I have gotten a second pitch from New Media Strategies about Discovery Channel’s My War Diary series (disclosure: NMS is a PR firm that does online communications work for various clients. I also work at a PR firm doing online communications).
The pitch wasn’t bad (although the guy pitching me didn’t disclose the fact that he was working at a PR firm being paid by Discovery Communications), and I think the concept for My War Diary (a television program completely made up of organic video from theater submitted by Soldiers) is very cool.
My open question to NMS though — this is the second pitch for the series I have received in 4 months. Are Soldiers not submitting video?
If you have more questions about My War Diary, e-mail Discovery Communications.
