‘Luck is what happens with preparation meets opportunity.’ Yeah, you’ve seen that on some poster near the HR department. But it’s true. And JEFF AIELLO is living proof. He’s a promo pro who’s written, produced and managed at such great stations as WFAA in Dallas, KPIX in SF, FOX in Dallas, WBTV in Charlotte and was CSD at Disney’s KFSN in Fresno. That Disney connection morphed into him producing a show on the Live Well Network. Yes, making the show was even more fun than promoting them. When Live Well said adieu, his prodco had decided to push their documentary side in addition to their commercial and industrial work. Through a series of events, Jeff met a man who had purchased a photo at a central Cali sale and the picture was of…Billy the Kid. Yes, you’ve seen that story all over media. At one time, it was out trending Lamar Odam, baseball, and football on social sites. Wow. And you might have seen the doc, Billy the Kid New Evidence, on National Geographic Channel. Yes, the one narrated by Kevin Costner. Telling the story of how to prove a photo was a real one takes real talent. Jeff loved the production and, as that first sentence asserts, has led to his next project, which you’ll find out about as soon as all the ducks are in a row. In the meantime, check out the show – available online. And send Jeff a huge, Wild West Well Dunne! So proud of him! 


For all you Simpson’s fans out there, here’s the opportunity of a lifetime – the auction of Sam Simon’s personal collection from the series. Thanks to Sothebys, you can own any number of the most wonderful art work, items or cels. Starts October 22 and details are here.


Wish the NY Television Festival was on this year’s itinerary. They kicked it off with a wonderful Manhattan Special Event, which no doubt made the Tribune folks very happy. Great show which you should be catching. Look for GRIFFIN DUNNE. Shameless family plug.

JEFF AIELLO has blasted through the marketing ranks and is now a show runner – and writer and producer and editor – for a series that’s landed his show on air in Top 10 markets. How cool is that!  Jeff has been CSD at Disney’s Fresno operation KFSN, and has worked at KTVK in Phoenix and WBTV in Charlotte, all in the creative services area of things. For the last six months +, he’s been doing KFSN’s CSD duties plus the show and now, he’s going to have a moment to breathe and focus on MOTION. That’s the name of the show – MOTION – and it’s all about the love of being outdoors. Outdoor activity is Jeff’s passion, so the show is one big win-win situation. This is part of Disney’s HD efforts, christened Live Well, Jeff has been traveling to make the show in such spots as Hawaii, NC’s Outer Banks as well as Alaska. Well Dunne! Jeff.

And  yes, the CSD slot at KFSN is open. As is the Program slot at Live Well.

Kudos to ABC for putting the pilot to No Ordinary Family on their website. Great marketing move to tempt the eyeballs in advance of the debut. However, the peek was limited to the first 50,000 and by the time I got around to it yesterday, I believe it was all gone. Shame…since I adore star Michael Chiklis.

Tennis fans – the US OPEN is on the horizon. Next Monday they start swinging in earnest. Tennis pro and commentator GUY DAVID has a blog you should check out. Guy Talks Tennis gives you the pro’s inside view of the action. And yes, all you at The Tennis Channel and ESPN2 should scoop him up – he’s a dynamite writer. The Aussie hails from Adelaide and has a degree in communications from Charleston Southern in the good ol’ USA.
