Dean Wilson hosts new Good Life TV

Good Life TV with Dean Wilson, executive director of the Turner Foundation, which provides accommodation for the elderly and economically challenged, is taped in the garden at his Montecito home near the Rosewood Miramar and is dedicated to bringing “real stories from real people.”

“We invite people from all walks of life to share their raw, unedited stories of how they’ve come to be who they are today,” says Dean.

“You’ll hear stories filed with laughter, hope, sorrow and triumphs – all with the sole purpose of bringing the world a little closer together.”

Interviews vary from 30 minutes to an hour and the 14 episodes shot so far have so far included Key Class founder John Daly, New House honcho Gordon Guy, Gina Carbajal of the Special Olympics, and UCLA-UCSB basketball coach Gary Cunningham.

Last week the site had 448,000 views on Facebook and in the first month got 10,000 views, including 50 states and 22 countries.

The shows can be accessed at and episodes have also been airing locally on TVSB channels 17 and 71 for the past few weeks.

“Good life isn’t fame, fortune, follows, or feelings,” adds Dean. “Good life is love, friendship, laughter, forgiveness, redemption, family, hope, adventure, service, joy, kindness, making noble plans, and dreaming great dreams. So wherever you are, raise a glass to the good life.”
