I entered January 2009 hoping that the following 12 months would usher in significant growth in quality and access for Talk of Fame. And thanks to much hustling and your support via comments, clicks, and emails, both I and the show underwent some game-changing developments. I’ve listed a few highlights below in hopes that we can celebrate together!
Entering The Warner Bros. Family
In March/April, I transitioned from creating/editing digital content at Fox Reality Channel to exploring social media opportunities with Warner Bros. So far, there’ve been a couple serendipitous Talk of Fame/WB crossovers – we covered a Chuck promotion for Talk of Fame, and TheWB.com featured a Talk of Fame piece on its site this summer!
I confess – tweeting and blogging as an extension of my job makes me giddy – a little. Knowing that my Fox Reality homies continue to have my back widens the smile even more.
Establishing A Partnership With MTV
This summer, MTV took note of Talk of Fame’s signature America’s Best Dance Crew segments – wherein I try to dance with the most recently eliminated crew – and began posting these clips on MTV.com.
After ABDC’s 4th season wrapped, MTV asked me to produce the Behind-the-Scenes content for 2 of their Los Angeles-based shows during 2010. One is Warren the Ape – a scripted show where a puppet embarks on a mission to regain the fame that he once had. I’ll be able to confirm the other program within a couple weeks.
In-Depth Celebrity Interviews
As a result of many generous folks (props to you publicists!), Talk of Fame landed sessions with performers from some of the year’s most acclaimed shows/films/music groups.
I had a blast kicking it with the Glee team, The Hangover’s Bradley Cooper, and Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas. Perhaps my most rewarding moment, however, was when I engaged Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner in a conversation about the show’s portrayal of race at its Season 3 premiere.
We’re on roll, so we’ve gotta make 2010 a whopper! I appreciate y’all!Related Posts
