Wesley Morris Entertainment Announces Slate of Sports Entertainment Shows
Company opens with three shows in preproduction
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 8, 2010
Wesley Morris Entertainment has announced a slate of three sports entertainment television series that it has moved into preproduction including The Natural – The Search for America’s Greatest Athlete, Bragging Rights and Strike It Rich.
The Natural – The Search for America’s Greatest Athlete is described as American Idol for athletes. Through nationwide tryouts, the fifty top male and female athletes from around the country will be found and will compete in 50 different sports until America’s Greatest Athlete is found. Bill Garnet, Wesley Morris’ recently announced President, says The Natural, “was a natural fit for the newly opened sports division and has huge potential for national and international formats.”
Bragging Rights is a team oriented series fueled by audience involvement. Establishing a new precedent in television, the show will incorporate patent”“pending technology that will enable the audience to control multiple elements of the live show through texting, smart phone applications and online participation. When questioned about the content of the series, Garnet replied that, “The show will have multiple teams competing against each other in events that are a cross between those seen in Japanese game shows, Wipeout and Minute to Win It, but for me the key to the show is that home viewers can mess with the teams live. Who wouldn’t want to mess someone up while they are trying to win money on TV?”
Strike It Rich combines the high stakes of modern game shows with elements from traditional bowling. “It’s Bowling for Dollars for the twenty-first century,” Garnet says, “Both contestants and viewers can win.” With those on the show winning money for each pin knocked down and both bonuses and a grand prizes every episode, the way the participants win is clear, but how the home viewers will win is a new concept. “We’ve figured out a way using new online and smartphone application technology for home viewers to play along with the show participants and win prizes. It’s Deal or No Deal meets Wheel of Fortune,” he said. The show has been developed in both celebrity and standard formats due to the extensive international potential of the concept. “Bowling is the biggest indoor participation sport in the world, you know.”
Wesley Morris Entertainment has been involved in the television industry for more than 20 years and has produced such shows as American Gladiators, The Superstars, Star Kids and Battle of the Network Stars.
