How to Create, Produce, Distribute and Profit from Your Own TV Show

Eighteen months ago I came up with an idea for a great new reality show. I found a team, put the package together and started making the rounds. And knocking on doors. And leaving messages. And getting really used to hearing the words, “I don’t get it”. See that’s what they say when you are ahead of the times. That’s what happens when you have a really GREAT idea! That’s when I discovered that there was no platform or process that would allow me to PROVE what we really had.


There’s the industry standard way to get your show done, aka “the right way”. Then there’s the NEW WAY!

Caveat: Not all TV is the same. When you produce your own show, you get one thing you rarely get when you work directly with a network or studio – CONTROL! I had an inside view of a major network show, and watched the production staff change 3 times. The producers always called me because I always had just the right person they were trying to cast, but by the end I had to ask, what show is this for? The segments sounded like they should be on Jerry Springer, which wasn’t what I signed up for, for sure! That show didn’t make it!

Years ago when I was negotiating with a major network for my own talk show, there was one particular line that just didn’t sit well with me. It said they could tell me what to say! Those of you who know me understand that I don’t even know what I’m going to say until I say it!!! At every turn the price of success seemed to be sacrificing my brand, my integrity, and my even (dare I say it…) my soul. But you don’t have to do that…


I had spent years in the film industry looking for a break, until one day, I decided to just make my own break! That leap garnered me dozens of awards and trips around the world on the festival circuit for my first indie film, and then there was more. Then when I knew I wanted to do TV, I played it straight, wrote a treatment, a sponsor package, and shopped it around, “the right way”. Three times my shows got swiped and ended up on TV without me. Television can be a tricky business if you don’t know where the minefields are. And, I’ll tell you a secret… TV isn’t just TV anymore! There are multiplatform opportunities that will garner you far more exposure than any straight TV marketing play. The secret is in media mix!

There were a lot of stops and starts, a lot of missteps, and a lot of wasted time and money. Which is all great for you. I’ve already made the mistakes so you don’t have to. Now I’ve mapped out a winning route, the shortest distance of time and money, to get what you want accomplished. I’ve created a talk show, Wake Up!, which aired nationwide on broadcast tv, filled with leading experts in success, motivation, cooking, with real celebrities, and more! And we launched it off the Crowded Reality platform, from idea to on the air in less than 4 months, because its built just to give would be tv showrunners like you a platform to showcase your ideas.
