Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze announced this morning that the media company would be teaming up with Wild West Productions and Go Go Luckey Entertainment to launch ‘Pursuit Of The Truth’, a new reality series to find the next great documentary film. The series will bring together twenty selected filmmakers from across the country to prove to a panel of expert judges that their project is worthy of the grand prize – financing and worldwide distribution for their feature documentary film idea.

Applications are currently being accepted from filmmakers of all walks of life to be contestants on the new television series, with a deadline of January 31st, 2013.

A team of experienced producers and executives will be hand selecting twenty of the most compelling contestants to compete on the show. Contestants will be asked to perform a series of tasks during the ten-­‐week production period for our panel of expert judges. They will be asked to not only prove the validity of their idea for a documentary and but also their filmmaking abilities. They will either survive or be eliminated based on that criteria.

Wild West Productions is an American film, television and entertainment production company founded in 2005 by leading actor, writer and producer Vince Vaughn. Go Go Luckey Entertainment, founded by Gary and Julie Auerbauch, is a Los Angeles based production company specializing in reality and scripted television.

“We are excited to continue to expand our programming with producers like Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley and Gary Auerbach,” said Joel Cheatwood, President and Chief Creative Officer for TheBlaze. “The documentary film, particularly those that seek the truth with no agenda, is an important art form that is struggling to survive in this media environment.”

“We will be looking for stories that simply need to be told,” he added.

“We are thrilled to provide an opportunity for filmmakers,” said Peter Billingsley. “Getting any film beyond the idea stage has become increasingly difficult these days, especially for documentary filmmakers that want to shine a light and make a difference. Our goal is to create a powerful annual platform to help filmmakers tell important and engaging stories.”

Gary Auerbauch added, “It has been our privilege to produce a long list of shows for a variety of networks and we are excited to now work on such an important show for TheBlaze. This project has special meaning for Go Go Luckey because it embodies such a worthy cause -­ enabling filmmakers to pursue the truth.”

Later today, GlennBeck.com will be posting an interview between Peter Billingsley and Glenn Beck from today’s Glenn Beck Radio Program. Stay tuned for more updates.

    Please, please, please do a documentary on the bail out money, who got it how much, what they did with it , what got paied back, what whet to people in other countries.  we only see snippits of stories and it is difficult to know what really happened to all that money.  Maybe we should know who gave the money as well.  Who made the dicisions of were money could go.  Joylyn .

    Vince Vaughn might as well kiss his career goodbye. Teaming up with Beck in anything is career suicide in Hollywood. Best of luck on this and hope you get a documentary that is truly fact based and calls out all sides for their misgivings.

    This sounds like a great show. To bad the bigots in Hollywood will never let them work any were else ever again.

  • ~TeaForMe~

    I admire Vince Vaughan’s courage in going against the grain in Hollywood.  I’ve always been a fan, as he’s a great actor/comedian, but I’m perhaps most impressed that he would team up with (and be seen meeting with) Beck.  Hollywood doesn’t seem to tolerate, much less encourage, diversity of thought.  Thank you for speaking up, Vince Vaughan!

    environment.” – Joel Cheatwood, President and Chief Content Officer for TheBlaze

    Another example of how out of touch The Blaze and its executives are with reality or honesty. There is no such thing as a documentary without an agenda.

    Even if it is as simple as shedding light on a subject, there is always an agenda. Otherwise, there is no point in making it.

    This entire endeavor has an agenda.

    Really like Vaughn, Adam Sandler is also Conservative, another fav of mine, was so happy because I have quit watching movies with Fascist in them which pretty much limits my entertainment.

    I no longer have any respect for Vince Vaughn and can’t support his movies.  I am a conservative but not a hater.  Beck is a purveyor of hatred and lies.  He help separate the people of this country for his own fame, financial gain and loyalty to the likes of the Koch brothers.  He will have to answer to God.

     Hey genius. (Not come off as a ass but) “seek the truth with no agenda” Duh there is a agenda… to tell the truth! Let the chips fall where they may. The truth without bending facts or twisting the truth aka lies.

