Fandango Wastes No Time Leveraging Dave Karger

Holy cow, that didn’t take long.

A day after EW vet Dave Karger officially started at Fandango, the movie ticketing service has announced the first of many ways it plans to showcase the impeccable credentials of its chief correspondent. The company is planning to launch one or more Web series wrapped around Karger as host and interviewer, before the end of the year. Possibilities include:

Fanticipation: A weekly look at the upcoming weekend’s top box office contenders and possible sleeper hits, based on proprietary insights and data from Fandango.

Honored: An update, analysis and countdown show during awards season.

Unsung: A series featuring some of biggest names in Hollywood introducing their feature film colleagues (character actor, dialect coach, costume designer, etc.) who deserve to share the spotlight.

Each show has definite potential, with the first one especially sounding like a differentiated winner. In case you missed it, check out our interview with Karger last week, linked below.
