We humans love controversy, and Julian Assange knows that. Just last year, he turned the world upside down unraveling one mystery after another through WikiLeaks. He unmasked governments, shady companies, heavy bank accounts and went on to become the most wanted man in the world. The man became the face of investigative journalism, and now, he wants to base a business around it. Julian Assange is planning to launch a TV show, which will give a new medium to the same old content, which he has mastered in delivery.
This statement from WikiLeaks simplifies what the show intends to do.
…draw together controversial voices from across the political spectrum – iconoclasts, visionaries and power insiders – each to offer a window on the world tomorrow.
Quick Roll Productions are producing the show with a commitment of over 600 million viewers across cable, terrestrial broadcast and satellite. The US Government has been investigating into WikiLeaks and Assange for over 500 days now, which has made him into a revolutionary figure, worldwide.
Julian Assange’s personal statement about the TV show stands as
Through this series, I will explore the possibilities for our future in conversations with those who are shaping it. Are we heading towards utopia, or dystopia and how we can set our paths? This is an exciting opportunity to discuss the vision of my guests in a new style of show that examines their philosophies and struggles in a deeper and clearer way than has been done before.
The series will start airing in March, and has ten episodes initially, planned for weekly release. This series will urge people to rethink the way the world is working currently, and what needs to be done to save it from a collapse. The way WikiLeaks shook the foundation of some governments and unraveled their diplomatic dirt, this show will be hugely popular. This show will only address our insatiable desire for conspiracies, but then, who does not like conspiracies?
