Welcome to The Indpendent's website.
“The Independent” is a planned weekly primetime reality-based television program where pre-screened contestants vie to become a legitimate independent candidate for the President of the United States. There will be three main stages of the programming:
1. The Online Stage
(May - Dec)
This stage will initially focus on adding a large number of
self-selected "candidates" through advertising and online
social newtorks. Once registered a "candidate" will have
the ability to promote themselves to their personal online
network and solicit online "votes". Candidates receiving
the largest number of votes over certain time periods will
be featured on this website and other social networking
sites as "leading candidates".
2. The TV Competing Stage
(Filmed Jan – Aug and televised Jan - May)
This stage will begin with the filming of one-on-one
interviews between the shows Hosts (TBD) and pre
selected online "leading candidates". The Hosts
will select the "best" 16 - 32 candidates who will move into
a weekly aired format of debate centering on relevant
social, politicial and financial issues. The format will be
similar to other reality programs where contestants will be
“voted out of office” each episode by the viewers until a
single winner is named by popular vote in the end of May
3. The TV Campaign Trail Stage
(Filmed and televised Jun - Nov)
Following The Independent's selection, this stage focuses
on the candidates campaign trail up until the election.
Note: All contestants will need to meet standard requirements to run for the office, including; be a natural-born citizen of the United States, be at least 35 years old, and have been a resident of the United States for at least 14 years.
