Travel Thru History is an educational and informative (e/i) television show for teens and their parents.
Our boys, John and Joe, just caught lightning in a bottle!
The MeTV Network has decided to graciously allow them to front the cost of a 13 episode, educational, television series, called Travel Thru History.
Whereas most television shows are made with gobs of money, big wig executives, and the beautiful stars of Hollywood...our show will be made with practically no money, an SUV with a serious battery issue, and good ol' fashion crying.
Educational programming is normally horrible. Am I right, or am I right? They want to make something worth watching.
You may have seen their previous work blanketing the winner's section on the Telly Awards website. They're kind of a big deal there. (Please don't fact check any of this.)
But in actuality, it costs serious cheddar to do this sort of stuff. Hotels, flights, gear rental, earplugs (for John's snoring), Joe's anti-nausea meds, close captioning fees, satellite feed fees, the list goes on and on.
So, in desperation, they're literally pan handling on the internet. Pride be damned!
Consider a small donation to their project to help create quality educational programming, and send these kids packing.
