Goldwillow Productions announced today the new reality show based on established music artists. "For The Love of Music" is a show designed on multi-levels: First, to let viewers see their favorite artists in situations they have never been seen before; Second, to bring the live, unscripted reality show atmosphere to the world of music and right down to the artist; and third, to create an on-line community around the entire series. Production will begin immediately and will most likely air next season.
"We're all very excited about this project and are pushing ahead at full steam. It's not everyday a great idea comes down the pike fully financed!" states Karen Oliver.
It is the unlikely show, shot in an unlikely town, in a reality setting - quick - fun and exciting - together, shot in an unlikely format that makes this show unique. Viewers will never get enough and leave wanting more.
The one-hour series will also include behind-the-scenes footage of the pre-party and actual production of the show. The show will also have special features which will cross-over to other media formats, thus creating a world wide access to the show. Audience's can participate via the internet as well, shooting off questions to the artists in an interview type setting. "we are creating an on-line community that will surround the show and create buzz," states Jason Carson of Carsonator.com (a podcaster)
"Bringing in new technology in brand new ways to the music experience is just one of the many exciting levels this show will reach," states Karen Oliver.
