Vince Vaughn Teaming with Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze is teaming with Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Prods. to launch a new reality series called “The Pursuit of Truth,” in which 20 filmmakers will compete for financing of their documentary film idea.

Also involved in the show is Go Go Luckey Entertainment, founded by Gary and Julie Auerbauch.

The nine-episode series will debut on TheBlaze TV in late spring.

The teaming of Beck and Vaughn may seem like an odd couple politically, but that is not necessarily tyhe case. Vaughn campaigned for Ron Paul in the presidential election.

More interesting will be what kind of documentary wins the financing and distribution. Winners will be chosen from among a panel of judges.

Peter Billingsley, star of “A Christmas Story” who works for Vaughn’s production company, was a guest on Beck’s show today to talk about the new venture.

He and Beck claim that the winning documentary won’t be “preacy, agenda-driven, and even conspiratorial,” according to Beck’s site.

“We’re looking for great filmmaking, entertaining, truthful filmmaking
that comes from good filmmakers that can get the message out to
everybody,” Billingsley said.
