Grouper on the Red Carpet

November 3, 2006

Yes, yes, the Grouper team went down to Hollywood to attend the premiere of Stranger than Fiction. Our intrepid reporting team scored interviews with all the stars and has graciously shared their video memories with you and me on Grouper. Check out the swanky interviews with Will and Dustin. I’m told the part where Julie blurts out a marriage proposal to Will and then faints dead away was mercifully edited out by Andrew. Dang!

Heck, see all the video interviews with all the stars on the Stranger Than Fiction Channel

What’s coming up soon on you ask? Plenty. First we’ve got these election thingees to get past and then immediately after Grouper and Sony will bring you something to take your mind off of all that yacking and fighting — Sony Movie Classic (to be granted a swankier name by launch date, I promise) film and TV clips.

This just in. I swear, even as I was pressing the post button, execs were pounding their way down the hallway waving a piece of paper that held the big decision. The New channel will be called ScreenBites. Look for it to appear on next week.
