Potential TV show wants stories of people meeting online, and how we deal with death
Two new web sites are seeking personal stories from people who met online that may be turned into a documentary style series.
The “two new story-driven websites” are “part of a multimedia project which we hope will culminate in a new TV series unlike anything that’s on the air right now,” according to a blog post on Web Lab, the nonprofit think-tank behind the two sites.
Produced by PBS P.O.V. creator Mark N. Weiss and producer Tom Yellin, the show—which has a working title of Stories—“will gather personal stories on a range of issues.”
The two sites that are gathering those personal stories are Meeting Online, which wants “[stories] about the successes and failures of meeting people online,” and How We Die, which “will explore how our most personal experiences have shaped what we believe about death and dying, and about the decisions we make for ourselves, for loved ones, or for patients at the end of life.”
