The Ultimate Howard Stern Project List: Part 4 Credit to "stethacantus" Full version here (and worth checking out) http://stethacantus.hubpages.com/hub/ultimatehowardsternprojectlist4 Continuing the list of projects that Howard Stern worked on outside of his regular radio show. These are the years from 2000 to the present. 2000 ABANDONED PROJECT MOVIE: Private Parts II At the end of Private Parts Stuttering John shows up during the credits complaining that they ended the story before they got to the part where his character shows up. "I'm not even in this fucking movie! He says I'll be in the sequel What sequel?! Suppose this move sucks, then there won't even be any sequel!" More than ten years later and there still is no sequel. TELEVISION: Son Of The Beach See all 4 photos No longer needing Howard's listeners Murdoch cancelled Son Of The Beach despite it being their best rated show. The official reason given was that the channel wanted to compete against HBO and needed the budget to finance such shows as "The Shield". FX does not air reruns of the episodes nor has allowed it to be syndicated. ABANDONED PROJECT TELEVISION: Doomsday The shows were at least 90% completed with perhaps a couple of shows fully completed when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001. UPN executives panicked that no one wanted to see a post apocalyptic series after witnessing the destruction of lower Manhattan and in a knee jerk reaction cancelled the series before it even aired. No other network wanted the series so it was abandoned. 2002 ABANDONED PROJECT TELEVISION: Kane "Kane" was a sitcom about a wacky Southern family that CBS had lead Howard to believe they were interested in airing. It was never picked up. 2002 turned out to be a bad year for the Howard Stern Production Company. ABANDONED PROJECT LIVE EVENT: Mr. Methane Live On Broadway Howard was going to produce a live stage show on Broadway starring the fartist Mr. Methane, but the idea was never pursued. SEMI ABANDONED PROJECT HOME VIDEO/TELEVISION: Howard Stern's Jackass Howard said he was going to release a DVD of "Jackass" stunts done by his listeners. Back in 1990 Howard had planned to release a video with a segment called "America's Grossest Home Videos" and had asked listeners to send in their own videos. Lawyers convinced Howard that it was not legal to use video of people injuring themselves and the segment was never made. Some of the videos that did not involve injury were later used for Butt Bongo Fiesta. 2003 WEBSITE: howardstern.com Howard's official website. Someone had registered the domain name howardstern.com and Howard did not want him using it. So he paid the person an unknown amount of money for the domain name. Originally Howard wanted nothing to do with owning a website and if you logged in to howardstern.com you would get a blank screen. ABANDONED PROJECT TELEVISION: Etiquette For Outlaws A reality show from Howard's production company based on the book "Etiquette For Outlaws" that was suppose to air on Showtime. It was never made and there is still no explanation as to why. Reality shows are relatively inexpensive to produce and usually do well in the ratings. You had a show based on a hit book produced and promoted by Howard Stern. Even if Showtime changed their mind and turned the show down some other cable network should have picked it up. 2004 ABANDONED PROJECT TELEVISION: Howard Stern, The High School Years Spike TV had asked Howard Stern Productions to produce a cartoon about his high school years. Spike cut the budget per episode to $300,000 when it would cost Howard's production company nearly $1 Million an episode. Inevitably both sides agreed to cancel the project . ABANDONED PROJECT TELEVISION: The Bob Schimmel Show The pilot was immediately shopped around to different networks and was picked up by Fox under the new title "Schimmel & Schimmel" as a possible mid season replacement series. From that point on there is no explanation as to why the show never aired, although Howard has alluded that it could have been problems with Robert Schimmel. 2005 ABANDONED PROJECT HOME VIDEO: E! Show Uncensored DVD This was suppose to be a DVD box set of random episodes from the E! show shown uncensored. It took longer than they expected to go through all the E! episodes to find all the ones where women stripped and language was bleeped. By the time the episodes were nearly completed Howard had signed with iN Demand and decided to use the uncensored episodes on Howard On Demand instead. ABANDONED PROJECT LIVE EVENT/TELEVISION: Wack Pack Conclave Inspired by the papal conclave that elected Pope Benedict XVI, Howard wanted to lock most or all of the Wack Pack into a room and not allow them to leave until they elected one of them to be the Wack Pack Pope. Being a pre-Howard T.V. project there was no one to keep the idea alive and it became quickly forgotten. 2006 TELEVISION: Howard Stern TV / Howard Stern On Demand After the cancellation of the E! Show Howard announced that beginning with his Satellite shows he would be launching a pay-per-view channel on iN DEMAND, a service that allows viewers with digital boxes to download and watch programming. LIVE EVENT: The Howard Stern Annual Film Festival This was to be an annual film festival where listeners submit short films about Howard Stern. The best entries are shown and prizes are given out. In a separate category Stern Show cast members submit their own short films for competition. A second annual film festival was planned but never happened. ABANDONED PROJECT MOVIE: Man Of The Year After the movie "Man of the Year" had been released Howard announced that he was originally asked to be the star. Barry Levinson wanted Howard as the lead. Howard wanted to work with Barry Levinson. According to Howard he could not do the movie because it would have begun shooting at the same time he was scheduled to begin his Sirius shows. PROJECTS CURRENTLY IN PRE-PRODUCTION HELL Call it old age, call it Howard being disillusioned after so many of his projects were killed off in their early stages, call it the projects that did see the light of day that Howard never got paid for, or call it Howard wanting to spend most of his time with his beautiful wife Beth, but in the past few years Howard has not announced any new projects. He has even commented that he is no longer interested in projects outside his satellite radio show. However there are still a few projects he is involved with that have not yet materialized but are not quite dead. TELEVISION: The ABC Interview Show Howard has a deal to interview celebrities and heads of state for ABC News in a series of specials. MOVIE: Howard Stern's Porky's Howard Stern bought the rights to remake two movies from the early 80's. One of them is "Porky's" MOVIE: Howard Stern's Rock 'n' Roll High School The other movie Howard Stern bought the rights to remake. Unlike the Porky's project the original "Rock 'n' Roll High School" had enough of a plot that a remake is possible. And the original movie sucked, so any remake could only be better. HOME VIDEO: Private Parts Ultimate Edition DVD Going back to when Private Parts was originally released on home video Howard wanted to release a Laserdisc with deleted scenes. Enough deleted scenes exist from Private Parts that a second movie could practically be made. But Paramount released the no thrills version with no extras both on Laserdisc and later on DVD. HOME VIDEO: Channel 9 Shows on DVD The same as with the Private Parts, Howard is still trying to buy the rights to his Channel 9 shows for release on DVD. And just like the situation with Paramount the executives at WWOR refuse to sell Howard the rights. As was stated before there were two different edits of each episode.
