Canseco - Bonaduce Fight

I thought for sure that Jose was going to whip Danny's butt. Even though I pictured Danny to be a dirty fighter. From what Jose said, Danny trained hard for the fight. I think that Jose was holding back and didn't really give it his all knocking Danny out. Maybe they had some sort of arrangement so that neither of them got knocked out?!

As Sports Illustrated wrote, "The 6-foor-4 Canseco jolted the 5-6 Bonaduce a couple of times in round 1 and a couple more in round 3. Bonaduce, who played Danny Partridge on the "The Partridge Family," never went down. Bonaduce predicted he would be knocked out, only to hang in there and land a few body blows on the hulking Canseco. There were few big blasts and most of the crowd of 1,500 at a suburban Philadelphia ice rink started to leave before a decision was announced."

"He hit me harder than I've ever been hit my entire life," Bonaduce said. To Read the full article click on the link in the main header of my post. Maybe this is the start of some GOOD publicity in a good light for Jose, as fans didn't boo him...I am rooting for him 100% - for more reasons than just the fact that I like him, we want to sell our show. He deserves a second chance.

First Pitch of the Year - Go Team!

This week team Canseco had its first pitch! I felt that the pitch went well. I like the fact that this production company was genuinely interested in talking over the possibility of combining forces to develop our idea further. I am not thinking past anything more though, good meeting and I am leaving it to the Universe to deliver. They have done some really impressive shows over the years and have been in business for more than 20 years. This is the type of company that our team would love to join forces with! Someone that has a great reputation, doesn't do a bunch of crap options with a bunch of projects just to have tons of projects on the boards and to get it off the marketplace - but does a deal because they believe in it and that it will go to a series. So, on to the next pitch on Tuesday! This time different pitch, different celeb.

The 2009 Pitching Season Begins!

For starters "Happy New Year!" May 2009 be your money magnet! Or may you be a money magnet in 2009! I have not had time to update my blog. In fact I had become quite lazy about the whole updating my blog thing. I have been working on my next six concepts, in between working out at the gym and getting in the best shape of my life. Now, I just need to lose the small belly I acquired during the last six months! No problem right?

I am starting the new year off with my first pitch meeting at a production company with Jose Canseco. I came up with a solid concept that I am sure will get some attention as well as solid interest. I truly believe he is ready for America to forgive him, and to jump start his career path again.

My second pitch out next week will be with my other talent and partner Eli Davidson. We had a solid pitch record in 2008, with all kinds of interest. We actually passed at one major company for an offer they made (although we loved the woman who believed in us). I know we can do better. We like them, working within production companies deserve a decent paycheck. They are getting paid, and we need to be paid too. We have mortgages just like they do. Its only a matter of time and we will have a deal.

My third project which will soon have the attention of ESPN and MTV is a reality series based with the brand "Girl Powder." Its an amazing snow clothing brand that launched in 2002 and we are creating a competition series with some of the youngest and brightest boarders and skiers in the country. We are having a fun time with all of the casting videos at this point!

My fourth project which really should be my first, is finding my next producing job. Last year I took the year to focus on pitching and making contact with some major Hollywood players. This year I will also focus on the pitches and selling something, but also keeping my skills up and gaining a paycheck on someone else's show! So, I am available for hire!! :)
