Hi all! It’s been a while, huh? Sorry about that. While not much has been going on in that needs reporting, much has been going on. I’m just working, day by day, on our Israel episodes. And on something else. Something I’ve been thinking about for a long time, and praying novena after novena about it. (You know me, I like novenas!)
Tomorrow is the Feast of the Immaculat Conception, and I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you about our next project and ask for your prayers.
After much prayer and consideration, we’ve decided to pitch a revised version of The Faithful Traveler to secular networks.
While I loved creating a purely Catholic version of the show, because that is what I know by heart, our experience with EWTN just didn’t work out the way we’d hoped. So, we thought w’d give the show one last shot. Perhaps, we thought, God wants us to try something different?
So, we’re pitching the show to secular networks. Networks like OWN, the Travel Channel, Nat Geo, and others. But in order to make the show appeal to secular networks, we opened up the concept to religions other than Catholicism. The show will be the same—learning about why people do what they do in faith. We’d just cover other religions, too. It could be really interesting, I think. And think about all the amazing places we could go! Plus, it would give us an opportunity to teach people about one another, and to, hopefully, encourage respect and charity among people of different faiths and creeds. Always a good thing.
Whatever the end result, I am praying that God’s will be done. Will you join me in this prayer? Please ask Our Lady to guide us in our decision making.
I sent a pitch letter off to an agent yesterday, along with this video clip above. A “sizzle reel”, or teaser for the new show. Let me know what you think. And, of course, I’ll let you know what happens.
And in the meantime, I wish you all a blessed Christmas (if that’s what you celebrate) or a Happy Hannukah (if that’s what you celebrate), and a Happy new year to all!
