Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2013
John Ratzenberger (best known for playing the mailman Cliff Clavin on Cheers) is launching a crowd source campaign today with FundAnything for his brand new television series, 'John Ratzenberger’s American Made.'
A video release on the show and campaign is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zb1qd1oThk
“From the things we need, to the things we want, to the things we dream about— we're going to show you the best of our country’s home grown products," says Ratzenberger. "But more importantly, we'll highlight the remarkable men and women who use their skills and ingenuity to create goods they can proudly call made in the USA."
The show will also empower viewers with a direct and easy path on where to buy the products profiled. The series will be produced with RealityTVStar.com, which Ratzenberger co-founded.
“We chose to crowd fund the initial few episodes for strategic reasons,” said RealityTVStar.com CEO, Jeffrey Solomon. “Crowd funding is an excellent way to mobilize fans and promote our American made corporate partners before the show launches. It's also an excellent way to allow the public to be a part of the show before its release on TV.”
Crowd funding has grown into an extremely successful method to fund creative projects without the bureaucracy of corporate mandates. Ratzenberger's campaign will give donors a chance to be on the show; join John at a VIP events; receive products profiled, and many more opportunities only available to donors. He has already signed on 30+ American-made companies and industry groups.

John is currently a regular on FX's 'Legit,' and has recently appeared on Fox's 'Bones,' CBS's 'CSI,' Lifetime's 'Drop Dead Diva,' and TNT's 'Franklin & Bash.'
