A new television show about poker is set to hit the air soon. The Small Town Poker Tour is as simple as the title states, blending everyday people with the exciting game of Texas Hold'em - a winning combination.
The tour is set to travel the USA in search of the best amateur poker player, along the way featuring a unique blend of characters that make for some very exciting action. Mark Fracalossi, CEO of AMT Media LLC and Billy Frank, Creative Director/Executive Producer of Make It Happen Productions, have announced a partnership to produce this exciting new show. "Make it Happen Productions has the staff, experience and creativity to bring this show to reality," states Fracalossi. "Billy Frank is the best Creative Director we could find for this project; he brings not only talent to this project but the energy it takes to put the Tour together." Both stated they are very excited about this project, but remain tight lipped about the television deal. "We should have an announcement very soon," Frank said. "We will also have a major sponsorship announement soon.
Make It Happen is a full-service production company that specializes in fully-executed productions from conception through postproduction. It has over two decades of experience and multiple nominations and awards in film and television production.
Make It Happen provided production services in two separate promotional campaigns launching the NFL season on the NFL Network, one featuring Lenny Kravitz, and the other Jessica Simpson. Recently MIH was hired by Warner Brothers Domestic Cable Distribution to produce a long-form presentation tape for UPN's ÂEVEÂ to sell the show for syndication. MIH and ThinkÂ©reative produced multiple image campaigns for all of ESPNÂs Figure Skating programs that will run on both ESPN & ESPN2 for the next two years.
The show will add a new grass roots look to the nation's fastest growing card game Texas Hold'em. It will also raise money for charity along the way. The show will give 100% of the raised money to charity, and the winner of each event will play in the Small Town Poker Tour Finals, for cash and prizes.
The tour will be not of the flashy set productions you see on television. "Our show is unique. The finals will be in a casino, but the rest of the show is a tour of America," Fracalossi stated. The tour will make promotional stops as it travels the country. "Our goal is to make this a fund raising machine for the towns we visit," he said.
