Dinah Diva in the Can!

Yay! We are so F$%#ing excited to complete the taping of our first series, Outdishes. We had a blast and worked our butts off this weekend to complete fourteen episodes for your enjoyment this Summer. Watch for teasers and previews coming soon as we begin to hack through the footage. A special thank you to everyone that came out and helped make this a success (even Pepper).
We are in full swing getting our next shows ready to tape. Tell Veronica is next on our list. We are also in the final stages of setting a date with Ronnie Kerr to tape the fitness show. Ugghhh, we really need a title for it.
Happy Monday to everyone!!

Here's Ronnie

Two posts in one day??? Have we gone mad? Here's Ronnie plugging his upcoming show on OutliciousTV and taking you to school on supplements. I'm sure right now he's up in the gym just workin' on his fitness. (I had do say that) Enjoy!

Rock Hard and Tight

OutliciousTV is pumped to announce that we have partnered up with fitness guru Ronnie Kerr (above) to produce a fitness reality show for our network. Ronnie Kerr is a fitness writer for HPM Magazine, and an ACE, NASM, NASM PES, APEX and AFAA certified personal trainer with a truckload of celebrity clients. Not only is Ronnie Kerr gifted physically, he is also a talented actor (appearing in two OutliciousTV shorts directed by Brian Michael Pelletier and countless movies and TV shows) and he is involved with animal rescue.

Watch for this new show this summer! Who knows, we may even have some surprise celebrity guests!

Last night's tech reheasal for Outdishes went great! You all have no idea what you are in for this Summer. As usual, no posts on the weekend. We'll be busy getting Outdishes together.

Eat It!

Just a few more days until we start shooting our first series, Outdishes - with Dinah Diva. Lots o'work to do!! Tonight we are having a tech reheasal to make sure everything goes off without a hitch. Like our new Outdishes logo?

On the website front, we fixed the coding that would open the main site in a new window from our welcome screen. Some pop-up blockers were preventing it from opening and in turn preventing the channel from loading properly on our page. Our site is no good without the channel.

Our news department is picking through leads and will start shooting some stories very shortly. Our awesome new Microphone flag came in. We should put a picture of it up soon. If any of you are in the market for a high-quality custom flag (you know those boxes on a broadcast microphone that display a station's name), contact Impact PBS. I'm sure you can find a cheaper flag than theirs but you get what you pay for.

On the programming side, we have just started to develop a new show that is going to get you pumped! More to come soon.

Once again, visit our MYSPACE and be our friend. And a special shout out to all of our viewers especially in Akron, Ohio.

We're Live!

Yay!! Our website has gone live. (see the preview shot above, thanks Jared) If you came here through you probably noticed you now have two choices at our homepage: the blog (you are reading) or our site. We're going to keep the two choices up there for awhile until we have more content up and running on the channel. Something tells me there will be a fun little preview up next week.

If you notice an strange issues happening with the site, please contact us. We tried to test the site in as many browser types as possible but I'm sure there will still be issues somewhere.

In the coming weeks you will notice a more robust control panel as well as working links for our list of shows. That's it for now. Oh, a quick shout out to our first European visitor from Ipswich, England. TTFN!

We've Got Personality

OutliciousTV would like to welcome another member to our on-air talent team. Jason Boegh has been seen all over TV and film in shows such as Jake In Progress, Monk and The New Partridge Family. Watch for Jason this Summer on OutliciousTV.

We had an exciting sneak peek of our Outdishes logo ready for you today; but, there were some issues with our e-mail server today so I couldn't get them uploaded. Excuses, excuses. We hope you are all having an exciting Tuesday.

The Diva Is Coming

We are pleased to announce our latest programming addition to the OutliciousTV lineup. Outdishes with Dinah Diva! Outdishes is far from your average run of the mill cooking show. Join Dinah Diva as she teaches you how to entertain in a blink of her painted eyes.
On the technical front, we are so close to launching our main site it's crazy. We're just trying to work out some compatibility problems between internet browsers as well as ad display issues. Fun stuff!
In addition to the countries noted on Friday, we would like to give a shout out to the person who stumbled upon us in Entre Rios, Argentina.
Production on Outdishes is slated to start on Sunday and we should have some teasers up for you soon after that. Have a happy Monday.

We're Worldwide!

Yes I know the picture is from Vegas, but it's still pretty.
This week we have started to get hits from China, Venezuela, Canada and the Netherlands Antilles. (I have a feeling the Chinese hits are just bots reading the site). Regardless, we are very happy to see new visitors.

A preview of our brightcove control panel is up on our MYSPACE page. Check out (it's in the left hand column).

Sad News: We had some casting gliches with the project we were supposed to shoot this weekend; however, it may all be fixed with someone even better coming in. I've also heard it is going to rain here in LA on Sunday so that would have messed up our schedule anyway. It never rains in LA this late in April!! We're going to spend our Sunday meeting with some prospective OutliciousTV personalities.

We're also going to look at some green screen equipment this weekend. We'll see how that goes. If everything goes right, we'll have our real website up and running by the end of the weekend.

We're Now On Brightcove

Last night, we finished encoding our two introductory shorts, No Match Found and Getting It Straight and we put them up on Brightcove. Brightcove will be hosting all of our video content. You can see our Brightcove channel HERE or goto Once we launch the new you will no long have to go to our Brightcove channel as it will be integrated into our website bringing you simply an Outlicious internet experience.

Just Another Wednesday

Hey Everyone!! We're busy putting the network together and have started encoding some OutliciousTV short films for our channel (No Match Found and Getting It Straight). Right now they are both to your right and hosted by You Tube; however, most of our new video content will be hosted on Brightcove. Brightcove offers an amazing video hosting service that brings you higher quality video than those other guys. They also increase our revenue potential and allow us to organize our content better. A sample of the Brightcove offerings will be posted when we launch our site soon!!

The News Department is currently working on a few outstanding personalities to interview. We're also hoping to interview some people to join our on-air team. That's it for now!

We Have Our Veronica!

Thanks to everyone who sent in answers to our post a last week that asked you to guess what 80's TV Star will be playing Veronica on our advice show, Tell Veronica. Congrats to Bill T. of Irving, TX for guessing Charlene Tilton. Either you did your research online and discovered Charlene starred in the Los Angeles run of Tony Jerris' play Tell Veronica; or you just took a stab at it since you're from outside Dallas. We'll get your OutliciousTV t-shirt out to you soon.
So get your questions in before we start taping our first episode!! Veronica is dying to give you advice. E-mail today! If you're in the Los Angeles area, you may even be asked to come on the show!!

It's Not What It Looks Like

What a busy weekend! We were busy finding costumes (see above) and scouting locations for the production of our first show. Next Sunday (the 22nd) we will shoot some promos and the opening sequences of it. Once that's edited up, we'll put a teaser out there for you all to see.

In addition to that, our OutliciousTV news department is working hard getting some leads together and interviews lined up. We're also in the process of adding more members to our news team. We may even get access to a three-camera studio to knock out some of our interviews more efficiently.

Our new website may be up and running by the end of the week pending a successful software upgrade. Crossing fingers!
