Vince Vaughn's newest collaborator? Apparently...Glenn Beck. According to Indiewire, the actor is teaming up with the conservative media personality to create a new reality series competition for documentary filmmakers, titled Pursuit of the Truth. The series will feature 20 filmmakers competing for financing and distribution of their respective films.
From the show's website:
Our team of experienced producers and executives will be hand selecting twenty of the most compelling contestants to compete on the show. If selected, contestants will be asked to perform a series of tasks during the ten-week production period for our panel of expert judges. Contestants will be asked to not only prove the validity of their idea for a documentary but also their film-making abilities. They will either survive or be eliminated based on the criterion. For example. contestants might be asked to produce a sizzle reel, procure and execute a key interview, or pitch scenes to our panel of judges.
Additionally, Beck said on his radio show that, in a contestant's entry, he'd "love to see something on the Federal Reserve, the game that’s being played there" and "something on why capitalism is actually a good thing, why it’s not a bad thing. I’m looking for somebody that really wants to change the course of America by telling the truth that you think is never, ever told."
The series will air on TheBlaze TV in Spring 2013, which is the subscription network that Beck owns. A Vaughn and Beck collaboration may seem strange at first, but it's actually not quite - Vaughn was an vocal Ron Paul supporter during the past election, and Beck has been known to praise Paul in the past.
