Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s ‘hitRECord’ TV Series to Premiere in January
A few months ago we heard the exciting news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s artistic spotlight web project HitRECord would debut its own TV series on new millennial network Pivot, and now the aptly-titled ‘HitRECord on TV’ has been given an official January 2014 premiere date, behind Pivot’s other original programs.
The new series created by ‘Don Jon‘ star Joseph Gordon-Levitt will officially hit the airwaves on January 18, 2014, hosted by Gordon-Levitt himself to feature submissions of short films, music, live performances, animation, conversation, and more. Far in advance of that date however, The new cable network from Participant Media also unveiled launch dates for its primetime originals, including the September 14 debuts of Meghan McCain’s documentary talk series, ‘Raising McCain’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’ style docu-soap ‘Jersey Strong.’
Levitt himself will oversee collaborations from the ‘HitRECord’ website as per usual, selecting works to be featured on the TV series and compensating artists for their contributions. “This is not a joke, this is not a marketing gimmick, this is an invitation,” said Levitt of the endeavor back in March. “I’m so excited to get to work with you, and I think we’re gonna make a really great show.”
