Mark Bowness, the entrepreneur behind the successful Paradise or Bust, Tribewanted adventure is launching his new project, Have You Got The Nerve, that aims to form a publicly owned TV Production and wants everyday people to get involved.

Members of the public who have dreamed of seeing their own ideas for a TV show up on the big screen are being invited to get involved in a new project that comes from the creator of Tribewanted.

Mark Bowness has today launched an entirely new concept that enables members of the public create their own factual, drama or entertainment television programmes.

The first stage of the adventure is to find 3000 members of the public to become “Executive Producers” to get behind the concept. These people are asked to pay a one off fee of £60.00 and in return they will share in the financial success of “Have You Got The Nerve”.

Once 3000 people have signed up as Executive Producers wider members of the public will be encouraged to sign up and submit their creative ideas for TV and media concepts.

Mark and the Executive Producers will then choose which projects to take forward and the successful ones will be able to use a dedicated film crew, have access to key industry operators and identify ways in which the project can be sold globally.

Already the production team are working on projects with the likes of Bebo and the organisers of PopPark, who are in talks with McFly to headline the 2008 theme park concerts, along with a new Global Travel Adventure concept that is set to launch later in the year.

Speaking about the launch, Mark Bowness, founder of Tribewanted and now said,

“Members of the public used to take videos of family occasions on their clunky video cameras, YouTube opened the door for people to create their own content and now Have You Got The Nerve? is a new breed of production company that enables the public to create the next X Factor, the next Deal or No Deal and the next Eastenders, turning traditional media on its head”

He continued, “Tribewanted, and the subsequent TV programme and book, Paradise or Bust, have demonstrated what can be achieved when enough people get together to make an idea happen and I am confident that HaveYouGotTheNerve will be no different.”.

The launch of is being supported by a national media advertising campaign.
