-- Grover, NC – The Presidential Culinary Museum and Presidential Service Center have signed contracts with TVtibi, a new, global, a-la-carte video platform. Production of the controversial series, Inside the Presidents’ Cabinet, that numerous actors have refused to participate in, has begun. Martin CJ Mongiello is the Producer and Director with Michael Berlin as First Assistant Director. Christopher Bainbridge is the Director of Photography. Michael Mongiello, Jr. is Associate Producer. The series will debut in the spring of 2015.
“Attempting to reach as many humans as possible worldwide cannot traditionally be accomplished in the digital marketplace today. Which is why we selected TVtibi – for its revolutionary designs that will stun the market,” stated Toni Ann Marcolini, Esquire.
“Likewise, we seek to surprise the world by humanizing the most powerful Presidents ever to rule.” mentions former White House and Camp David Resort Chef, Martin CJ Mongiello. “We’ve had numerous present-day Thomas Jefferson actors refuse to be filmed as the President kissing his black lover, Sally Hemmings – in any scene! We will also cover the President bribing people to smuggle rice across the Italian border, his illicit love affairs, fancy for French crème brûlée, and love of Italian pasta.”
The series covers extremely fun recipes prepared live by the chefs themselves – as well as controversial issues that have sent a few curators into a self-defeating rage spiral. President Nixon’s last supper – as well as his love of catsup on cottage cheese. President Washington’s secret records of his black slave servants and Top Chef, Hercules – who ran away. Vladimir Putin’s lies expressed in front of the world after dining in 2001 on chocolate caviar, Julia Child’s slam letter on the White House food and service, the Clintons’ love of mangoes and bananas, servants that ripped off and stole from the Presidents’ homes and bank accounts, the Bush family’s favorite hot sauce and President Lincoln’s first love, Ann, and her squash pie – and where he was really born…
“We expect to be attacked and ridiculed, torn apart, and basically every high-powered attempt made to shut this series down in LA, DC, and NYC. But no matter how many legal filings – by a string of attorneys coming our way, the favors called in to newspaper owners to write smear stories, the threats already received, and more – one thing will still occur – the world will come to know the whole truth, the real story, and what actually happened. It may shock some and certainly many will shut off their devices in revulsion,” states Chef Marti. “Many people want to hide the truth of the Presidency behind closed doors. However, all of our series is based on published facts, not conjecture or secret sources.”
Pre-production began on October 27, principal photography is scheduled for January, 2015, and post-production, with BClip Productions of Asheville, in February.
