The Action On Film Channel (The AOFC) has recently signed celebrity guest Kim Coates, star of the hit cable series, Sons Of Anarchy, Resident Evil, The Island, Blackhawk Down and Open Range, as its newest celebrity host for the exciting television series which will debut on NBC Late Night beginning March 19, 2011.
The AOF Channel is a high octane, celebrity driven episodic television series based on the hugely successful Action On Film International Film Festivals which are now in their seventh season. Show creator Del Weston said, 'With major changes in what people are seeing and how they are seeing it, The AOF Channel is poised to make a huge impact in both the independent film market and in the lives of the people who create independent film."
For viewers who love action, the AOF Channel promises to deliver films and projects from all over the globe from filmmakers who have created some of the most powerful and exciting films ever. In keeping with its vision of high quality, the AOF has not only signed on actors such as Kim Coates but the show's hosts have interviewed superstar athletes such as NFL greats Tony Gonzalez and Michael Strahan, the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell and many other notable sports legends. A number of other special guests make their appearances in the first season of the show which will begin on Saturday March 19, 2011 after Saturday Night Live but before Poker After Dark on NBC in the lucrative Los Angeles market.
In addition to action films, celebrities and special guests, viewers will also be treated to cutting edge tech item reviews, movie and new DVD release news and reviews and the Official Action On Film Top 100 Action Films of All Time List. Hosts for the Tech, Movie and Game Reviews include Kate Logan and actress and best selling author Shelene Antanacio.
Doug Fawell, executive producer of the channel said, 'There has never been a better time to bring the independent market to the mainstream broadcast television viewer. The combination of celebrity, high quality programming and people's ability to watch whatever they want whenever they want via sophisticated delivery systems is an amazing opportunity for viewers, advertisers and broadcasters as well. We are very excited about the possibilities for this show."
In his first outing as a celebrity interviewer, Coates tackles veteran television and film actor Nick Mancuso, star of Under Siege with Steven Seagal, Rapid Fire with Brandon Lee, The Ex and over 100 films and television programs including the hit series Stingray to his credit. Other notable actors, producers, directors and insiders have been scheduled or already taped for season one with the star of the hit cable series, 'Sons of Anarchy'.
Weston went on to say, 'The AOF Festival has become a huge hit with live audiences for seven years, it was time to expand the festival into broadcast television and to allow millions of fans to watch in the comfort of their own homes what tens of thousands have already seen during our live events and screenings." Previous guests and award winners of the AOF Festival have included Talia Shire, John Savage, Bill Duke, Michael Madsen, Deborah Kara Unger, Morgan Sheppard and many others.
While action is the focus of the channel, the producers of the show have lined up an extensive schedule of dramas, comedy, experimental and documentary films and shorts as well.
