    Cool Elvira's Reality TV show...

    From http://www.elvira.com more info and images of possible "heirs".


    - by Kimberly Nordyke - Elvira reality TV "scary heir-raiser"
    Looking for a few good Elviras



    Impersonator, Christian Greenia, with Cassandra Peterson
    Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, is looking for a possible heir to her throne,
    and she is hoping to find one via a new reality project being shopped to broadcast and cable networks.

    Cassandra Peterson, who created the character 25 years ago and has portrayed her in numerous shows and movies, and her manager, Eric Gardner of Panacea Entertainment, have teamed with reality TV producers Stuart Krasnow and FremantleMedia North America to pitch an unscripted project featuring contestants competing for a one-year contract to portray the character in various personal appearances. The contestants would be put through elimination challenges designed to parody some of the most popular reality shows but with a macabre twist, with Peterson (in character) serving as a sort of mentor - or "tormentor." as she puts it - and judges making the final determination on who gets eliminated.

    FMNA, which produces shows like Fox's "American Idol," would produce. Peterson and Gardner would executive produce, Krasnow, who has executive produced such unscripted shows as NBC's "Average Joe" and "Weakest Link," also would executive produce through his production company, Stuart Krasnow Prods., which has an overall deal at FMNA.

    Impersonator, Patterson Lundquist as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
    Peterson likens the idea of finding a new Elvira to that of Batman and Bozo the Clown, characters played by several actors over the year. "Obviously, I don't want to be walking around dressed uplike Elvira when I'm 105 years old," Peterson said. Krasnow added that the project will have comedic and macabre elements. "We're looking at a show where the cast is going to be sleeping in coffins in a pretty scary place, and part of the production will be shot in Transylvania," he said.


    Impersonator as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
    Gardner said the project is part of a broader plan to immortalize the character that includes an animated series as well as a family-friendly feature film centered on the "back story" of Halloween that features the Elvira character. "Our benignly megalomaniacal goal is to co-opt Halloween, immortalizing the Elvira character in the process," he said. "The opportunity to meld a major brand and a major holiday comes along once in a lifetime, if that."

    Yay!!! I love Cassandra Peterson and her Elvira. She really is a sweetheart, seen her at a few events before.

    I hope this project gets off the ground!

    Re: Elvira's Reality TV show...

    I absolutely ADORE Cassandra and her alter-ego Elvira. I had a small bit part in the Elvira Mistress of the Dark Movie a ..cough.cough. number of years ago. "Both" of them are awsome people, funny as all get out and with a heart of gold. Am really looking forward to this one...

    No one can ever replace the original Elvira, but I still think the reality show that's being discussed is a great idea.

    And on a side bar, Knott's Scary Farms's Halloween Haunt has never been the same since Elvira left. Her stage show at the Ghoul Time Theatre was awesome!

    I LOVE ELVIRA!

    I vote for David Guest to replace her. He's REALLY scary.

    Actually, Stitchy-poo, you can easily get the..right..um.."qualifications." When we were on the set, she was very open about how much those "qualifications" cost!
