NEW YORK, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- I Wanna Be On®, the innovative media and entertainment research consultancy, has been evaluating the robustness of its proprietary celebrity modeling methods and has confirmed that the company accurately predicted in May 2010 that Charlie Sheen was a candidate to become the next celebrity phenomenon after Betty White. These results were publicly disclosed on the company blog on May 12, 2010 and can be seen at Who Will Be The Next Celebrity Phenomenon Following Betty White's Triumphant SNL Appearance?
Professor Vincent Presti states,
"I Wanna Be On had a phenomenal year in predicting celebrity and media trends and we look forward to continue refinement of our models, especially their cross-platform media applications.
In light of the robust ground-breaking media research, I Wanna Be On is receiving inquiries from Middle Eastern and Asian investors for strategic partnership and acquisition purposes. While these offers will help us to add new technologies to our modeling capabilities, we feel that the company should be valued north of $20 million before we can enter into any serious negotiations."
The company is diligently developing new models to reinvent Broadway and live performance projects. "Until we have successfully deployed a sort of 'vaudeville revisited strategy' to help high school students develop talent and to maximize revenue from classical book rights that can be modernized for modern audiences," according to Professor Presti, "I Wanna Be On will not reach its full potential and $20 million valuation."
Currently, I Wanna Be On is becoming a talent agency and is seeking guild franchise memberships to help better represent and package product for the changing economic nature of the entertainment business.
