Morgan Farms Sought For TV Series



Posted April 18, 2002
Bruce Carroll Productions / At-A-Gallop Broadcast Group, A Broadcast Production Company is currently seeking Morgan Farms and Ranches to be featured in their upcoming series "Morgans: A Proud Breed". This series will give the Morgan Breed the national media attention it deserves. The program will air on the RFD-TV channel.

RFD-TV is a popular and horse friendly free channel on the DISH Network and DirecTV satellite dish networks. Between these two satellite networks (DISH Network & DirecTV) RFD-TV is now available in over 17 million households in the United States and Canada.

"Morgans: A Proud Breed" is currently being scheduled for 26 half hour episodes. Each episode will feature a Morgan related farm, ranch or trainer. They will be the sole subject matter of the episode. Each weekly episode will air five times in a rotation during that given week. This means that the farm, ranch or trainer will get two hours of nationally syndicated television exposure. The series is slated to start to air in late fall of 2002.

"Already we are getting a tremendous response from the Morgan community and have already started signing up farms for the series" states Bruce E. Carroll, the executive producer of the program. "I believe that the enthusiasm and passion these people have for the breed will come across the television screen and will generate excitement from the general viewing public. I am really looking forward to producing this series"

There is a production fee to be featured in Morgans: A Proud Breed. The costs are dependent on available shooting days, transportation and crew costs. A large group of Morgan breeders and trainers in the New England area started the process and is helping Bruce Carroll Productions get a number of shoots close to each other, thus bringing the costs down to being quite reasonable for everyone. Even if your farm or ranch is not featured in the program everyone who is involved with Morgans will benefit from media exposure that this series will generate.

Bruce Carroll Productions / At-A-Gallop Broadcast Group is also going to be filming the New England Regional Morgan Show in July for a two hour special of their upcoming program series HorseShow America. And they will also doing a one hour documentary on the University of Vermont Morgan Horse Farm.

Farms, ranches and trainers are encouraged to contact Bruce Carroll Productions to find out more information and episode availability. Contact via e-mail at brucec@brucecarrollfilms.com or by calling 503-547-0240. Please note that shooting dates and times are extremely limited.
