Bob Shallit reports that a local film company is holding auditions Saturday for a new local entertainment and nightlife show called “Up All Nite” that will be debuting on April 23.
“It’s ‘Entertainment Tonight’ meets ‘TMZ,’ ” says executive producer Roxanne Avent.
Isn’t that just called “TMZ”? Producers are seeking a female lead to co-host with Sac native Craig Jackson, host of VH1’s “I Love Money,” which I haven’t seen and which I kind of wish I didn’t know existed. Or it is genius, I can’t tell. They are also seeking a score of “reporters” to cover Sacto nightlife. Anybody trying out?
I like to poke fun, but being a major TV junkie, I know I’m going to watch this when/if it makes it to air. I hope that the DTV switch will bring more odd local programming like this, but so far DTV is sort of a bust, IMHO (programming-wise). There are some good developments though, and this sounds like it could be a full post, so stay tuned for my reviews of local TV programming after the DTV switch…
