We’ve reached a million views on our YouTube channel!
We’d also like to share some news on a project we’ve been working on for a while. Based on the success of the web series and the positive feedback we’ve gotten, we’ll be developing BBQ with Franklin into a TV series. It will air on KLRU and be distributed nationally to PBS stations early next year. RetailMeNot www.retailmenot.com, the leading marketplace for digital coupons and deals, signed on to be the first sponsor of the TV series.
The TV show will be developed concurrently with the YouTube channel, which was launched in October 2012. The television program will explore the history and culture of BBQ while the online videos continue to focus on instruction. KLRU will work with Austin-based Rocket Science Video to help produce and direct the series.
