The Business of Food TV

2010_01_foodtv.jpgThere's actually a business called Cooking Show Pilots that solicits potential shows to the tune of 2,000 responses a month. One concept called Alaska on a Platter is somehow getting interest (even though it doesn't star Sarah Palin, yet), but of course, most proposals are rather amazing/idiotic: "One guy wanted to talk about food as he jumped out of an airplane ... and that wasn't going to fly. Another guy wanted to do a cooking show in the jungle, kill animals right there on the spot. And then he'd eat them. Lots of crazy stuff." [ADN]
