Yes, we will be having a Ten Dollar Tales Marathon…as I am told it will be 8 episodes, back-to-back, starting at 8pm.Come and see some funny and wierd story-telling by some of Windsor’s artists who are doing something with their time and talent.
For those of you who are clueless…which is most of you…there is a show produced locally for a cable station…and that show is the quirky, campy, bizarre, often funny-by-accident Ten Dollar Tales.
Christian Aldo, John Doherty, and Marshall Sfalcin have made the show based on the premise listed below:
“Lester Rockwell’s got himself a problem. WindsorWood Studios is going out of business and it’s up to Lester to save his company by budgeting each production for only ten dollars. Are the writers up for it? Is it possible to make a show for only ten bucks? At least something watchable? Find out each week on Ten Dollar Tales!”Windsor Star reporter, Craig Pearson, had this to say about the show.
“Ten Dollar tales are no cheap Trick… The best aspect of (the show) are the bizarre stories, which have an addictive nature and usually end with an out-of-the-blue punchline.”
The Ten Dollar Tales Website describes the show as:
“A cross between the Twilight Zone and SCTV on maybe a 1000th of the budget, Ten Dollar Tales is shot in Windsor, Ontario, Canada (across the river from Detroit) and maintains a local cast and crew. CogecoTV broadcasts the show to Windsor, Essex, Chatham-Kent and Sarnia.”
