August 15, 2011 - Fullerton, CA - After the inaugural shoot on Wednesday night in a packed studio of guests, cast members, sponsors and crew, "The Moto Show with Jim Holley" went into it's "hyper" post-production phase to get the show uploaded to YouTube for the weekend. While there were a few technical (and creative) delays, the show was live by around 12:00pm PST on Saturday, August 13 and the positive reviews began streaming in.

"Jim, Paul, Laurette, the guests and our entire crew did a fantastic job getting this new project off the ground," said Todd Huffman, series creator and Executive Producer at Pipeline Digital Media. "The end results seem to show it based on responses from viewers. We all learned a lot and it will only get better."

Based on initial PR, and the flurry of industry buzz on Facebook and enthusiast forums, views of TMS began generating Saturday afternoon on YouTube. By Sunday evening, viewership had crossed the pond to Europe, and also spread to Australia, Brazil and South Africa. In only its first weekend, views are rapidly approaching 3000, which is encouraging considering the word will only continue to spread over the next few weeks. 

The first episode is 36 minutes long and included four sponsored breaks that featured commercials from JT Racing, Matrix Concepts, Husqvarna Motorcycles, Butler Maps and Cycle News. Because there is no prescribed timeslot to fill (i.e., 30-minutes, 60-minutes, etc.) as needed by typical broadcast and cable networks, TMS producers have some flexibility in what their running time will be.

"For lots of reasons, we don't want the show to run too long but it's great to not have to cut off a guest or edit down too much to fit a specific run-time," said Todd Huffman. "The content is key to this show and we don't want to stifle it." 

This week's guests include Monster Energy Pro Circuit and America's newest Motocross of Nations Team Member, Blake Baggett, KTM's 7X ISDE Top American Kurt Caselli and 2011 X-Games Gold Medalist Nate Adams plus others to be announced.
