  1. We are the creative team behind the Arthur Chu documentary. By now you may have heard of Arthur, the Taiwanese-American Jeopardy! champion of earlier this year. We are reaching out in hopes that you will post an article on Arthur Chu and the importance of telling his story.

    Through Arthur, we hope to give viewers a different, more intimate portrayal of the game show, Jeopardy! We are also exploring such themes as: the nature of viral celebrity in the modern world, ethnicity and new media, and the American Dream. The film also examines the link Arthur has made between his success on Jeopardy! as an outspoken “Asian-American” champion and the resulting backlash. But we also have access to film in the Jeopardy! studio and interviews lined up with notable figures such as Ken Jennings and Alex Trebek. And 3-time Academy Award Winning Filmmaker Mark Jonathan Harris will be joining us as our Executive Producer. We are a small team and could really use the support. I think a lot of people would love to hear this story. Just thought you might be interested based on your coverage and writing an article on your blog would be great. Just helping us spread the word to the community personally will without a doubt help us achieve our goal. Here are the links to our project:
