Banking on a trend with Twitter TV

Television Comments (0)

That’s right, a Twitter-based television series is just about ready for pitching (just when you thought your social networking world couldn’t get any better…).

Twitter has teamed up with Reveille Productions and Brillstein Entertainment Partners to mastermind the creation of this fine television show. Producers told the Alternative Press that the show “would harness Twitter to put players on the trail of celebrities in an interactive, competitive format.”

This would all be unscripted, of course, and obviously superior to all other shows on television.

My favorite part of this entire ordeal is that someone was so inspired by Twitter that they developed the show themselves and then went to Twitter to pitch the idea.

Amy Ephron, creator and executive producer, told the Alternative Press that she believes the immediacy of this cultural phenomenon will make the show a success.

This is about all we know of this show. Everyone is being hush-hush about the title and specifics. I guess they want it to be a big surprise when they pitch it to the networks. Soon after, they’ll be ready to head to production.

Hopefully they can get it to production before everyone finds the next best thing and forgets all about Twitter, just as Americans do with most things. First, the cool social networking site was LiveJournal, then MySpace, then Facebook, now Twitter, next what?

While we still don’t know much about this Twitter TV situation, I have a hard time believing it will be successful. With recent developments springing up every day, should anyone bank on a trend?
