Each week, viewers will get to watch as two inventions go from idea to reality, and even get to see how successful the product launches have been for the inventions.
The premiere spotlighted the bendable power strip, Pivot Power, and a new approach to straining food, which was concocted by a middle-class mom.
When he found out they were out there, with signs protesting the cruel treatment of ducks to make the dish, he shouted to them through the windows.
"That's too bad for you!" he shouted. "I'm serving a lot of foie gras tonight."
'Ludo Bites America' (Tue., 9PM ET on SUND) follows the pair on their adventure, and this week found them in Denver.
!!!BLOOD AND GORE ALERT!!!
Where Ludo not only killed and then butchered a 1,200-lb buffalo, he also chowed down on its raw, warm -- possibly still-beating -- heart.
You can put on your overpriced, ugly ski boots and over-sized sunglasses while you pet your matchbox-sized dog -- pretending you're the up and coming star of a pretentious art house flick without leaving your living room. Sundance Selects is all set to send films from the 2010 Sundance Film Festival to a national audience for the first time.
You'll also get a first hand look at some of the live events that take place during the fest, as the on demand service "gives film lovers coast-to-coast the opportunity to experience a major film festival as it happens."
- The Cinematical crew is staying at Sundance until the bitter end. Check out their Sundance in 60 Seconds for Friday, January 23.
- I've been hearing a lot about the new Lil' Wayne documentary and it sounds really interesting. Check out what Cinematical has to say about The Carter.
- John Krasinski is more than the adorable Jim Halpert on The Office; he's also a budding director. He premiered his first film, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men at Sundance. Jim Rocchi got a chance to interview him. Check it out here.
- Another movie that premiered at Sundance that I'm excited about is Paper Heart. Starring Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi. It's both a comedy about a documentary and a documentary about a comedy, if that makes sense. Cinematical explains it all in their review.
- Hey! Oscar nominations were this week! Check out what gott snubbed!
- Cinematical is at Sundance and writer Eric Snyder outs fellow blogger, Defamer's Stu Van Airsdale as a joke thief. FACT: Cold weather and Mormons bring out the worst in people.
- So what do you make of the whole "Joaquin Phoenix as a rapper" thing? Personally, I think it's a joke or an over-extended performance piece. Regardless, Casey Affleck is making a documentary about Phoenix's quest. Share your thoughts over on Cinematical.
- If freezing your ass off in your own town isn't enough for you, you can imagine what you would be doing while freezing your ass off in Park City, Utah when you read Sundance in 60 Seconds.
- After seeing a trailer, I twittered that I couldn't think of a movie more unappealing than Bride Wars. I quickly got a reply from a movie reviewer friend who said, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Trust me." See if she was right when Cinematical reviews Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
- January is pretty much a dead zone for movies. Cinematical was able to find seven decent ones, though. Go figure. Check out the Cinematical Seven: Great January Movies.
Can we save the Earth through music?
Of course not, don't be stupid. However, that doesn't mean you can't catch the twenty-four hour Live Earth global concert series on TV starting this Saturday, July 7.
Here's a list of channels that will be covering the event:
NBC: 8:00 p.m to 11:00
BRAVO: 9:00 a.m. on July 7 through 2:30 a.m. on July 8
UNI HD: 4:00 a.m. on July 7 through 2:00 a.m. on July 8
SUNDANCE: 4:00 a.m. on July 7 through 2:00 a.m. on July 8
MSNBC: intermittent coverage throughout
CNBC: 7:00 p.m. on July 7 through 2:00 a.m. on July 8
TELEMUNDO: 7:00 p.m. through 8:00 p.m.
MUN2: 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
We've been telling you about NBC Universal and News Corp's new YouTube-esque video service for awhile now, and today The Hollywood Reporter has news that the service has added the following channels to its lineup:
- Fuel TV
- Sundance Channel
I've never used Pipeline, the news video service that CNN has incorporate into its web site. I think I went to the site one time to check it out, but you had to register or had to pay for it or something so I didn't do it. But it has received great reviews, and tomorrow we'll be able to see what the fuss is about.
Pipeline will be free to everyone tomorrow (though I'm not sure if you'll have to register first). And they'll have some big stories covered: the Academy Award nominations at 8:30 in the morning, coverage of the Sundance Film Festival, and President Bush's State of the Union Address at 9pm. Plus, I'm sure they'll be live coverage of breaking news and press conferences all day long, not to mention whatever Paris Hilton is up to.

So I was poking around the ol' iTunes yesterday, and what do you know, they had just added shows from the Sundance Channel.
"Hey, ma!" I yelled, "we done got ourselves some Sundance programming on the iTunes!"
"Yee ha!" she screamed, tossing off her bonnet and almost knocking over her butter churner. As soon as Bessie Ellie Mary Ellen May gets back from the Maple Syrup and Baptism Festival we'll download ourselves some episodes!"
"If only pa were alive to see this," I sighed. "Why did he have to taunt that rabid goat with a stick?"
At any rate, you can now find a few Sundance shows on iTunes. The shows are all of the "reality" variety, including documentaries The Hill and One Punk Under God, and investigations into real-life dramas such as The Staircase and The First Amendment Project.
A panel of experts from both networks will choose the best submissions and post them online. Fans will be able to vote for their favorites on both websites. One winner will be chosen each week beginning Oct. 23rd. After eight weeks, the winners will be shown on a one hour special on the Sci-Fi channel. The final grand prize winner will be flown to New York to pitch a movie to Sci-Fi executives. Hopefully it won't be Mansquito 2: Electric Boogaloo. Although, if they can get Corin Nemec again, I'll still watch.
The series debuts June 12 at 9 p.m. on VH1 and then airs again on Sundance Channel on June 16 at 8 p.m.
