About this project
Tigerland Media Group LLC is engaged in the development and production of a reality TV show starring 3x lightweight champion of the world, Tony “The Tiger” Lopez. It is our intention to complete a Reality TV Show Pilot entitled "Tony The Tiger Lopez - Fugitive Recovery Agent". Although the show is about fugitive recovery, the show will encompass many aspects of Tony's current life including interesting segments about his family, friends, and guest celebrities. We are developing a multi-facited show containing action, drama, and light comedy which will mezmorize and captivate the viewing audience. We plan to "keep it real" so none of the emotion of true life is lost, and the show remains raw and gritty, the stuff of pure entertainment.
The show WILL BE PITCHED to large cable TV networks through our community of inside connections, and has an excellent chance being picked up for the next season of new shows. The people involved in this project are well connected, and the producers have many years of film and TV experience with many professional credits.
High end shows of this type are very expensive to make, and a significant amount of personal funds have been used to fund this project. We are at the point where completion funding is now necessary. Your additional funding will be used to hire professional sound men, additional cinematographers, grips and lighting personel, a professional music composer to write a theme song, and background score, and for high end editing. The completed project will be in the form of a "Sizzle" reel, and a full 22 minute episode, which we will use to pitch to the networks.
Tony "The Tiger" Lopez is more than just a former world champion boxer, he is a humanitarian. He donates much of his time attending many charity and community events. For many years he helped encourage and inspire youths at the Boy Ranch for troubled teens. He has worked with youths and young adults motivating them to pursue sports, giving personal athletic training, and encouraging them to do their very best in life. Additionally, Tony sits on the Board of Directors for California Police Youth Charity. Tony is a giver, and a rare individual with a champions heart, and a heart of gold. Tony "The Tiger" Lopez was inducted into the California Boxing Hall of Fame on October 20th, 2012.
Risks and challenges
Like with any new show, the primary risk is that the show won't be picked up by a Network. There are several reasons this can occur. For instance, the Network may not be interested in the subject, or the demographics of their viewers may not fit the style of show we are presenting. It is possible that terms of any agreement that is offered may not be suitable to all parties involved. Some unforeseen delays could also arise during the completion stage, such as footage that needs to be re-shot, or technical problems with sound or other equipment, causing a delay in completion. It may be decided that the final editing needs to be re-done, if we as producers feel it could be done better. Also, since some filming will be done outdoors in winter, rainy weather could cause a delay.
However, with that said, we believe in this projects success, and we hope you will share our belief. To all our donors, we would like to extend our greatest appreciation for you help in funding the completion of our project. We can't thank you enough. You have our blessing...
