PHOENIX, Arizona, January 10. IN an exciting first, SwimmingWorld.TV has partnered with the Club Swim Show to host syndicated content from the mockumentary-style web-show that features the fictional swim team entitled the Flouders.
Show creator Daniel Bowman first hinted about the relationship during his Morning Swim Show appearance today, which can be seen here:
As part of the syndication partnership, SwimmingWorld.TV will debut the 12 episodes from Season 1 weekly, while also hosting freely-available archives of each episode this upcoming season at the Club Swim Show page. Season 1 will begin debuting early next month.
For now, Season 0, which proved to be the precursor project that led to a full-blown first season of the show by these Asbury University-based students, is available on SwimmingWorld.TV. Likely the best produced and funniest webisode is the fifth-and-final edition of Season 0, entitled “Christmas Party”. To watch it, check out the video below. To watch the other four episodes from the debut season, go to the Club Swim Show page.
As explained in his Morning Swim Show appearance, Bowman and a core group of his friends created the show about a struggling swim team as part of a film class at Asbury. After putting together a successful first season of the show inspired by “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” Bowman pitched the idea of making the “Club Swim Show” the project for an entire class at Asbury.
After being greenlit, Bowman and his Club Swim Show team took a page from Anthony Ervin and put together an Indiegogo fundraiser to raise the $1,000 it would need to fully fund a new season. They quickly reached that goal, and are now fully focused on creating great content for Season 1.
Swimming World is proud to support this type of original content by helping the Club Swim Show reach our audience, which is the largest of any swimming media site in the world. We are truly hopeful that not only will Club Swim Show become a major success, but that the concept can spawn other original work from other amazingly creative people in the swimming community.
