Man of the People – Another show proves free content is great for everyone!

Our hapless hero in Man of the People! Its funny and you'll certainly be able to relate it to politicians whatever country you live in! (Image source: http://www.tobymorton.com)

After my coverage of some great free TV available online by producers who want to share their work with you, I recieved an email drawing my attention to Man of the People.  A mockumentary which is described as:

This is a new mockumentary about a man born with a silver foot in his mouth, his smart-but-shy Campaign Manager, their rag-tag staff, and a longshot campaign to be the next Mayor of NYC.

I don’t want to spoil the episodes by giving a summary of the storyline, but what I will say is that it is superbly acted and even for a non-uk citizen its very funny, with much of it putting me in mind of the “Gordon Brown” moments we saw in our general election this year.

As I said before with the release of Pioneer One we are beginning to see a new type of distribution method for material that looks, sounds and feels like a mainstream title you could expect on TV.

I do though have some suggestions to the team behind Man of The People. Firstly they should consider not just offering the material on YouTube. VODO would be a good choice to reach a wider audience, as would putting the episodes onto a Bittorrent tracker.

So get yourself over to the homepage and check out this great show!
