For the last couple years I've been pitching a concept for a show to various television networks. The idea is a reality based show following five or six roadies for a band. Well, I'm excited to announce that a major network has picked it up, and I will be taking a year off the mission field to spend involved with the creation of the show. I'm not allowed to inform you which major network, but I will tell you it is know by just three or less letters. At this point the show looks like it will be a "Survivor" like show. There will be eight to ten who begin, and each couple weeks the band they work for will vote one off. Talks are also underway with various labels and bands to see which one will be picked. I can tell you a few bands that are up for consideration, knowing that this could change at any point. Those in discussion are Bon Jovi, Vigilantes of Love, Train, P.O.D., Marylin Manson, U2, Celine Dion, Petra, or Carmen.
Sure this might come as a surprise to many of you, but hopefully, you will see this as an excellent opportunity to witness on a whole new level for me. I will be sad to leave the fine students and staff of BFA, but it has always been my dream to live the life of a rock and roll roadie.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to ask. Just don't ask to be on the show or for backstage passes, I don't have the authority yet to grant either of those yet.
Keeping you up to the date,
Ryan D Cordell
