“Oklahoma’s first streaming platform encourages people to get away from their screens.”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Oklahoma City, OK – The Show Starts Now, a dynamic Oklahoma-based streaming service, is now available, inviting viewers to venture beyond their living room confines and embark on exciting journeys of self-improvement.
“The Show Starts Now is probably the only streaming platform that encourages people to get away from their screens,” said founder Dennis Spielman. “We’re more than a streaming platform as we get involved with communities with our live shows and events.”
The streaming service is proud to offer diverse programming for those looking for a new experience. For foodies, Creative Burgers, Uncovering Oklahoma, and Take A Bite with Phi give viewers a glimpse into the world of local restaurants and their delicious dishes. For those who love a good scare, Visiting Haunts is a travel series focusing on places people can visit for ghost stories.
“Collaborating with The Show Starts Now on a food show highlighting Oklahoma’s delicious and diverse restaurant landscape was a no-brainer!” said show host Phi Nguyen. “Take A Bite with Phi allows us to share hidden and beloved dining experiences across Oklahoma City (and beyond!) while getting to know the talented chefs and passionate faces behind the food. I hope viewers feel empowered to try a new restaurant, support a local business, or order a dish they’ve never tasted after watching the episodes.”
On the educational side, Art & Victory is for anyone interested in expanding their artistic endeavors. Archiving Contemporary Art interviews artists worldwide about their work, providing a unique window into the creative process. Yes! Science! is another standout program that profiles women in STEM careers, inspiring the next generation of female scientists and engineers.
“One of the incredible moments in Yes! Science! is getting to learn about their favorite book because we all have a connection to literature, and I love to see the passion and inspiration that stems (ha) from a source that we can all experience in our own ways,” said Pallas the Librian, host of Yes! Science! “Doing science experiments is always a blast! I never know what the producers have thought up until the show is going, and then we have to work together to adapt on the fly! Science in real time!”
As the creator of the award-winning travel and interview series Uncovering Oklahoma, the streaming service expands on Spielman’s mission to help add adventure to people’s lives.
“It’s easy to get caught up in the routine of life, but when we break free from our comfort zones and try new things, we open ourselves up to endless possibilities and a more fulfilling existence,” said Spielman. “I want to help people live their best lives and never settle for a boring existence.”
On the local events aspect, The Show Starts Now will premiere an original play inspired by classic sci-fi radio shows. Anomaly Radio: The Scientist Who Sought to Connect Worlds opens on Friday, October 20, 2023 at Yellow Dog Coffee in Norman, Oklahoma. Imagine if you will… Five brave volunteer performers are handed a mysterious radio-play script, a box of props, and are told the show starts in five minutes. Will they be able to pull it off as written? Or will the evening descend into improv-esque chaos?
The streaming service is available online at www.TheShowStartsNow.tv and is accessible from anywhere in the world. After a free trial, subscribers can join for $5.99 a month. Whether you’re a seasoned adventurer or just looking to dip your toes into something new, The Show Starts Now is the perfect way to start exploring.
“Our mission is to empower individuals to explore new worlds and unlock their full potential through our curated streaming experiences,” said Spielman. “We believe in the power of storytelling to inspire and educate, and we strive to bring diverse perspectives and thought-provoking content to our viewers. Whether you’re seeking adventure, knowledge, or simply a moment of escape, we aim to be your go-to destination for enriching and engaging entertainment. Join us on this journey, as the show starts now.”
