VENTURA, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2004
Halo Studios announced today it has begun pre-production on an unscripted ÂrealityÂ based television show ÂThe EntrepreneurÂ, whereby entrepreneurs from around the country submit their business plans or executive summaries for their chance to win start-up capital that could total up to $1 million and possibly a distribution deal with a major retailer.
ÂThe EntrepreneurÂ is expected to air 10-episodes in its first season and will showcase young entrepreneurs as they are put through Âreal-lifeÂ challenges by a panel of celebrity judges. The show will feature three regular panelists, weekly guest panelists, which include venture capitalists, business tycoons and a world famous entrepreneur serving as the showÂs cornerstone decision maker.
Each week, the contestants navigate through a series of tasks in an effort to bring their product to the next level. Through an elimination process, only one company will be left standing. ÂThe whole idea behind the show is not only to entertain, but to educate young professionals on what itÂs really like out in the business world. The investing community has changed substantially over the last few years, which has created a difficult environment for young professionals to get their companies off the ground,Â according to the companyÂs Executive Producer, Marc Angell, ÂWe hope to bring some of these upstarts to the forefront by way of prime-time television while providing an entertaining show for the viewer.Â
Anson Williams, star of televisionÂs ÂHappy DaysÂ, joins the show as producer. Known not only for his success on the television show ÂHappy DaysÂ, Anson is also a very successful television director and producer on such shows as ÂLizzie McGuireÂ, ÂCharmedÂ, ÂMelrose PlaceÂ, ÂL.A. LawÂ, ÂStar TrekÂ, and many others. Most recently as a partner of StarMaker Products, Anson has become a successful entrepreneur by bringing a line of skin care products which are highly praised and long-time favorites of Hollywood professionals and insiders, to the consumer.
ÂThe EntrepreneurÂ is expected to premiere early to mid 2005. A network deal has yet to be announced. Halo Studios is an early-stage entertainment production company based in Ventura, California.
