About the Kevin Burns Interview

Hi guys!

I'm Kevin Burns, a proud self-proclaimed product of watching too much 1960s television. As the President and CEO of Prometheus Entertainment, I've been the Emmy Award-winning creator and executive producer of more than 600 hours of programs ranging from "Biography" to "The Girls Next Door,” “Ancient Aliens” "to America's Book of Secrets." In addition to developing a reboot of "Lost in Space" (one of my all-time favorite TV shows), I'm also currently in production with,= “The Curse of Oak Island,” which launches its second season TONIGHT, November 4th at 9:00pm EST on HISTORY.

EDIT: I think this is great. I mean, I really appreciate the opportunity to talk to fans of the show, and fans of our other shows. I don't get to do that very much, outside of hearing from friends whether or not if they watch our stuff, and i can never trust them! This is one of the few ways that people in our business actually get feedback, so I appreciate it very much. I encourage you to tune in tonight on HISTORY to catch the first episode of season 2 - there will be 10 episodes - and every episode, I think, there is some finding in each episode that builds up to the finale. It's great to follow the story, and to be honest, it's an honor to follow the story. I am most appreciative, not only of the viewers, but the network, and the guys who own the island. They have NO interest in being on television - Rick and Marty, these are not people motivated to be on TV, they were very afraid that we would interfere with their process, and they are happy that it turned out to not be the case. I take great pride that all the reality shows that I do are real reality - they are not staged, we don't fake things, we produce and edit them in a way that is compelling and looks like it's been scripted, but it has not been scripted. I feel like it's my job to tell the real story in a very compelling and visual way. And i think we do that. We have a great team of producers and editors in the field - every show has 6 or 7 editors on it - we spend more time editing these shows than anyone else does. And everything you see is real, the characters are real, we didn't hire people to go up there, we don't stage it.

Thank you everybody.
