Slim Forsythe's "Live From Nied's Hotel" pilot is a go.
The honky-tonk singer reached his Kickstarter campaign goal of $10,000 to shoot the pilot at the Lawrenceville club where he lives and performs regularly.
Mr. Forsythe will film the first episode of his country music television program on July 19 with house band the Beagle Brothers and guest singer Molly Alphabet.
"My heart is filled with gratitude and joy," he said in a statement.
Working with recording engineer Dino DiStefano (who won a Grammy for his work at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild), he plans to showcase local and national artists with a country/Americana bent.
The plan is to pitch it to local television production teams and push for national syndication.
