Cabler's Brilliant Web site to allow anonymous bizzers to vent

NEW YORK — Industry people who want to publicly vent about television without attaching their names now have their chance.

Bravo’s Brilliant But Canceled Web site, which opened for business Tuesday, includes a link called “Anonymous Critic,” where insiders with invitation-only passwords from Bravo can either praise or damn TV shows. The contributors will be invitees, but anybody who calls up the link will be able to read what they write.

Jason Klarman, senior VP of marketing for Bravo, said the net has given passwords to a select group of TV directors, producers, writers and actors. They’ll write about current TV shows and about some of the classic programs available on the site through streaming video, such as Paul Haggis’ “Easy Streets” and John Cassavetes’ “Johnny Staccato.”

Bravo’s Web site staff, led by Kris Slava, will vet submissions.
