It's a GREAT race!

This just in from Pete Berg, producer of The Race, one of ICTV's most popular and successful programs -- check out the national publicity it's been getting!

1. Yesterday, wrote a little blurb about The Race, and we got another GREAT review:
"...the series doesn't circle the globe, but its challenges, drama,
cast and editing are reminiscent of the series that inspired it — so
much so that you'll quickly forget you're watching something that
doesn't have a multi-million dollar budget."

2. There are a few bloggers who have started writing weekly recaps of The Race 2, so that all of the online fans can keep up-to-date with the show:

There have also been several dozen reality tv forums that have active discussions about The Race and The Race 2...

3. An article on "Online Media Cultist" predicts that there will be a big online reality tv hit in the next 6 - 9 months, and cites The Race as an example of a stellar web-based show. (On a side note, I am planning to shoot a brand new, low-budget, web based reality show in the next few months in LA -- so maybe that big reality hit will be my next project! As the author says, "we're set for a paradigm shift in how 'television' is thought of, funded, covered, and viewed."):

I hope you enjoy the links...and also, don't miss Episode 3 tonight.

Once again, I can't thank you enough for your amazing work on The Race 2 -- and judging by the attention we've been getting, it's all really paying off.

Pete Berg
Producer, "The Race 2"

PS: A few people have asked me if anyone is hosting a screening get-together for the episodes on Wednesday nights in Ithaca. Honestly, I don't know, because I'm on the other side of the country. But, if you are hosting such an event, don't hesitate to invite each other over to watch the show! The Race is fun to watch on your own, but way more fun when you watch it with a big group (especially if some of the people don't know
the results).

PPS: Those of you who are in Los Angeles... is anyone interested in getting together to watch the show sometime? Maybe a Race 2 marathon once all five episodes are complete? Let me know!
