“Looking Forward” A Semi-Finalist in FX Networks’ Pilot Contest

In June 2006, StolenDress Entertainment and Shadow Horse Productions entered the pilot cut of the trailer for their mockumentary, “Looking Forward: The Jason Klamm Story” into the FX Networks/MySpace.com “$50,000 Comedy Competition,” along with 3,500 other entrants.

From those 3,500 entries, only 20 were chosen as semi-finalists by the network – one of which was Looking Forward. The winner would win $50,000 to make a pilot exclusively for FX. Though the online voting, and therefore the final decision, leaned toward another entrant, a cable network’s faith in the comedic potential of Looking Forward had been shown.

As a result, Moder/Durham films has offered their help in securing A-list talent for the Looking Forward pilot. Additionally, John P. Avlon, former Clinton aide and author of the best-seller “Independent Nation,” offered the use of his book as a turning point for the title character, as well as support in finding real-life politicians for cameos.

Additionally, StolenDress and Shadow Horse are currently in talks with several cable outlets about a number of comedy, mockumentary and reality programming concepts, including Looking Forward.
