Improv-A-Ganza Updates (Videos, Premiere Date, Cast List Changes, Wayne Confirmation, Tapings)

current mood: calm

Today I received a phone call... from the producer of Improv-A-Ganza! Let me tell you, I didn't see that one coming. The guy was very nice, and politely asked me to remove the YouTube video containing the clip from the 'pilot', and to also clarify on my channel and forthcoming Improv-A-Ganza Online site that they were unofficial. No biggie.

However, he allowed me to retain the MGM promos, as they alone have been creating quite a stir with people and creating a lot of positive interest for the new show. He is also going to hook me up with the people from GSN to make sure I can keep posting the GSN commercials (as I have one up currently, and three more saved for later posting).

I will, of course, still be posting videos of my show reviews in a week or so for those interested in what the shows were like, who participated, what games were played, what the setup of the stage was, etc...

The good news is, the producer (I'm not going to give out his name for privacy reasons) has asked if I would like to work with them, and of course, I agreed. So he said that he would be sending me things I could use for the site and YouTube channel occasionally - sort of 'slip me things' that I can use with their permission, before anyone else has it. I don't know what all of this consists of, but I think it's rather exciting and I cannot wait to see what he sends me.

I also learned a few things between him and a few articles that were posted today. First off, the show is set to premiere on March 28th (which is a Monday). It will have a prime-time slot (exact time is not yet known). So this is VERY good for the show! Being in a good time slot gives it a better chance to have more viewings. And the producer did stress to me that, cable or no cable, it will depend heavily on the success of the first season on whether or not it continues. So fingers crossed! :)

I also learned that there has been a slight change in the cast list. Allison Bosma will *not* be a part of the show - but Sean Masterson will! Yay! (I'm personally very happy about this. Now if only Julie was there!) AND, a bit of a disappointment to some folks - Wayne is not going to be involved in the show in any way, shape, or form. No guest spot. I asked why, and what I had surmised turned out to hit the nail on the head - Wayne is off doing his own thing, hasn't really bothered to keep in contact with the others or show any interest, and is busy with his own show. So, that's that.

And there's also supposed to be 20 tapings, not 17, even though only 17 are being shown for available tickets. (Yeah, I'm as confused as you on that one.)

Anyway, that's the update! I hope everyone is as excited for the new show as I am! ^_^

PS - Here's the other MGM promo. Contains a few different clips than the other one, and is in higher quality.

You're most welcome, glad that you're excited!! Hopefully the episodes will be available one way or another. Since the producer and GSN are teaming up with me and my sites, I doubt I'll be able to directly link to downloads on them (unless I can get permission), but I might be able to upload material on GPN, or through here, or on WTATA, etc. I'll find a way, if I can.

And yes, it should be very similar to Improv Allstars. :)
