"I Wouldn't Dare to Comment"

Pilot for reality television show to feature Horse Cave, Kentucky. Quoted from our local newspaper:

By GINA KINSLOW/Glasgow Daily Times
The pilot for a reality TV show featuring Horse Cave has been sold to a network.

The announcement was made in a press release issued by Michael Betts and Associates of Franklin, Tenn. on June 3.

The series, "Smalltown Makeover," shot in Horse Cave, will be picked up by PAX TV this fall and will reach an estimated 92 million households, the press release said.

"We had a wonderful conference call through Phoenix Entertainment Group, our media placement partner, (and) PAX basically said they are excited about this and think we can one of their top programs," said Michael Betts, executive producer of the series.

Betts is planning to make a trip to Horse Cave within the next couple of weeks with script writers and producers.

"We're going to spend two days there touring the town ... trying to nail down some of the storylines," he said.

The purpose of the show is to document a small community's efforts to revitalize its downtown area, according to Betts.

The pilot for the show, which features local businessmen Tom Chaney, owner of The Bookstore, and Ken Russell, owner of K&D Department Store, among others, was filmed in early April.

A key element to the pilot was a town hall meeting held at the Horse Cave United Methodist Church in order for the public to express their opinion on what they think the town needs.

How's about burning the majority of it to the ground, salting the ashes and doing an excorcism.

Hey, wait- save one other house, OK!

This will either be interesting or a huge cluster fuck. Who knows.
