A while back we had an idea, to make a late night talk show, along the lines of The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno and The Charlie Rose Show, only we wanted to have it be entertaining. And smart. So we sat down and wrote some ideas, and what we came up with was the model for "Twilight w/ Steve Cooper".
Much like the veritable "big boys" of late night tv, the focus of "Twilight" revolves around interviews with various personalities - some famous, some not. Now, Steve won''t have the good fortune to ask Tom Cruise if he likes cats, or Whoopi Goldberg if she has a funny story about garage sales, because, well, besides being unable to book either of them, "Twilight" is about more than just celebrities coming on to plug their newest projects and give nonsensical insights. The idea is to have real, funny, conversations with interesting people. Besides being hilarious, the show promises to be educational in an entertaining way. But there is one catch! We don't want to give away too much right now, but "Twilight" is going to be different than any late night show you've ever seen.
To start, we're going to film episodes on a real set, on a real sound stage, and for now, upload them to my website www.ImSteveCooper.com. We have a great marketing scheme in the works that includes: public transportation ads, outdoor signage, web ads, and canvasing of streets - not to mention blast emails and various e-marketing methods engineered to get heavily trafficked blogs to notice. We're hoping all of this, collectively, adds up to a network or high-level production sponsorship.
So what is the money for, you ask? Well, for one, space. Renting a professional-level sound stage in New York is a pricey operation. Also, crew. And set design. Oh, and advertising. We want to do this right, high-quality - it'll be filmed in HD - and the performances will make you feel like you're sitting in downtown Burbank, having won a lottery to see Johnny. And for that, we'll need a treasure chest. That's where you come in. Look into it, and if you have any questions, please feel free to visit the website at www.imstevecooper.com or email either Steve or Jeremy at email@example.com. We promise you'll laugh!
