BEARS ON FILM | Andy
Stark, left, created the reality
show 'Bear It All' with a
mostly Dallas-based cast in-
cluding Michael Moriarity,
right, who has already made
quite an impression.
(Tammye Nash/Dallas Voice)
and began planning the rest based on Moriarity
Only he did win.
"I had to rethink the entire thing," Stark cries.
"But we ran with it."
The show has cemented a certain foundation
for Moriarity. He moved to Dal-
las at the end of June, found a
job as a bartender three days
later and now finds himself a
recognizable face among the
local community. Of course, he%
modest about it and steers the
conversation away from himself.
"The show is a great portrayal and good-na-
tured of just us regular guys," he says. "Xthink
its great to bring that certain community to the
frontlines. You don't see that too much in main-
Andy Stark has the cred needed to produce
his own show. He d#s production work for
HDNet and MavTV so this isn't some guy with
a camera and an idea. Stark has a plan .
"I've had the idea of what I wanted in my

Show and so perhaps we'll highlight cities and
bear events as well as meet interesting people
from all around. Hopefully we do something
awesome with it."
While Stark and Moriarity have only experi-
enced positive feedback so far, they got a big
push from the bear-oriented
phone app Scruff. In one episode,
PhiUy is wearing a shirt with the
app's logo on it; founder Johnny
Scruff noticed and posted a notifi-
Facebook.com/BearltAIITV Jt cation so when people clicked
onto the app, they were Served
with a pop-up announcing the show and its
Stark and Moriarity are affable guys — the
kind that good luck seems to follow, which
seems to be the case here. With the help of pro-
ducer J. Louie Partida, Stark feels that the only
way is up after Sunday's screening. He's even
planned to have the show adjustable for differ-
ent networks should they be interested.
"I'm aiming for the 25-minute mark. We call
the show 'bear-satile' because it can be format-
ted to any network," he laughs.
Hmmm. Maybe it's better Stark stays behind
the camera. ■
