CHABUTI is a one hour television program that combines Variety Entertainment with major Musical celebrity guests and their Merchandise. The program is divided equally between the Entertainment and the Celebrity Merchandising. They “Show & Tell” the audience where the merchandise can be purchased. CHABUTI supports this graphically within the lower third of the screen showing retail stores, web-sites and toll free numbers. These merchandising segments are short and professionally produced to look and feel more like entertainment than home shopping. Chabuti takes no profit or service fees from any sale an artist makes.
In addition—our celebrity Musical artists can speak directly to our audience about their charities or causes they are passionate about as well. All contributions are made directly to the charity or cause.
The Variety Entertainment
The Entertainment portion of the program consists of pulling forward and shortening well known game shows of the past e.g. Name that Tune, This is Your Life, Password. Add world famous BLACKSTONE Magic along with BLOOPERS & BLUNDERS of our guests and you have two mainstays of the variety portion of the program.
The Merchandising portion of the program will allow for CHABUTI to direct viewers to where they can find the celebrity shoes, handbags, eyewear, jewelry, perfumes & colognes, men & women’s clothing lines, restaurants, coffees, wines, spirits and micro-brews.
CHABUTI presents two solutions:
The Presenting Sponsor’s advertising will actually be seen, no remote control click-out, as the the marketing messages will be done seamlessly by our expert and will be as much a part of the programming as the merchandising and entertainment.
