« Part 7: Crazy Color Madrone Burl Part 8 of The Burl Hunter series Part 9: Filthy Riches »

Hey everyone, Just an update. We signed the contract for a new TV show coming out this early 2014. I can not say what network it will be until they start advertising the show. Let me say that I have always held the magazine in high regards my whole life and look forward to working with the network.

Super cool thing is I get to sell all the swag for “The Burl Hunter” this is not the name of the show but it is my AKA. So stay tuned and I will let you know when I know something. The show is about hard working Americans who have unique jobs that are not afraid to get their hand dirty to make a living.

Just a heads up the cameras will be shooting all September so if you want a chance to make it on the show, come for a visit then. Call first. Also if you know of anyone who has a large burl that we can harvest let me know and we may do a show on that.

I will keep all you updated.
Greg
AKA The Burl Hunter

Hey Burl Hunter!

Love the name and can’t wait to see your handiwork on the big screen. I still get comments about the motorcycle stand I made with your choice piece of maple burl.

Best wishes

Premier March 16! They are going to start advertizing the show as soon as that happens I can tell you what channel and the name of the show. It was sure fun with the film crew and directors.

Cool, and good for you! Just don’t let them make you out to be all bitchy like every other TV show does to people.

They have postponed the show but soon. they are finishing up with the editing and they need to advertize for at least 2 weeks. so they have told me sometime next month for the Premier.
I will put out a big announcement when they let me know a firm date. I dont even know the name of the show get. I guess this is TV for you but I am not complaining. I had a lot of fun. Now it is just “wait”. Ug!
