To The Editor in Chief–My name is Alan Danzis and I’m the Executive Producer of a new television show pilot called Fate Date. If you have a few moments, I’d like to tell you a little bit about this wonderful show.
The show started as a last minute addition to a struggling college television lineup at Loyola College in 2002. Along with a director and creator named BJ Barretta, and host and head writer named Joe Salvati, myself and two people who would soon become among my best friends, put together a blind date show starring two real life Loyola college students.
Once outside of school, we worked ourselves into the world, but still desired to return to the world of Fate Date. So now, with the vigorous support though, not financial, of a new college television network called The U Network (www.theunetwork.com), we are producing a pilot for a new season of Fate Date.
Why am I writing to you? Because I think the students at your school would be interested in our story. In each episode, we’ll visit a college campus across the country and not only look for “the funny” in an awkward blind date with the cameras rolling, but we’ll also examine the dating scene of each campus. It seems these days a lot of college dating amounts to nothing more than “hooking up.”
But we’re out to prove dating on campus isn’t lost, it’s just been forgotten.
We take two students on an old fashioned blind date to see if we can make fate happen. We’ll also interview real students, on the campus streets, to find out what they think dating life is like and what they think are the chances of our couple.
In essence, we don’t believe in “gotcha” reality shows; we believe in having fun, without making fun (at least not too much). We believe student viewers will enjoy how real our show really is.
I invite you to visit our web-site www.fatedate.tv. Our pilot is finished. If you’d like, I’d be happy to send you a pilot, or you can view our 30 second promo on the site.
Soon, we’ll be approaching sponsors with and without The U Network’s help (and there in lies the fun for a young publicist such as myself). They’ve been extraordinarily supportive of our efforts, especially the CEO Shane Walker, but we’ve also funded this project entirely out of our own pockets and have enlisted countless friends experienced in videography, webmastering and sales/marketing.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to talk to you soon about Fate Date,
Alan M. Danzis
