It’s 24/7/365 worldwide entertainment providing unprecedented exposure to the millions of performers who never “made it” yet in their quest to reach a mass‐audience; to billions of viewers who are passionate about music and entertainment; to an exploding community active in viewing, sharing and responding to original content of their peers; to major sponsors, advertisers and merchandisers who covet this audience and who look for new, breakthrough vehicles with which to be strategically aligned.
The world is fascinated with reality TV Shows, Talent Competitions, and online User Generated Content. Almost all watch, the majority critique, and some are lucky enough to make it onto a show. A few might even attract a following with their on‐Television or on‐line appearances. However, many talented performers either cannot break through, be seen, or just don’t have the opportunity to be seen or heard. Often, those who do make it onto a competition show are chosen less for their talent and more so by the producer’s image of what will make for an entertaining season. At that, being on or competing on a show alone does not translate to success or compensation for the performer. With TV series, and its economic model, only a limited number of competitors are taken and the competition process is drawn‐out. For those who are able to create a persona online, there are not many vehicles to mainstream opportunities such as Television, Film, Music Contracts, and the like. Premier Entertainment and Productions, Inc (PEP), owners of 15minutesNOW.com, is here to help performers be seen and heard; here to find the next great talent in every field and bring them their “15 minutes of fame” and more.
