SideDish on TV Audition: Dave Little, Jason Meyer, Jeff Hays, Don Cento


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.
