These dudes have already produced a fun video on tacos in Dallas. Here’s their pitch:
The Show: Little at Large
Abstract: Dave Little goes around town, man on the street style, interviewing local celebrities, chefs, and musicians, etc. The idea is to show “real” Dallas culture from the perspective of somebody who is involved in actually making it happen – Dave. In between interviews would be profiles of new restaurants, local bars, as well as cool shops (like “We Are 1976” or “Again”). Dave would talk to the owners, insert some humor here and there, and get to the bottom of what makes these places successful – while spotlighting their owners. From the music perspective, he would go to anticipated concerts, interviewing fans and the artists, and do a backstage of the venue. Dave’s band, the Dave Little Meltdown, would do performance “briefs” from All Good Café interspersed between each segment. His songs are very, very funny, so that would add additional humor.
Here the pilot they shot on tacos in Dallas.
Bio’s of all below. Let’s hear it for Dave, Jason, and Jeff!
Dave Little – One of DFW’s most well-known comedians. Has toured nationally and is a regular at the Addison Improv. He also does the Dave Little Meltdown, with Dallas music luminaries Salim Nourallah, Chad Stockslager (King Bucks) and Trey Carmichael (Sorta), among others.
Jason Meyer – PR pro at Cooksey Communications. Works with lots of regional clients in issues management and the professional services industry. Industry experience? I did the opening of Grace Restaurant a few years back in Fort Worth.
Jeff Hays was one of the folks behind the Gordon Keith Show, and is a professional video guy… He’s the creative director of the spots.
Don Cento did the theme music and was a member of Chomsky, Shibboleth and his new project, El Cento. Put together the Bobby Patterson reunion gigs a few years back with Robert Wilonsky and Mike Snider.

First up for your consideration: Richard S. Pollack, president of the Press Club of North Texas. He also writes about food, wine, travel, entertainment, sports, and fashion. Richard is also known for TYPING IN ALL CAPS. Here is his pitch:
This is my audition tape for MAN VS FOOD NATION. It was my second attempt to eat the entire Kenny’s El Jefe Grande Hamburger. I won the contest by eating the most in one hour but didn’ t finish it! I was in the final 12 for the Man vs Food Nation. My one-hour show would start with my introduction of one of the top chefs in Dallas who brings me 5 pounds of his or her food to eat for my EAT ME segment. I could get a celebrity ( Modano,BJ Thomas, Badu) to join me and share the food with me while I interview them!

I have never understood the popularity of chicken wings. The majority of the ones I have tried are just masses of fried dough swimming in a hot or sweet sauce. Sometimes there is even a wad of what looks like chicken meat on the inside.
This Sunday, Super Bowl watchers will consume 1.25 BILLION chicken wings. PETA reports 600 million chickens are killed just to satiate football fans for one day. I’m not a card-carrying PETA member, but of all of the animals we consume, chickens get the shaft. And it makes me crazy when people refuse to eat red meat because they consider the action unethical, but have no problem eating chicken. Especially when you can do a little research and make better choices of the meats you do choose to consume. However, there is nothing good about chicken wings.2 Comments »
Can you believe it’s almost February? If you’ve made it this far without giving up on your new year’s resolutions, then congratulations! Eating healthier has always been a popular one, and though we’ll have to wait a few months for many of the markets to reopen, there are still opportunities to pick up some fresh food.
