There are excellent existing channels on cable or satellite to get our B movie fix. However, we deserve more. Typically we have to set our DVR for late night or wait a week for a shark, zombie, creature, or horror and it can feel like eternity sometimes. Just a dream but maybe a few producers can get together to create the B Movie channel?
Why not? I asked Lloyd Kaufman how he got his Troma Channel on Comcast. There are three important factors I was told. 35 years of studio experience, Yale degree, and groveling. I’ll take care of the groveling. Combined studio experience is probably over a century more than needed and finally equal or greater than a Yale degree…done!
Next is to put the plan in action:
Once the channel is live why not add some series to air?
‘Writers on the Storm’ Several writers at a coffee shop with their laptops type and brainstorm new movie ideas and scenes.
‘Director’s Cut’ Several directors at a martini bar have laughs ripping on the writers and their work.
‘The Producers Corner’ Several producers hang out at a smoke shop with cigars while determining which script they will produce and which director to hire.
‘Youngbloods’ Premiere of a young director or producers first feature length film.
‘Casting Call’ A show that will share information on new films auditioning for cast members.
The fans of course would have a big part of what movies are aired and when. Here’s just an example of a day’s schedule.
