Dear Friends:

Over the last few months, I have been working on a new and exciting project: a Sunday morning Talk Show with a focus on German and German-American topics: politics, business, sports, arts and culture, entertainment... plus: regional events and a musical guest every week. Frühstück TV brings German and German-American content right into your living room - not on TV, but on a dedicated website at www.fruhstuck.tv, where you can watch live or get videos "on demand", all for free, of course.

Right now, I am trying to raise funds to get Frühstück TV off the ground, and I need your help: I have just launched a Kickstarter project, where you can make a donation in support of Frühstück TV - and get a nice reward. The best thing: Your credit card will only be charged if the entire project gets funded - that means: you are only donating if we can actually get Frühstück TV off the ground. That´s a guarantee that your money will not be wasted. You can support our project by clicking and donating here, or by following this link:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1214997692/fruhstuck-tv-a-german-american-talk-show

On the Kickstarter page, you will find a 10 minute promo video for Frühstück TV. Have a look and see what the show is all about. Keep in mind: this is just a promo, filmed on a low budget, with no musical guest and no audience - all that will come later, once we are going live. One thing, however, will not change: the location: Frühstück TV will broadcast live from the Bierhaus NYC. Tired of the usual studio setting, I decided to bring a serious talk show into a casual setting - after all: a bar is usually where you have the best conversations.

With Frühstück TV, I believe, we have a chance to establish a show with all the content you might care about. As I explain in the video (on the Kickstarter site), my definition of "German-American" includes
  • Chancellor Merkel guiding the Euro zone through a crises that impacts America
  • President Obama visiting Berlin (June 18)
  • 3,500 German companies employing 600,000 Americans all over the US
  • Dirk Nowitzki scoring for the Dallas Mavericks
  • Berlin actress Antje Traute starring in the new "Superman" movie
  • Richard Wagner´s successful "Ring" cycle at the Met
  • the proud 300-year-history of German immigration to America
  • a vast variety of cultural and social German-American clubs in all 50 US states
  • great German-American events like the Steuben Parade in New York and Philadelphia, German Fest in Milwaukee or the legendary Wurstfest in Texas - expect some great reports from there!
You see, my definition of "German-American" topics is wide open. Expect a variety of interesting guests discussing all kinds of current issues. Expect a show that will be informative and entertaining at the same time.

Can I count on your support for Frühstück TV?

If you want to make a donation, please visit our Kickstarter project right away - at this early time of a 45-day-fundraiser, it is extremely important to build momentum and get a good showing off support right away. If you (or someone you know, or a company you know) wants to make a larger donation or become a sponsor of Frühstück TV, please visit this page more information.

Please keep in mind: The established media does not give much attention to German and German-American topics. We can change this by providing our own programming. In this day and age, a Talk Show on the internet can spread fast and will reach interested viewers across the United States in no time. I believe that Frühstück TV will be a huge success - but I need your help to make it happen.

Please consider making a donation. And, please, share this project with all your friends and family.

Thank you!
