We’re pleased to announce our first original Pilot goes into production this week. The new travel series starring Bobby Rivers and Widdi Turner will be in Atlanta and areas south of the city this week highlighting some great areas to explore. Bobby is a pop culture icon who is best known from VH-1 and “Top 5 with Bobby Rivers” on Food Network. Widdi is well known to the fans of “Good Eats” on the Food Network playing a multitude of memorable characters with host Alton Brown.
Executive Producers Walter Biscardi, Jr. and Cheryl Collins head up the production team. Cheryl created the original concept and together with Walter, worked out the final design for the series. Marsha Walton is the Supervising Producer and the camera operators will be Chris Palmer and Brian Gaffner, both veterans of productions with BCM. Production Coordinator extraordinaire is Jeanna Thomas, without whom our lives would be much more difficult!
This will be a very fun show, full of pop culture references and most likely destined for PBS distribution in the States. More details as they become available and watch for announcements on the new website here.
This series represents the first phase of a new division of Biscardi Creative Media focused on bringing original programming to television and independent film projects to theatrical release. We’ll have a full announcement on the new division in the coming weeks. Needless to say, we’re really REALLY excited about this new phase of the company.
