What Do You Want To Do Before you Die? That’s the premise of a new MTV Reality Show that will feature a local artist in their 2nd episode that is set to air later this month.
On Monday January 25th, MTV’s “The Buried Life” will focus on the story of Sam Fuller and his quest to reunite with a son he had not seen in 17 years. Dallas South News is teaming up with The Wolf Group to host a Buried Life Watch Party at 3900 Willow Street near Deep Ellum starting at 7:30 P.M (show starts at 9 o’clock). Sam Fuller will be the featured guest with a special appearance from another star of the episode.
MTV’s “The Buried Life” centers around four young Canadians traveling across the world looking to mark items off of their “Bucket List.” While knocking out things they’ve always wanted to do, the guys also help others achieve some of their life dreams.
Trailer – MTV’s “The Buried Life”
On a trip through North Texas, the crew came across a gentleman selling his art near downtown Dallas. Dallas South News has chronicled the events that followed the initial meeting which have taken Fuller from living in a shelter to opening a studio in the Artists Quarters at the Southside on Lamar.
But even after opening the studio in late November one thing remained: Sam had not yet met his son. But watching the trailer (which I showed Sam yesterday for the first time) it looks like Duncan Penn (one of the show’s stars) and his buddies may have just made it happen. But I guess we’ll have to find out for sure on the 25th.
Fuller will also have some of his work on hand at the watch party. I’d say secure your pieces while you can, because the exposure of this artist is about to take off.
Anyone interested in attending the watch party can RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information will follow in the weeks to come.
