This project has been in the works for over 2 years now. We’ve faced numerous setbacks and delays along the road.
Once we had finally lined up all the on-screen “talent”, and I use quotes around talent because I just can’t get used to being referred to as the “talent”, our host got a real acting job and moved to BC. She’s since appeared in several tv Movies, at least one big screen movie working with the likes of Robert Redford and Shia LaBeouf! Several tv commercials. We miss you Jen, but wish you all the best in your continued success. You can check out her IMDB page right here.
If Jennifer hadn’t moved on, we would never have found the lovely Ashley Campbell who now joins co-host and full time pro David Grandy and myself to anchor our little TV experiment. Ashley is a ball of energy and I’m sure you’ll enjoy watching her wrangle the cats that are Dave and I during some of our debates. 🙂
After a lengthy delay during the Eastling update to HD production the pieces finally started falling together a few months ago and we got a brand new set built just for us and we got to spend some time in the studio rehearsing and taping segments. We have 6 episodes taped and the first one airs this coming Wednesday evening on Eastlink Channel 10 or for HD Channel 610 at 8:30pm AST.
We had a lot of fun making these first episodes and although I’m sure you can tell we were all a little stiff and more than a bit nervous for the first one or two, I hope you can stick with us and enjoy them all. Hopefully we are invited back to continue taping new episodes for a long time to come. We did have a blast taping them and I forgot how much I enjoyed talking about my hobby turned second full time job.
I hope you enjoy watching it as much I enjoyed making it!
