Andrew W.K. has just finished the initial filming for his new MTV2 show, "Your Friend, Andrew W.K." (web site). Andrew and the crew are currently "putting it all together and getting it ready for your TV screen," according to a posting on the singer's web site. "Your Friend, Andrew W.K." is set to air on MTV2 in a few months.
Andrew recently had the following to say about the show's concept: "At first I wanted to do something really planned out ? something more in a studio where the focus was super singular, but then after thinking about it more, I realized that I just wanted to talk and hang out with people. I thought it would be much better if the show wasn't only about me, but about all the awesome people that are part of what we're doing and part of the world. You know? It's going to be a show where anybody can have the chance to be on, and we'll just do stuff. My main idea with that is to solve problems, or give advice and help. You know? All I'm really thinking is that I want it to be OUR thing, not just a show where you watch this one guy do everything, but a show where you can watch your friends and people do cool stuff and work on basic things. Someone can write in to us, and if choose them we'll go to their house and hang out and talk about their life and their family and school and problems and good stuff and bad stuff... whatever. We'll go to people's work and help them out on the job and see what they're doing and how they make it happen."
