DESCRIPTION: (from Current TV's press release, January 2011) Current TV announced it will begin production on "Bar Karma," the world's first community developed television series, today, Monday, January 24, at the newly-constructed Ironbound Film Studios in Newark, NJ. Filming for the series will run through the end of March 2011. Created by world-renowned video game designer Will Wright (creator of The Sims and SimCity) and Worldwide Biggies' CEO, Albie Hecht, the 12-episode series creates a new benchmark in television programming by inviting a community of fans to drive the show's content - from story lines to art direction, soundtrack to brand integrations. "Bar Karma," which marks Current TV's entry into live-action scripted original programming, is the first television show to give viewers control of a series before it hits the air. The half-hour program will premiere on Current TV on Friday, February 11 at 10:00 pm/9:00 pm Central.
