Digital Rights Group (DRG), a leading distributor of content in the UK, has signed a development deal for the television comedy series Blowout with Filmaka members Michael Kinney and Max Herholz. They were discovered through Filmaka's Hard Times competition, which DRG sponsored. Now, fresh from that success, DRG is pleased to offer another opportunity for Filmaka members to have their ideas heard. They are partnering with Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC), Canada's national public broadcaster. This time, the competition is . . . to invent a competition. www(.)filmaka(.)com/gameshow/ Send us a pitch for a reality or game show you think might be the next international craze - the next Deal or NoDeal, Dancing With the Stars, or The Weakest Link. We'll fund five of them to be turned into pilots, and those pilots will be considered by professional television development executives. If they think you've got what it takes, they may approach you about further development. If not, you'll all be voted off the island. Your pitches must be uploaded to Filmaka by 24:00 on Sunday, January 24th, 2010. Thanks. Note - Please remove BRACKETS to use the LINK.
