WikiLeaks has announced that founder Julian Assange will be hosting his own television show that features interviews with key political players from around the globe. The theme of the interview show is “the world tomorrow” and is scheduled to begin airing in mid-March.
Assange is planning 10 weekly half-hour episodes where he will explore what he says is the future of our world with political players, thinkers and revolutionaries. He hopes to examine his guests' philosophies and struggles in a deeper way than has been done before.
According to the press release, the program will be shown to over 600 million viewers across cable, satellite and terrestrial broadcast networks based on initial licensing commitments, although no specific networks or providers were listed. A list of planned guests hasn’t been announced as of writing, either.
Readers are encouraged to contact Quick Roll Productions regarding licensing the series in their region. Quick Roll Productions’ website is essentially contentless with only a simple mission statement and contact page. The Whois reveals that the site was created on January 8, 2012.
WikiLeaks as a whole has been under pressure lately as US financial institutions set blockades in place that severely limited their ability to survive. Such financial restrictions bring into question the feasibility of producing a television series altogether, not to mention the nonexistent track record of Quick Roll Productions.
