Syd Butler (Les Savy Fav, Frenchkiss Records) has partnered with actor-comedian David Cross and The Orchard Video Network to launch FKR.TV
FKR.TV will focus primarily on original creative content with five new weekly shows, but will also include music videos, rare live performances by FKR artists, and unique content from the Frenchkiss archives.
first line-up of shows:
Song Of the Wild, a show that was created/written by Les Savy Fav frontman Tim Harrington and features David Cross, is about five musicians stranded in the forest, singing to survive. Think a mix between Hunger Games and American Idol.
The cast of Song of the Wild features David Cross, Gavin McInnes (Rooster NY, Street Carnage) Tim Harrington (Les Savy Fav, Beardo) performance artist Jibz Cameron, Keith Poulson (star of Nick Offerson’s forthcoming movie, Somebody Up There Likes Me) Jayson Green (Violent Bullshit, Panthers,) and Grace Lee.
What happened when we dropped five aspiring pop stars in the middle of the unforgiving wilderness for 30 days? We’ll see when they answer the Song of the Wild. Produced by: Last Pictures
Blowing Up with Nadia features sports-obsessed actress/ comedian Nadja Dajani who interviews professional athletes/musicians. Including The Beasty Boys member, AD Rock.
Hundredaires are two hipsters who got bored with Brooklyn and Portland, OR, so they moved to Portland, Maine. Will they ever find that unattainable cool? Produced by Two Penguins.
This One Time… features short stories that are incarnated and reenacted as puppets.
Five Questions with a Five-Year-Old stars Ms. Lyla Butler, a five-year-old wunderkind who asks artists/celebrities five questions about philosophy and deep political issues, like “What’s your favorite animal?”
And more to come…
