The folks at Room 403 Productions are seeking short (3 minutes or less) videos to be aired on primetime television.
Named after a room in the Gloria Swanson Bldg on the Paramount’s lot, Room 403 Productions was founded by David Hurwitz and Paul Cockerill who met working on The Arsenio Hall Show. Hurwitz was Executive Producer on NBC’s Fear Factor, and worked on Comedy Central’s “The Man Show.” Cockerill was West Coast Head of Production at MTV where he embraced the hidden camera genre with the improvisational series Buzzkill. He also served as Executive Producer of England’s #1 comedy series Trigger Happy TV on Comedy Central and was Supervising Producer of ABC Late Night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
I don’t know these guys, but when I heard “Trigger Happy TV,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The Man Show,” I almost hand delivered them my videos (it seems “Viral Video Genius” caught their attention even though he’s such an ass).
What are they after? Funny, fun, witty, cool, physical, silly, comedic sketches, pranks and shocker videos. To be part of the network comedy variety show pilot, send your video URLs with contact information. I recommend sending them your 2-3 favorite clips. And to win favor you can send them videos (not files but URLs) of other creators. Write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If the producers feel it’s a fit, they’ll contact you for additional information and arrange to receive a higher resolution file. Good luck.
