created to empower aspiring entertainers.
The creator of the show is Steven Jennings aka Mikey Jukes. His first Co-Producer was the late Polo Abasi, who unfortunately passed away from Cancer several years ago.
The Cipher Show was dormant for a year (2002-2003), then resurfaced in Chicago as a Hip-Hop radio show in 2003-2004, on WYCA 102.3FM Radio, and then in Los Angeles in 2005 on KJLA channels 33 and 57.
Mikey The "Super" Guerilla Producer behind this project, has labored carrying The Cipher Show, literally by hand, from state to state on a mission to reach National Television.
In Los Angeles, Mikey Jukes and Joshua Chamberlain Produced the First 3 Episodes of The Cipher Show on a budget of less than 0 per show. Singer/Producer Rona Barrett was the only other person actually involved. She helped fund airtime and assisted with Casting and Logistics.
In the spring of 2004, Mikey Jukes created http://www.WinYourOwnTVshow.com which is a reality TV show to seek a continuous flow of hosts for The Cipher Show.
But in times like these, a good idea just isn’t enough. So in June of 2004 Mikey loaded up his computer, business plans, music videos, beta tapes and cameras and gave away all of his furniture.
Then he jumped in his car late in the night, and drove straight to Los Angeles. By doing so, he left his family, friends and risked the possibility of homelessness to pursue his dream.
While in Los Angeles, Mikey Jukes encountered great hardships and danger. Without actually knowing a single soul in California, he started from scratch, following up on phone contacts and internet leads.
He eventually held and filmed a Casting Call. That’s when he began building alliances with other Producers and Casting Directors like Rona Barrett.
After the casting call, things were slow, and Mikey needed to go into editing. He found Producer, Editor and now Partner, Joshua Chamberlain in Los Angeles.
While Josh and Mikey were in editing, Mikey lost his temporary job and fell into the Hard Times of Los Angeles Life.
Mikey Jukes spent several months; homeless in Los Angeles while Producing The Cipher Show. He managed to keep a clean car, and wore fine clothes to business meetings and continued to make contacts. Many people were unaware that at the end of the night he parked his car on dark streets from Santa Monica to Sherman Oaks and went to sleep.
Mikey lived the Hollywood Struggle, sleeping in his car, crashing on couches and holding on to his dream.
One night he was almost murdered on a dark campground in Los Angeles. He was approached and almost attacked with weapons by a group of unidentified strangers, late one night while he was crashing in Leo Carrillo National Park.
Mikey woke up as they approached his windows in the pitch dark, he turned on his car and drove through bushes and thickets to escape. He then spent time in South Central, Inglewood and Compton, staying with vague acquaintances, until landing in a safe Hotel Room in Downtown Culver City.
Mikey couldn't give up on his mission. So with the help of new friends Rona and Josh (see TV show credits), The Cipher Show aired on KJLA Channel 57 & 33 in Los Angeles from 3/4/05 to 3/25/05 reaching 3 million households weekly.
Mikey has traveled across the United States, from Florida, to Chicago, to Los Angeles and Back to Florida.
He recently signed a contract to air The (ALL NEW) Cipher Show on WTVK Southwest Florida's WB channel 6, on Friday June 24th 2005 at 2:00pm
Mikey continues to get calls, make connections and hope for the big day, when The Cipher Show will truly be recognized by National Television.
Josh, Rona and a close group of family members Mikey kept in contact with, as well as a select group of other struggling producers, actors and actresses in Hollywood have witnessed this and lived this journey with Mikey Jukes.
