TV NATION NEWSLETTER January 29, 1997
Dear Friends, Fans and CEOs -
Well, another year done - and still no "TV Nation"! Here's what the future looks like:
- I am currently developing a new show for Columbia Tri-Star Television. More on that
- The BBC has raised all the money for a new season (8 episodes) of "TV Nation" from
networks in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and France. As soon as an American network is found (and Columbia Tri-Star gives its blessing) we'll be back on the air,
possibly late summer or fall.
- Comedy Central is currently airing all the episodes from the NBC and Fox years
(plus a few extra pieces which aired on the BBC). The ratings came in for
the first week of "TV Nation" on Comedy Central and they were incredible!
- Hey, that book of mine, "Downsize This," made it on the New York Times best seller
list for four weeks. Thanks to all who read it!
- I am currently editing a documentary I shot while on my book tour. Look for it
later this year.
