BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge based production company will soon be debuting a documentary about the "Price Is Right" featuring Bob Barker.
The documentary, Perfect Bid: The Contestant Who Knew Too Much, focuses on Ted Slauson, a super fan who attended 37 tapings of the show.
Slauson, a math teacher from Texas, recorded the show and memorized prices of products featured on the show since its inception in 1972. In 2008, Slauson helped a contestant place a perfect bid during the Showcase Showdown.
Both Bob Barker and Roger Dobkowitz, a five-time Emmy winner and 36-year producer of the show, commended the documentary. "I think this wonderful documentary has a big chance of breaking away from all the other documentaries that come out each year. I am happy someone is recognizing the dedication of our fans," said Dobkowitz.
"Ted Slauson is a loyal friend and true. People like that are the reason I didn't have to work for a living... its the least I could do," Barker said in a statement.
The documentary will premiere at the BendFilm Festival Bend, Oregon on October 14 and at the Orlando Film Festival on October 24.
