Project Main Details

Shut 'Em Down 
This project is a promo for a proposed new reality competition series offered to reality production companies to partner with in the pitching of the show to networks. The show is a comedy based take on competitive eating. The promo has 2 parts the first is a very somber and serious read of some statistics of obesity. The second part is a "rug pull" moment following the intro where it switches gears to a very upbeat and energetic read. Their is alot of sarcasm and slapstick elements to the proposed show idea. We would like to have a read of the second part that is very serious and archetypal to the reality show dramatic VO standard and then a version that embodies more of a sarcastic and humorous nature. The VO talent that we pick for this pitch will be passed along for top recommendation when the show gets picked up by a network and goes into production. We have very little budget at this stage and our donating all of our time as crew, editors, graphics, writers, and directors. We have a flat fee of $100 for the talent that we choose for this pitch.

Part 1

• 60 Million Americans,
20 years and older are obese.

• Overeating is the main cause of obesity.

• There are now dozens of weight loss reality shows.

Part 2

• THIS is NOT one of them!!

• Watch what happens when we follow people who's personalities are as BIG as their appetites!!

• Follow them as their lives are forever changed by...... the world of professional competitive eating!!!!!

• Professional competitive eating is a multi million dollar industry where the champions enjoy great profits and lucrative endorsement deals!!

• Now THESE people want in!!

• Leading the team of contestants is "Coach Big Ken"; a big man out to shut down any and all buffets after personally being banned from every buffet in his hometown.

• Big Ken's plan of revenge is simple:
First: Assemble a team of people who love to eat and want to make a career out of it!

Second: Train them by taking them to all you can eat buffets and eating contests!!

• After they shut down a buffet or eating contest Ken has a meeting with the team to find out who was the weakest link.

Third: Survive elimination and be the last man standing!!!

• The last remaining contestant will enjoy a cash prize of $20,000 and an all expenses paid trip to Las Vegas, the buffet capital of the world. They will enjoy all you can eat food and tryout for the big leagues at the International Federation of Competitive Eating US open!!
