LOS ANGELES, CA AND PARK CITY, UT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 15, 2007 -- "Dream big then make it happen," that is the mantra of Mecca Dyas, Creator and Executive Producer of the cutting-edge talk show "Indie Appeal." "Indie Appeal" will showcase its unique format by hosting live tapings at this year's Sundance Film Festival. "Indie Appeal" is one of the media sponsors to be featured at this year's Main Event Lounge located at 608 Main St. in Park City. Main Event 2007 is a multi-media lounge that will be host to celebrity post-screening parties, executive meetings and all type of film-related chatter.

"'Indie Appeal' highlights emerging talent in the world of film, sports, music and TV so it made sense for the show to be at this year's Sundance Film Festival," says Maura Lanahan, Co-producer and Health & Fitness Correspondent of "Indie Appeal." "'Indie Appeal' will conduct interviews from the third floor media lounge of Main Event 2007 to showcase what is sure to be the next big thing in Independent film."

Its raw format has been deemed "'Chapelle's Show' meets 'The View.'" "Indie Appeal's" talented female cast includes Amy Weller, World News & Current Events Correspondent; Lauren Bergfeld, Celebrity News Correspondent; and resident DJ, DJ Goldielocks. Show topics include edgy, controversial and often times misunderstood topics like 'The Quest for Length: Does Size Really Matter'; 'Fitness made fun: Pole dancing classes' and the raunchy puppet stylings of Tony Nittoli.

"'Indie Appeal' provides a soundboard for hipsters who are 'in the know' yet not identifiable to the public -- yet," says Mecca Dyas, Executive Producer and Fashion & Music Correspondent of "Indie Appeal." "Everyone has that friend who can predict what independent artist is going to blow up. 'Indie Appeal' is the new source for everything underground on the cusp of being mainstream."

Definitely not your Mother's talk show, "Indie Appeal" is for those who have a taste for quirky humor in addition to staying current on world affairs. For more information on everything "Indie" in the world of fashion, music, film, television, and fitness please visit
