We find it pretty impressive how these guys have grown their brand from a donut shop to a full scale Strange-brand. Always interested to see what they’ve got cooking up. Here’s some insight on the new series from Corey Smale of Strange Donuts.
We wanted to take a closer look at some the awesome people and places making St. Louis great, and also educate kids on non-traditional opportunities within our community that can provide an education and quality way of living. Over the past couple of years we’ve made friends with some really radical and genuine people putting their hearts into their work and wanted to highlight them through our own point-of-view.
We’ve been approached a handful of times by production agencies and show runners looking to do a more “reality” style series, but we weren’t down with a lot of the caveats that come with docudrama so we went ahead and made this ourselves. Season 1 features our collaborative beer pairing dinner with 4 Hands (Power of the Dinner), a trip to our Maplewood neighbors Bolyard’s Meat & Provisions, we head down south to see our friends at Such & Such Farm, and wrap the series up at National Donut Day 2015. We’re already filming more stuff for the next season and hope to release it later this fall. Season 1 episode 1 debuts next Wednesday night @ 9PM and the following 3 episodes will release the following 3 wednesdays. Also we’re working on some digital distribution deals to get this on Hulu, iTunes and maybe even Netflix if everything works out (many fingers crossed).
