Going Deep with David Rees

Regular attendees of the FSG Originals Series know David Rees as our indefatigable host (and sometime scene-stealer), as at ease refereeing Frank Bill and John Darnielle as he is re-enacting a Stevie Nicks video with Lindsay Hunter and Holly Miranda, provoking John Jeremiah Sullivan or sharing secrets with Amelia Gray. Regular attendees of the FSG Originals series also know that David has been absent from host seat recently—BECAUSE HE’S BEEN MAKING HIS VERY OWN TV SHOW. That’s right, Going Deep with David Rees premieres tonight at 10 PM on Nat Geo TV (AKA The National Geographic Channel), right after Brain Games.

Here’s how David precaps it:

It’s a how-to show that teaches you THE BEST WAY to do things you think you already know how to do: Open a door, climb a tree, dig a hole, etc… It’s an honest-to-goodness instructional TV show, with expert advice from scientists and obsessive tinkerers and even religious authorities… But it’s also a little bonkers. We shot it in my house and I made all the animations and a lot of the music—we’re talking about artisanal, locally sourced, grass-fed television. The big message of the show is: OUR WORLD IS A VERY INTERESTING PLACE AND WE ARE LUCKY TO BE HERE. I hope you will watch it and have fun doing so.

And be sure to tune in to David’s Twitter feed for live annotations during the broadcast.
