Kimberlie Dykeman is killing two birds with one stone next week…hanging out with “infomercial kings” and LA TV Executives in Vegas, baby! The world-renowned Electronic Retailers Association is holding its 2009 national convention in Las Vegas, and Dykeman is heading with guns blazing to hob-knob with the most powerful leaders in the direct-to-consumer industry… and win the hearts of the decision-makers of Discovery Channel and a few of Hollywood’s strongest names in TV production.
Just this week, Dykeman pinged Steve Jones, Show Runner at Original Productions and Co-developer of Season Two “Pitchmen” on the Discovery Channel, about finding a network for her talk show “The Bigger Picture with Kimberlie Dykeman”. To her surprise, Jones fired back with an invitation to be a VIP guest at the ERA event AND a one-on-one meeting with famed Host/Executive Producer Anthony “Sully” Sullivan, Thom Beers of Original Productions and Discovery Channel executives. On top of that, he asked Dykeman, the little infomercial queen, to audition for a co-hosting role on “Pitchmen”.
Needless to say, Dykeman is on a plane to Vegas to knock it out of the park and create some fabulous memories…after all, IT IS VEGAS, folks!!
