About

What is Attack of the Show? 

Attack of the Show was a daily show that aired on G4TV and kept viewers informed about video games, tech, movies, comic books, the internet, and pop culture. The show covered everything you care about.   

Hosts Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira became household names along with other on-camera talent including Sarah Lane, Zach Selwyn, Sara Jean Underwood, Wil O'Neal, Adam Sessler, Morgan Webb, Alison Haislip, Carrie Keagan, Blair Butler, Blair Herter, Jessica Chobot, Candace Bailey and many others. Attack of the Show debuted in March of 2005 and was on the air until 2013, when it was abruptly canceled. It was more than just a show, AOTS fostered a fan community that gathered to chat about whatever happened on the internet that day. The hosts connected with the audience because they were the audience. And viewers were a part of the shenanigans. AOTS and the audience became like one giant geek family and chronicled the last moments of a pop culture community before it was fractured by social media.  

Why did AOTS end?

It's been six years since Attack of the Show was canceled and G4TV ended. And since then, at Comic-Cons everywhere, I get one question... whatever happened to G4TV and Attack of the Show? What led to this wildly successful show getting the axe? I never realized how much people loved being a part of the community AOTS fostered. The absence of AOTS has been felt by fans everywhere who miss the collective conversation we used to have about comic books, movies, video games, and geek culture.   

Let's make a movie together...

So many passionate fans keep asking the same questions, so let's relive the best moments, catch up with the cast and creators, and investigate what really happened in a movie called... "Attack of the Doc."

I appeared weekly on Attack of the Show where I did the DVDuesday segment. While I was part of the team, I was also a fan of the show. I watched every episode and enjoyed it as much as you did. And frankly, I want answers about what happened. 

We will interview everyone -- the writers, producers, executives, the people who worked behind the scenes along with the talent and even the people who played recurring roles. I'll shoot a video podcast and use those interviews to make the documentary, then share the uncut audio from those interviews with you on an official Attack of the Doc Podcast.    

EXCLUSIVE Attack of the Doc Podcast ONLY for Contributors!

Now normally when subjects are interviewed for a documentary, they end up being in the final film for just a few minutes. I plan to shoot every interview and then take the audio from that interview and release it as a podcast only for backers who contribute to this campaign. You'll be along for the ride and hear it all as I document every step toward completing Attack of the Doc. So, let's break it down...  

The total budget (that is clip clearance, music clearance, travel, post-production, legal, promotion, equipment rental) will be about $150,000 if everything is done by the book. Certainly the more we have to work with, the better and the more interviews we'll be able to do. So here's a breakdown of the budget…   

Our initial goal is to raise enough money to begin shooting more interviews (we already have a few in the bag.) And each stretch goal reached unlocks more rewards for everyone! As we fund raise, we'll add more rewards along the way.     

Once we reach our initial funding goal of $25K, at the close of the campaign, backers only will see the first five minutes of Attack of the Doc! Plus all backers will see their name in the end credits of the finished film. UNLOCKED!

$50K will allow us to travel and interview the creatives and talent living outside of LA. We will also release a Special Edition Blu-Ray of the film, which will include a variety of extras- as well as a very special, secret interview

$75K and we'll screen a cut of the film to backers only at San Diego Comic-Con in July of 2020. 

$100K and we'll release extras during the making of the doc that will be a part of the digital release to backers only. You'll see the extras before the finished film. 

We know how creative AOTS fans are, so if we reach our ultimate $150K funding goal, once we complete the film, we will release the raw footage that was used to make Attack of the Doc to backers so you could make your own cut of the film. No documentary filmmaker has ever done that ever!   

 Here is our initial plan to complete a first cut of Attack of the Doc to screen to backers only during San Diego Comic-Con in July, 2020.   

Attack of the Doc is not just a passion project, it's a tribute to a show we all loved and a fan community we miss. We will face challenges. (Making documentaries is never easy.) But the best part is that you'll be able to hear each interview during shooting on the Attack of the Doc Podcast. Your input will be essential in making the best film possible with the resources we have. 

So, let's go on this journey together as we make...   

Risks and challenges

This initial round of funding is intended to get a budget to shoot all the interviews and then to make sure everything we can use is cleared legally. There may be more funding needed going forward, so this is really about gathering the interviews and assets. If we meet certain stretch goals, that will mean we won't have to seek funding in the future, but we are aware that many documentaries can cost as much as $300K or more.
