THEBLAZE, WILD WEST PRODUCTIONS AND GO GO LUCKEY ENTERTAINMENT LAUNCH ‘PURSUIT OF THE TRUTH’ TO FIND THE NEXT GREAT DOCUMENTARY FILM

 The 9 Episode Reality Competition Series Will Be Broadcast on TheBlaze Late Spring 2013

 New York, NY, December 5, 2012 — Go Go Luckey Entertainment and Wild West Productions are teaming up with The Blaze to bring you an exciting new competition reality television series. PURSUIT OF THE TRUTH will bring together twenty selected filmmakers from across the country to prove to a panel of expert judges that their project is worthy of the grand prize – financing and worldwide distribution for their feature documentary film idea.

Applications are currently being accepted from filmmakers of all walks of life to be contestants on the new television series. DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION SUBMISSION ENDS JANUARY 31, 2013. A team of experienced producers and executives will be hand selecting twenty of the most compelling contestants to compete on the show. If selected, contestants will be asked to perform a series of tasks during the ten-­‐week production period for our panel of expert judges. Contestants will be asked to not only prove the validity of their idea for a documentary and but also their filmmaking abilities. They will either survive or be eliminated based on that criteria. For example, contestants might be asked to produce a sizzle reel, procure and execute a key interview, or pitch scenes to our panel of judges.

Joel Cheatwood, President and Chief Content Officer for TheBlaze said: “We are excited to continue to expand our programming with producers like Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley and Gary Auerbach. The documentary film, particularly those that seek the truth with no agenda, is an important art form that is struggling to survive in this media environment. We will be looking for stories that simply need to be told.”

Peter Billingsley from Wild West Productions said: “We are thrilled to provide an opportunity for filmmakers. Getting any film beyond the idea stage has become increasingly difficult these days, especially for documentary filmmakers that want to shine a light and make a difference. Our goal is to create a powerful annual platform to help filmmakers tell important and engaging stories.”

Gary Auerbach, founder of Go Go Luckey said: “It has been our privilege to produce a long list of shows for a variety of networks and we are excited to now work on such an important show for TheBlaze. This project has special meaning for Go Go Luckey because it embodies such a worthy cause -­‐ enabling filmmakers to pursue the truth.”

Go Go Luckey will lead the production of the series in cooperation with Wild West Productions and TheBlaze. The nine episode series debuts on TheBlaze in late Spring 2013.
