Remember back in December when Glenn Beck announced he was working on a new reality show with Hollywood mega-star Vince Vaughn?
Well, the groundbreaking show is finally complete, and it airs tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET on TheBlaze TV as part of the network's new fall lineup.
The day, 9/12, marks the second anniversary of TheBlaze TV, and a great expansion of the network's journey into America's entertainment and culture spheres, something Beck has been talking about for years.
"Pursuit of the Truth," which seeks to find the next great storyteller, had over 1,500 applicants competing for the grand prize to have their documentary film produced and distributed internationally.
The show follows the filmmakers as they journey to find the truth regardless of where the facts lead, with no political agenda.
The contestants have to prove they're up to the task to a panel of expert judges: Craig Hatkoff, Peter Billingsley, and Daniel Chalfen. They might be asked to produce a sizzle reel, procure and execute a key interview, or pitch scenes to the judges, and will either survive or be eliminated based on what they produce.
With executive producers Vince Vaughn and Glenn Beck behind the project, the show was produced by Go Go Luckey Entertainment in cooperation with Wild West Productions and TheBlaze.
Gary Auerbach, founder of Go Go Luckey, commented at the time of the original announcement: “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.”
And TheBlaze's chief content officer Joel Cheatwood 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.”
