A Pledge Drive Treat

The Sound of Young America: TV Pilot from Jesse Thorn on Vimeo.

Here's a pledge drive treat.

Last year, I made a pilot for Current. They were planning an expansion into half hour programming, and were looking for an interview show that spoke to months their demographic. They were willing to do something without claiming any ownership of my IP, and really respected and got what I was up to. It was a great fit.

We put together this pilot (Mark Rinehart produced, ably), but by the time we'd finished, there'd been an administration change at Current, and they ended up with a very different prime-time programming plan. So we had this pilot, but there was nothing they could do with it. The parting was amicable.

We taped two radio interviews -- one with Patton Oswalt, then some later one with Ben Karlin. A few months after that, we wrote and taped some interstitial pieces in a day here in LA, including a mini-interview with the one and only Maria Bamford. I actually think the show came out pretty neat. Enjoy!

Reggie Watts' bravura performance at The Sound of Young America Live! in Portland. I was standing off to the side -- I don't think I've ever seen an audience so wowed by a performer.
