P.O.V. creator Marc Weiss teams up with former Peter Jennings colleagues to launch two websites inviting vivid personal stories about Internet dating and end-of-life dilemmas. Some stories will be used for a prototype episode of a new TV series to be directed by Food, Inc. director Robert Kenner.

Weiss, creator of P.O.V., the award-winning PBS series, have teamed up to create a unique new TV series that will couple the power of the Internet as a story-gathering medium with the power of TV as a story-telling medium. The series, tentatively titled "Stories," breaks new ground in the relationship between new media and quality nonfiction television programming.

The producers have launched two websites to gather stories on two very different topics. Stories from one of the topics will be chosen for production of a prototype that will be used to pitch the series. Robert Kenner, producer/director of Food, Inc., a feature documentary now in theatrical release, has been engaged to direct the prototype.

Weiss commented, "As we've seen in just the last few weeks, with events ranging from the protests in Iran to the death of Michael Jackson, the Internet has become a vital force for sharing information and connecting people. "Stories" will both reflect and take advantage of this profound and far-reaching cultural shift."

On meeting-stories.org, the producers are looking for stories illustrating how the Internet has transformed how many people look for love and relationships. Whether people found each other through a dating site, social networking, Craigs
