(IRVINE, CA) -- Producer Dave Pounder has been cast in multiple episodes of a new series entitled Open Call for the TV Guide Channel. The first episode, Open Call: In Search of the Next Donald Trump, aired last Monday, where Pounder made it to the final round only to be cut because "TV Guide simply couldn't do a pilot around a porn producer".
"Given the demographic of TV Guide Channel's viewer base, I wasn't surprised the producers of the show didn't want to do an entire pilot around a porn producer; however, by having me on several of their shows as a recurring character is yet another example of a growing acceptance, or perhaps tolerance, of pornography in mainstream circles," said Pounder.
Open Call is a new series that depicts the casting process from the initial casting calls all the way to final selection and production. The winner of each Open Call theme has a show pilot designed around them which could potentially lead to a series on the network.
Pounder is also featured in "Open Call: In Search of the Next Late Night Television Host", which will air later this month.
