The Travel Channel Academy gives everyone a great opportunity to take a crack at the TV world.
One of our recent grads has really taken his TCA experience to heart.
A few posts ago, I wrote about Jay Russell, a former South Carolina State Trooper who had gone into business for himself as a private ‘Drug Hunter’. He and his dog work for major corporations and others. They’ll scour work sites and even universities in search of illicit narcotics.
He’s to drugs what Magnum PI was to crime.
We met Jay at one of the NY Travel Channel Academies.
He thought he might like to make a TV series.
So did we.
So we gave him so advice and told him if he could deliver, we would be happy to work with him,
He went back to South Carolina with his video camera and back to work with his KTF (Canine Task Force) dogs. And now, boy has he delivered.
Jay has put his newfound video skills to work, and now we’re busy pitching his show to the networks.
We think there’s a hit here.
We’re all behind it.
Not bad for a recent TCA grad!
