UPDATE - Wow
If we get to $150K, i will visit 3 audience member home towns and we will ask people who the most interesting person they know is, and make a show about what we find.
P.S. we have started planning/brainstorming inside kickstarter! any pledge gets you into the conversation! just look at the updates in the tab above!
P.P.S. If we get to $1 Billion I will buy Greece and install sea to sea carpeting!
In 2006, I launched a show called "The Show With Ze Frank." It was one of the most strange, exciting, difficult, and amazing things I have done so far. I think it is time to do something similar, what with the economy in the crapper and the election coming up. If Newt can do it, so can I. So can we.
Same Same but Different.
Some things will be familiar. My face, my voice, politics, news, science, whatever else is happening in the world, the celebration of the spontaneous... and surprises.
But the core of the original show was never really about what I did. It was about what you did. And I have no idea what is going to happen there. It's risky, unknown and awesome. I will be asking you to make things, to do things, and to surprise me. We will use the world as our playground and I have the technology to back it up. If I don't, I will make it.
To start, I want to produce around three episodes a week for a year and take it from there. I want this to be fun and to last for a while. I figure that I will launch sometime at the end of March, near to the 6th anniversary of the original show.
All of the funds raised here will go towards the production of the show - equipment, salaries for people that will help me, rent. I will find other ways to pay myself.
