Voicemail Q&A: “Is there going to be a Forrest Fenn treasure TV show?’

The following voicemail regarding a potential “Forrest Fenn TV show” was left by viewer Davio22 on October 11, 2018. You can read our response below the audio track.


Our friend, Davio22, is referring to a story that was documented in an article written by Nellie Andreeva on October 10, 2018 and published online at deadline.com.

In summary, the article indicates that Fox Media’s Entertainment Group has granted a “put pilot” commitment to a collaborative group consisting of a number of entertainment industry notables. A put pilot is a pilot that the network has agreed to air either as a special series or one-time event. If the network does not air the pilot episode, the network will owe substantial monetary penalties to the studio. Generally, this guarantees that the pilot will be picked up by the network.

“Forrest’s Treasure is described as a grounded, family drama with a flair for adventure inspired by David Kushner’s upcoming book on the treasure of Forrest Fenn.  When a family from Chicago moves to a small town in Montana to pick up the pieces of their fractured lives, they find meaning and purpose in the mystery of a hidden treasure.”

Kushner is a freelance writer whose article (A Deadly Hunt for Hidden Treasure Spawns an Online Mystery) on Fenn and the treasure appeared in Wired Online in late July, 2018.

Our opinion: Two things – apparently there is a book in the offing, written by Kushner, on the subject of the Fenn Treasure, and the Andreeva article makes the potential of some Fenn Treasure related programming sound promising. But, our experience is that these projects take a minimum of months to develop, and there are myriad of obstacles that will have to be overcome along the way.

We presume the project would have not progressed to this stage without Fenn’s approval.

AGK’s Lighting Set Up

We’ve had several questions about the lighting set-up in our “command center,” as I like to call my living room. Although there are a pair of table lamps in front of us, our primary light source is a pair of 105 watt compact flourescent light (CFL) bulbs with mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) of 4,000 hours. Amazon sells them, as well as CFLs in various other shapes and sizes. We learned to use this when we were still in the streaming and documentary making business. I bought this pair for about $30.00.

I screw them into a pair of wall sconces that I purchased at Lowes. They cost about $8.00 each.

They provide an even daylight temperature and they run extremely cool.

If you have any questions about them, please comment below. Click on the image to see a larger, higher resolution version.

New Article on Forrest Fenn in Western Art & Architecture Online

“First of all, the chest itself is a treasure, a cast-bronze, Romanesque lockbox, dating to about 1150. Second, it’s filled with items only a lifelong collector, ardent archeologist, and lover of beautiful things with a mischievous gleam in his eye could have thought to amass. Antique jewelry and fetishes, gold coins and heavy gold nuggets, uncut emeralds, rubies, and diamonds all lie jumbled in a glorious heap, as if in a N.C. Wyeth illustration for Treasure Island.”
