"All I can say at this time we have some interesting proposals on the table, and we have not finalized the broadcast end of the deal, what I can say, Make it Happen Productions, a Los Angeles based production company and Billy Frank Creative Director/Executive Producer, have partnered with us to produce the show".
'Make It Happen' is a full-service production company that specializes in fully-executed productions from conception through postproduction. "It's not that bad having your name and project associated with such a great American Icon," Fracalossi said.
AMT Media LLC will offer original episodes of the tour at NATPE Convention January 24-27 at the Mandaly Bay Hotel in Las Vegas. ÂNATPE seems to be the best place to showcase the Tour and show,Â stated Mark Fracalossi Executive Producer. ÂWe feel the exposure we get will be good and lead to the right placement of the showÂ Fracalossi said.

The show will add a new grass roots look to the nations fastest growing card game Texas Hold'em.
