Challenge

Create a reality/competition TV show centered around tailgating at NFL games where the fans are the stars.

Solution

With no budget, a small crew and stand up comics serving as the on-camera “refs,” we interviewed fans from the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins in a head to head match up to determine which city has the best tailgate. The three main criteria were: custom vehicles, food/spreads and the characters. Co-Producer Bill Heneghan and actress Valarie Linn served as studio hosts to tie the show together. The full 22 minute pilot was pitched to the NFL Network and other Cable networks… still waiting for a buyer. The show is not yet dead, it just smells funny.
