The TV Producer Contest - Round 4 Scores Posted - Winner Announced
The TV Producer Contest Open to Sims 2 and Sims 3 Contestants
You've just been hired by SimStation, an up and coming television network, and your first month is crucial to make a lasting impact on the higher ups.
To make a good impression, you need to rework some classic/clichéd (whatever you want to call it!) television genres and bring them back to life; a chat show, a cookery programme, a news or sports show and a sitcom.
There are four rounds in this competition, and there is no application:
Please think carefully before joining, but this contest shouldn't be too difficult… it’s just a bit of fun so don’t feel too pressured if you do participate. Just join in and have a bit of fun! You might even surprise yourself - I finished third in the first ever contest!
Your first mission is to come up with a new chat show. This could be a general chat show, or a hobby specific one (such as fishing or music, as examples)
You only need to make as much as the set as you would see on camera, and you don’t need seating for the audience (although this can be added if you want.) You will need somewhere for the host to sit, and at least a two tile sofa/couch for the guest(s) to sit on. You can add any other decorations you want to the set. You should aim to post around 3-5 pictures of the set, showing possible shots the cameramen may use, and an overview of the set (this does not mean an overhead view, it means a shot of the whole set.)
The Sim you need to make for this round is the host of your show. They can be young adult, adult or elder and can be either gender. You should show us a picture of them in their interviewer seat, and provide a short bio (between 2 - 5 sentences) about them; their presenting style, hobbies, personal details etc… You can post a maximum of one other picture of the host, if you would like.
You are not required to (i.e. do not) write an example interview, however you may have pictures of an interview between your host and a created "guest" in your "The Set” pictures to illustrate the camera shots that could be used.
Round One (The Chat Show) - "The Cherry Tree with Flora McDermott"
The Cherry Tree
Hosted by Flora McDermott
This new talk show is all about gardening and discovering and planting new types of flowers and plants.

Flora McDermott grew up in a family of gardeners. Her parents even had her gardening as a baby, and Flora took a natural liking to it. Throughout high school, she became more and more sociable and charismatic, and started a web show about different plants. Her dream has now come true, now that SimStation has offered her her very own talk show.
This is my first contest, so I'm pretty excited. And second, sorry if the pictures are a little grainy =/ I don't want to down load a screen cap program
Jack: Could you imagine anythng better? Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream in a pool on cognac drissled in the most expensive chocolate "Amadei Porcelana" covered in shaved truffles, and topped with 24 carat gold leaf. Liz: I dunno, have you tried a donut in the microwave?
Anna's talk show combines Comedy, Celebrities, Human interests and much much more!
Anna was very comedic from a young age and people adored her. She decided to make herself known - world wide- so she created her own show! Anna has had many guests on her show and a lot of celebrities.
I decided to take a slightly different approach, hope it's okay.
I tried to go for the classic/cliché kinda thing, didn't reeeeally work out ;p
Hosted by Agent GSW
Who is Agent GSW?
Only those part of the Resistance really know her real identity, but what we see on the remains of our televisions is a young female survivor with one heck of an attitude. Before the apocalypse hit, it was believed she was a politician of some sort, ex-intelligence officer, perhaps. It is well-known however, she is an expert markswoman and has inflicted severe damage on the new Government's troops, with the aid of her fellow 'freedom fighters'. She is quite fond of making a mockery of the new leader, and everything he says and does, she's also very, very good at it.
She works for the only station the Government has not located the base for, and therefore hasn't destroyed it - SimStation.
The set, and the show.
Of course, this isn't quite how you'd see it on your TV, it'd be more like this:
Music Talk Show
This show is all about the music and the people who sing/play it.
The host of the music talk show (All About the Music)
She was a singer in the group Sims of Americawhen she was 10. Ever since then she has wanted to involve herself in everything music. She loves to get dressed up and have fun with all of her friends and have a good time. She is 25 years old and this is her first time as a talk show host.
The set is kind of small but gets the job done. It's girly with a small hint of masculinity.
Notes: I made it more like a set placed outdoors rather than in a building...I hope thats ok.
She interviewed Selena Newell a big pop singer for teens.
A fun loving teen that has a lot ahead of her. She just made it big in the music industry. She loves to write when she is not singing. She came from a large family that she is now supporting with her new found fame.
Yvette is warm, and friendly with an easy going charm about her, that instantly puts her guests at ease. Yvette will do just about anything thing to track down and get the interview with authors of all types of genre. Today's guest author Harold Evans could only be reached by satellite. As you can see the studio and Yvette are well equipped to handle it.
This is Japanese Gamer, a father and son talk show that deals with Japanese game developers, gamers, anything that deals with japanese things!
Japanese Gamer opening :
A father and son show that devotes the show to interviews of Japanese game developers and gamers. The Father is Yamanaka Ruchigo, the son is Tatsugo Ruchigo. The mother has died of strange sickness... so they replaced their lives with games! :D
ps if anything is wrong, please let me know! I really want to enter! I hope everything is a-ok now, thanks!
Alissa is a fun loving and happy girl, she loves to make people laugh. She created chit chat because she wanted to see peoples opinions on things and she always wanted to make it big in the world . She dreams of being the next Oprah.
Her set, although small, is very cute and fun which absolutely describes her, She also believes it gives her guests a feeling of warmth.

Welcome to The Other Side "RAPS" Rockin Abnormal Paranormal Society Brant & I started RAPS as a way to communicate with paranormal activity & let the world know about the other side. Some sims do not believe in the paranormal as they have never experienced it for themselves. This show should convince every skeptic out there the paranormal exists. Ghost hunting is our hobby come on the paranormal experience with us.
Welcome our guest ghost Sarah Parker, Where do you haunt? Will you ever stop haunting? These are just some of the questions that will be answered, stay tuned in for the answers to these questions & more....
Your next assignment is to create a new cookery programme that focuses on a host and their particular style of cooking.
You only need to make as much as the set as you would see on camera, and as the show is prerecorded you don’t need seating for the audience. You will need somewhere for the prepare food, so you must have a fridge, sink, oven and at least two tiles of surfaces. You can add any other decorations and appliances you want to the set. You should aim to post around 3-5 pictures of the set, showing possible shots the cameramen may use, and an overview of the set (this does not mean an overhead view, it means a shot of the whole set.)
The Sim you need to make for this round is the host of your show. They can be young adult, adult or elder and can be either gender. You should show us a picture of them in preparing food in their kitchen, and provide a short bio (between 2 - 5 sentences) about them; their presenting style, their favourite type of food, how they got into food, personal details etc… You can post a maximum of two other pictures of the host, if you would like.
Try and come up with a unique idea for your cook's personality; they could be a sweet old lady who loves baking or a young man who teaches food that's quick and easy.
This round will close on Wednesday 15th July 2009.
I would join, but I don't think you're allowed to be in two contests at one time. Right now, I'm participating in Wife Swap. Of course, if you are allowed to be in two contests at one time, count me in! =D
