About this project

GOAL: Expansion of the Traveling With Françoise brand. Going into the show’s 14th year on radio, and eight years on an ABC affiliate hosting a weekly travel segment, Traveling With Françoise has now expanded the show to include a 30 minute televised travel show currently on Fox11  and DirecTV, uncovering some of the Nation’s most hidden gems.  Traveling with Françoise is for the entire Family. With four (4) episodes having aired and more on the way, the goal is to syndicate across Southern California and the nation.  

FUNDS RAISED: Will be used to offset production costs and offer viewers the opportunity to see many of the amazing small towns across America that offer their own must see and do adventures.  Typically these locations do not have advertising or public relations dollars, losing the ability to draw travelers to their area.  

PRODUCTION: Consists of two people, a cameraman and the show host/producer.  We have the ability to write and produce all content and we have full editorial control. Our episodes are far from a cookie cutter approach to television.                             

Risks and challenges

Risks: Going into my 14th year as the owner of a successful radio show means that I'm familiar with the challenges of moving forward, sponsorship's and budgets.
Currently there are four completed television shows airing, and soon to be five and six on the air, with endless possibilities.
All episodes are completed and paid for before airing and there would be no problem in distributing rewards.
The challenges I'm facing is trying to feature fantastic smaller destinations that do not have marketing dollars and depend on word of mouth. These locations are everywhere and capture the viewing audience.
