Yes, another reality tv show. This time it’s in search of the next great director.
Ã¢??16 finalists will be divided into two teams and each group has to produce (and write, and direct, and castÃ¢?Â¦) a short film each week. Fox says that the contestants will be forced to deal with the pitfalls that any major player could face–creative differences, budgetary problems, deadlines, etc.–but that they will also have access to some high-caliber perks, such as the opportunity to collaborate with Industry insiders and big-name celebs.
On the Lot will unfold over two nights a week, with night number one featuring an hourlong “film premiere” episode to screen the teams’ work, which will tackle a different genre each week
The last aspiring Spielberg, Scorsese, Tarantino or Coppola standing will win a studio development deal with DreamWorks. [source]Ã¢?Â
