I'm trying to get a TV series on late night, on one of the local TV stations. The show's focus is to help independent bands, performers, etc, etc. to get onto TV, to help increase their exposure.
I can get bands and performers interested, easily. However, neither I, nor anyone I've talked with, are really the "sales person" who can approach businesses for ad sponsorship. We had tried this, years ago, but then the economy took its dive, and all our potentials lost interest.