    The point is not to have a agenda other than the truth aka facts.

    Another example of how out of touch Michael S. is with comprehension, reading and logic. (to borrow your phrasing… don’t worry I’ll give it back when I’m done)

    Think a little harder before you post your comments and/or get little bit more rest buddy.

    Great idea, we need more documentaries exposing the corruption and waste in Washington.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YMJUHF4UNZWSLIDRXPSSTOHA3Q Shane

     That’s total BS! Glenn is not a hater, he just exposes the liberals who are doing damage to our country. Glenn’s TV show was great on Fox News, but the libs killed his show. Glenn does not preach hatred, but he asks us to do our own research on the important issues of our times, and not rely on any one news source. I doubt that you are a conservative, as you are probably just another liberal jerk trying to defame another conservative icon. Liberals are the true haters who are filled with intolerance towards anyone who expresses opinions contrary to liberal dogma.

    Vince Vaughn is the latest hero from Hollywood to step up and use his celebrity for the good of mankind. Kirk Cameron is another example of the growing group of selfless people from Hollywood who stands up for the goodness that has come from Hollywood.

    You’re really ok aligning yourself and your brand with Hollywood scum? 

    Also, I couldn’t help but notice that as Clear Channel, which is ‘owned’ by Bain and owns your radio rights, goes through another round of massive layoffs, you seem to be just fine. I’m sure this is just coincidence and has nothing to do with your pushing a faux conservative like Romney down our throats.

    As a native Texican myself

    Has anyone other than myself noted and pointed out the Second Amendment to the US Constitution protects an object that being, ‘the right of the people to keep and bear arms?’ “Arms” as we all know being a weapon, a gun, an inanimate object. Constitution doesn’t guarantee us the “right to horses” which was needed when it was penned.  NO OTHER object save a weapon is protected in the US Constitution

    I would like someone to do a documentary about the “poor” or the useless as I like to call them.  You know the ones walking around with tattoos and gold dripping off of them and the best athletic gear.  But have to use an ebt card to buy there groceries.

    Will the show have sarcastic results in using lefty standards:
    After the best film is determined, there will be no winner, & the prize will be distributed equally or even larger portions to those of lessor quality?

    This is a great example of how a powerful weapon (Media, entertainent, Hollywood) when in the right hands and used for noble purposes can uplift and enlighten the masses. Instead of the usual way of present day where its been used to manipulate and destroy. Bravo!  But I still am cautious to applaud this effort too loudly.  Forever a skeptic, with good reason.  So, I will wait to see its results. Hoping for the best :) If it produces really deep, DEEP truth exposed and not just a repetition of readily accessible “conspiracy theory” information,well, then I will be rightfully impressed!!!  Ill wait with baited breath and hope that there is still some noble men and women out there willing to risk it all for a noble and just cause. Im giving the benefit of the doubt to them, though,and sincerely hope that I am not let down. We all want someone to believe in and all of them:right, left and even the alternative media so far have all been exposed for being controls on thought. Never exposing ALL of it,just to a certain point. And very cleverly opposing one another and yet steering us in the same direction towards the same end result.  All the while we believe we led ourself to the opinions that we hold. Sadly, not so much. There has been a very well managed web that controls society’s access to available knowledge. I cant wait to see this. Finally, a reality show I may watch and not become physically ill while Im watching.  Please be TRUE, I want some TRUTH! YAY! God bless!

    I don’t know much about the t.v. bussiness but why not join in with the outdoor channel that possible people that are not filmiliar with guns would see into the world of people that have guns and enjoy going out and hunting or just to go out and shoot at targets that they are not just for war and killing other humans but a true enjoyment to life. Why not make a cartoon or something that is more appealing to a childs eye that would go back in time showing the history of the USA  that children would enjoy to sit and listen to.

    Yeah, thanks for not letting us know if we made the final cut to be on the show or return any of my emails. Thought you’d be more professional expected more from you guys. 

    My documentary idea for the Rise and fall of the motor city will be sweet.
