iShine KNECT is a Christian television show created by Robert Beeson as a part of the iShine ministry. It is broadcast on Trinity Broadcasting Network with a cast of teen singers, actors and dancers. Season five is in production. The show's first season was in 2009.

Season 1 (2009)[edit]

iShine's first season was written and directed by Beeson and Kevan Cyka. The show featured artists, performances and interviews as well as short segments where the cast did improvisation and comedy.

Season 2 (2010)[edit]

iShine is alive and the iShine staff worked with writers in Dallas, Texas, to create "Cafe iShine," a club built in the Trinity Broadcasting Network's studios. The show was filmed in high-definition and was along the lines of iCarly and Hannah Montana. The season was directed by Don Dartt and broadcast in July 2010. The season had twelve episodes and an additional Live Concert Special.

Season 3 (2011)[edit]

In 2011, Beeson and the iShine staff used Club iShine and revised it into "iShine Academy".

    She is strict and constantly sneaks up on Troy as well as saying "I'm watching you."She is Troy's girlfriend Amelia's Aunt Mildred according to the episode "Speak Truth".She always acts nice around Mr.Bridges so he doesn't suspect how harsh she is with Troy and the students.In the episode "Who's the Bully?" it is implied that she pulls the student's ears as she does to Alexis and Ckenzi for lying when they tell her Max was bullying Troy.
  • Kevan Cyka (portrays Mr. Bridges, ex-owner of the Academy and Club iShine; Cyka's record label Whiplash Records produces many of the musical acts on the show)
  • Doug Goodrich (as Troy, new owner and manager of the IShine Academy and Cafe IShine)
